Sony’s blog manager Fred Dutton posted today users might experience maintenance notifications when trying to access the PlayStation Network. The maintenance would start at 12:30 PM Eastern on Tuesday (9:30 AM Pacific, 5:30 PM British Summer Time). Services would resume to normal at 7 PM Eastern, 4 PM Pacific, and midnight British Summer Time.
Dutton says players “will be able to access online play and apps provided you have signed in to the Network at some point between now and the time of the maintenance.”
Last week, PlayStation 3 users experienced issues with the console’s firmware update 4.45. Errors found within the updates caused some consoles to be bricked. Sony has since then apologized for the inconvenience and has taken necessary steps to resolve the problem.
