Sony has confirmed that it will be putting PlayStation Home under the knife for scheduled maintenance today, with the online social platform heading offline for six hours while it upgrades to v1.04.

According to the PlayStation Blog, the primary reason for the downtime is to offer a remedy for users experiencing trouble accessing Home due to high demand for the service.

The post goes on to state that Home’s voice chat functionality will also be disabled temporarily as part of its transition from v1.03 – v1.04, though will be implemented at a later date. In its absence, Sony suggests make use of the PS3’s swanky new wireless keypad.

Stay tuned.
