The period is required to upgrade the infrastructure for the launch of the PlayStation 4
Video game company Sony announces that it plans to take the PlayStation Network service down for maintenance on Wednesday, September 25 from 10:15 AM to 4:15 PM Pacific Standard Time.The team explains in the official blog post for the downtime that, "If you’ve signed onto PSN over the past few days, you’ll still be able to play online and access apps during this period, but you may receive a maintenance notification when attempting to access the PlayStation Store, PlayStation Home, and Account Management as these services will be unavailable."
Sony apologizes in advance for all issues that gamers might encounter during the PSN maintenance.
The company is not ready to offer any reason for the period of downtime, but the service is probably getting upgrades that are required before the launch of the PlayStation 4.
The device will be out on November 15 in North America and on November 29 in Europe.
