PSN Downtime next week


Sony will take the PlayStation Network offline in the UK next week between 5:40PM UK on Monday August 25 until 12:50AM UK on Tuesday August 26.



During the downtime, the following services will be unavailable:

PlayStation Store on all devices.
PlayStation Network Account Management.
PlayStation Network Account Registration.
Entertainment services.
Online gameplay.
Signing in via PAL umbrella PlayStation.com sites.

Usually if you sign in before maintenance then you can still play online, so give it a try.

Could this be preparation for the new firmware or Destiny?

Last time they pulled one of these with a duration that long, on a bank holiday & on a Monday it was prior to a FW upgrade. Sony FW's are always released on a Tuesday. Let's just hope this is FW 2.0 as I'm getting a little fed up waiting for it!

usually 3 or 4 hours Prometheus, 7 hours usually means a decent change, FW could be likely

thats what happens when last gen xbox led the pack, got all the money for the servers, as ps4 is leading the pack now and getting the money im guessing in the near future sony servers will get the monster overhaul

Yea the PS4 also downloads all updates/patches while on standby so it updates while you're asleep, at work or whatever the case may be. The downtime is a pretty rare thing and it never stops me playing online just means I cant access the store. Will be nice once they overhaul it though and the downtime becomes a thing of the past

the more people who choose ps the more they will need to upgrade the servers, think it will happen soon too as i think destiny will push the limits alone

"so Sony has to take the whole ps4 down just for a FEW yet ms brings out updates every month and nothing goes down in fact I got the new update while I was asleep" - As far as I've seen, since the PS4 and Xbox One released, Xbox Live has had just as much downtime as PSN.

This is the first time the servers are going down for maintenance in 9 months, no? It;s only a few hours. It's not a big deal. You can play offline or do something else for a few hours.

Xbox Live never goes down for maintenance, the only times it goes down is when things go wrong, and is not down long.

Looks like Firmware 2.0 is coming on Tues. With such a big maintenance it must surely be the case, right?

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
