PlayStation Network has not yet recovered completely after the hacker attack in April, but now it seems that a full recovery is very close. Sony has said that the PlayStation Network will be taken down tomorrow, 31 May.

According to PlayStation EU Blog, the service will be taken down for maintenance tomorrow, wivh indicates that the PlayStation Store will be coming back up, and that online functions in games like DiRT 3 will finally be made available.

PSN Network Maintenance has been scheduled to take places from Tuesday 31st May at 19.00 GMT until Wednesday 1st June 01.00 GMT.

During the maintenance window, the following services will be unavailable:

  • PC Registration
  • Console Storefront
  • PS3 Account Management
  • PS3 Network Account Registration
  • PSP Network Account Registration
  • Qriocity Account Management

If you attempt to log in during this period you will receive the site maintenance notification page.

If you are already signed in during this period you should be able to stay connected and you will not lose your gaming session (however the above services will still be unavailable).

If you have any queries please Tweet or PM me.


Sony has previously said that they have ambitions of recovering the complete PlayStation Network by the end of May, so this would be just in time for a full recovery.
