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.
