The Playstation Network will be going into lockdown for a 12 – 13 hour period starting at 11pm on Monday 16th April until 11am Tuesday 17th April AEST. For those who are in different time zones, here is a list:

  • United Kingdom – 2pm on Monday 16 April 2012 until 2am on Tuesday 17 April 2012.
  • US Eastern – 9am on Monday 16 April 2012  until 10pm on Monday 16 April 2012.
  • US Pacific – 6am on Monday 16 April 2012 until 7pm on Monday 16 April 2012

While the Playstation Network is down, all services that are integrated with the Playstation Network will be offline. This includes:

  • PlayStation Store on PS3, PSP and PS Vita.
  • PlayStation Network Account Management.
  • PlayStation Network Account Registration.
  • Online Multiplayer
  • PSN Enabled Services

If you still want to play online while the PSN is in maintenance mode, then sign in before the scheduled time of maintenance and play away. Of course, trophies can still be earned and will be synched once the Playstation Network is back online. While it is down, why not enjoy your single player games that are collecting dust? They deserve your attention once in a while.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
