PSN will be down for scheduled maintenance 26/27 July 2012
The PlayStation Network will be unavailable from 16:00 on Thursday 26 July 2012 until 08:00 on Friday 27 July 2012 (BST) due to good old ‘scheduled maintenance’. During this time, players will not have access to the PlayStation Store or Account Management and Account Registration services.
However, gamers will still be able to play online during the maintenance window, as long as they sign in to PSN before maintenance begins. However, it is worth noting that even if players sign in before the maintenance starts, they will still not have access to the store and account services during the period.
Any PlayStation Trophies that players earn during the outage will be synced to their profiles as soon as the network is back up.
Those with queries have been advised to post their questions on the PlayStation forums at community.eu.playstation.com.
