The PSN Will Be Down for 13 Hours Tomorrow, But You Can Still Play Online

Sony Computer Entertainment announced today that the scheduled maintenance of the PSN that was supposed to happen on Monday and was postponed due to the DDoS attack that left the service down for most of last Sunday, will actually happen tomorrow.

PSN account services, PlayStation Home or PlayStation Store will be inaccessible from 10 AM EDT to 11 PM,  for a full 13 hours of downtime.

I guess the little PlayStation elves need time to scrub those tired motherboards. Luckily according to SCE if you’ll connect with a PS4 before the maintenance or with a PS3 and PS Vita during the five hours prior to the downtime, you’ll be able to stay connected and at least continue playing online.

Some additional downtime after the scheduled maintenance is also possible.

He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
