    PlayStation Network Offline For Six Hours on Monday

    Sony has announced it's taking PSN down for six hours on Monday January 27 to perform mandatory maintenance.

    In Europe, the maintenance will take place between 5.30pm and 11.30pm GMT, while North America will have the PSN taken down between 9.30am PT/12pm ET and 3.30pm PT/6.30pm ET.

    If you've signed into the PlayStation Network any time since January 20, you'll be able to play games online and access apps like Netflix without issues. The PS Store, PlayStation Home and Account Management won't be available though.

    In other words, make sure you sign into PSN this weekend if you're looking to get some online gaming done on Monday!

    Nice that Sony have decided to do this in Europe when most of us ARE NOT at work

    They always prioritize the US gamers with these times. Hopefully they add the ability to change regions but doubt it, the wait goes on for that and changing PSN IDs.

    Sony has to find a way to do better. Even though I hate everything Microsoft, even in the 5 or so years I had XBL I don't ever recall the servers going offline for an extended period of time. Even when the servers were overloaded it wasn't that long. That's just crazy. I'll be at work all day anyway so it won't bother me personally, but still. Haha

    Sucks if I want to play Nba2k14. Luckily I have Tomb Raider now so I won't care too much.

    Yeah I'm with Greatness. I just turned my PS4 on to play some NBA2K and the servers are down. They need to find a better solution for maintenance, we are paying for this service now so this kind of thing should not be happening.

    Maintenance didn't even effect me! I was playing at points but all the online ran as smooth as a whistle! (Probably because I've been on every day since the 20th)
    First maintenance that I haven't been locked out though, so pretty happy about that!

    i agree with you guys except we're paying less for the service, also we're getting more out of it with games/discounts/betas. overall we're paying for the dedicated servers and the games.

    on the Xbox, users are paying for services that are free on PSN and they don't get MMOs for free either (which will be big this generation). They are paying for extra maintenance of the servers and now the dedicated servers.

    Sony too could charge a lot more or separate their online and game services but they want to combine it to give a more valuable service. they are taking in a lot of the costs.

    looking from that perspective, I can deal with this. but yes, i agree that it sucks and they should try to at least minimize it if not completely eliminate it. especially now that they're getting a lot of Xbox users. they owe it to everyone for switching over.
