PlayStation Network maintenance scheduled for August 25

Sony Computer Entertainment has announced via its forums that a scheduled PlayStation Network maintenance period will take place this coming Monday, August 25.

The 7-hour maintenance period won’t directly affect users who’ve signed into their consoles since August 20, with the ability to play games and use apps such as Netflix remaining unhindered. However, PlayStation Store, the Account Management section of the user interface and PlayStation Home will remain unavailable for the duration.

The downtime will commence at 9:40 AM and last until 4:50 PM Pacific Time (12:40 PM to 7:50 PM Eastern Time), with Sony making back-end improvements to the PlayStation Network.
