PSN maintenance scheduled for June 25

Routine maintenance will bring down PlayStation Store, PlayStation Home, and Account Management for 6.5 hours tomorrow.

Some PlayStation Network services will be offline tomorrow, June 25, during a 6.5-hour period of scheduled maintenance, Sony announced today.

The routine maintenance will start at approximately 9:30 a.m. PDT and run through about 4 p.m. PDT.

During the maintenance, the PlayStation Store, PlayStation Home, and Account Management will be offline. Online play and access to applications will remain available, provided users have signed into the PSN at some point between now and the time of maintenance tomorrow.

"We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your support," Sony said.

THE LAST OF US is without a doubt the best PS3 game EVER made !!! It is the perfect way to send the PS3 out as the best console  with the best game in PS history.

sad thing is..Sonys online architecture still wont be able to contend with what the Original Xbox did..Right now Sony is slightly better then what Dreamcast did..LOL I joke I joke but really they need to hire a super nerdy guy to help them build a better online..Its just too much afterthought going on..

Does this have something to do with the firmware problem from last week?  They said the patch would come on the 27th.

PSN,PS3,PS4 suck and I'm sure this is gonna happen on PS4 as well.

Xbox One Xbox LIVE is better, superior.

Why is this here? All who would need to know about this will already know, or will find out via their chosen Sony unit. Just asking for stupid "flame wars" and such with such a pointless "article".

Xbox live is better, the store is 100x better, and the regional matchmaking is better. Mulitplats play better and the controller is better on the 360. Oh, and I like 360 exclusives better and I have every one of them on the PS3.360 Winner this gen! Next gen, I am buying a PS4

Of course xbox live is better and reliable, microsoft are a computer company that deals with networks and software quite frequently so Sony just needs to step up their game that's all it has little to do with a paid subscription

It's one way to get people out of their rooms and outdoors to get some fresh air. 6 Hours ain't nothing... If you think it is then you really need to sort you life out.

So they decide to do online maintenance on Tuesday? The day the store gets weekly updated?

Of course they would.

Reason #2039405 why paying for PS4 online services is a good thing.

@HapiJoel Hahah yeah that sucks, but cheer up it's just for one day. Go play some TLOU story mode, which is great and is makes you forget about online gaming for a while ;)

@nousername66 it won't be free next gen so enjoy it while you can ... you get what you pay for and as far as PSN is concerned it's not much.

@dark_princess29 they say bad stuff to make them feel good about their system, and ignoring the truth that the other systems (PS3 & Wii) has sold more and better than Xbox. That makes it the worst console this generation too. 

3v1LR0n1N
3v1LR0n1N

@SultaN-s  no no you'll still be able to play online, and use the apps ... pay attention... its just 6 hours (not days) of no store, no home, and no account management thats it

@Lhomity all these years sony fans was saying why pay for online. and now they announced PS4 online service need Sub all of them says "if you want good service you have to pay". pathetic ... and they call the machine "xbox 180" ...

@Lhomity i rarely defend the SONY tards, but what does that have anything to do with it? i pay for LIVE and they take it down sometimes

@sladakrobot @leimonides the maintenance itself isn't pointless; I know very well what happened last week to many ps3 owners.  Posting this here, to me, seams unnecessary. Or, do really that many people come here to find out about this type of update notice?

HapiJoel
HapiJoel

@brunod_f @HapiJoel Still havent got TLOU, so will have to continue on my epic catch up of Lost instead :) Or you know, maybe actually go outside or something...

@bndori @dark_princess29 Then why are there so many Sonybots on every article to do with Xbox? They slam and dunk the 360 with absolutely no knowledge of what they are talking about. They're like rabid dogs in a desert. Perhaps bndori, it's you who is so insecure about the PS3 that it makes you delusional and naïve about your console.

Sporks_Calamity
Sporks_Calamity

@bndori nope, the PS3 and 360 have sold roughly equal amounts of units. So how is that ignoring the truth?. And here's another truth, the Sony fan boys are just as equal of saying bad stuff to make themselves feel better about their system. Sony / PS fan boys are the worst bunch in gaming history.

@arqe @Lhomity but there is a a huge difference on xbl you are just pay to play games on line and use services that you are paying for like netflix on the ps4 you still can use all third party services  without ps+ plus you get allot of stuff with ps+ it even makes it worth it like all the free games we get and the huge discounts we get plus a bunch of other cool features with it now and guess what you just to pay $50 a year and you will get ps+ on vita ps3 and ps4


hell I say if you own a ps3 and/or vita and don't have ps+ then you are a idiot

HowlPendragon

@Merseyak Yeah. Even the first iteration of the PS Store wasn't completely stable lol. 

Oh well, as you said, PS4 :p

@SultaN-s @3v1LR0n1N lol I'm half a sleep and I knew you were being sarcastic but there are allot of people here that needs you to put sarcasm in your post for them to realize it

@shadowhunter0 @arqe @Lhomity Bullshit ... spin it more. Any reference from here on in pertaining to this subject will be "BUT SONY this and AT LEAST SONY." Your arguments are so shallow and botish. Why can't you be honest for a change and just say it SUCKS big time and leave it there. I know it sucks big time with Microsoft as well but get a reality check.

flyingdutchdog3
flyingdutchdog3

@shadowhunter0 @arqe @Lhomity Yea now see and hear PS3 spin doctors to the rescue. Anything but admit the truth. "Oh but there is a huge difference." What an idiotic remark ... your spinning it every which way just to rationalize SONY is gonna screw you with online subscriptions. It's gone from Microsoft charges to play online and they are assholes to "but Sony has copied this move and all is good." What a lot in life you Sony people are. Well here's justice: I'm not going to buy the PS4 because they make you pay to play online. lol fools.

@arqe I wouldn't bother with the PS / Sony fan boys. I know it's literally impossible to compare as to which fan boy group are obnoxious [since all of them share an equal obnoxious level]. But from my own experience; they are one of the most self-righteous, obnoxious bunch I have come across. 

Sporks_Calamity
Sporks_Calamity

@shadowhunter0 XBL are offering a similar service as well, like getting 2 free games. If you said PS+ is worth more for your money than you would have had a much better argument. However you lost that argument when you proceeded to call any one doesn't have a PS+ an idiot.    

sleepnsurf

@shadowhunter0 @arqe @Lhomity  SO I am an idiot since I dont have PS+? I was a member when target had the $11 year sub screw up and after that year I said HELL NO I wont pay for this service again.

shadowhunter0
shadowhunter0

no with MS indie developer need a publisher to plublish their game on the 360 and now the xb1 but with Sony they don't and also Sony has been very indie friendly for a very long time they are just pushing it most harder then time around

shadowhunter0
shadowhunter0

@arqe @shadowhunter0 @Lhomity I still say it sucks that you have to pay for it but at least Sony made it part of ps+ so you are getting way more than just paying to play games online

arqe

@shadowhunter0 @arqe @Lhomity you missed the point. What im arguing since this console wars most of the sony guys are making two-faced comments. First it was why should i pay to play online since i paid for the game. Now they announced that you have to pay for PSN to play online. They immediatly turned and said "if you want better online service you should pay for it". What happened ? I mean those were the crybabies who doesnt wanna pay but now suddenly sony asking same thing and its GOOD for them to pay ? I dont own any sony product and my friends doesn have ms so we play Ps exclusives on his Ps3 and Xbox exclusives on my Xbox and PC for all others.And 1 more thing why i hate Sony. When they announce something they talking like they invented it like "Move" same with nintendo but got extra "shiny balls on it". Indie developer friendly generation ! MS was doing that since 2008. etc etc ....

@OldKye script kiddies got nothing of real use from XBOX LIVE though did they? how many Credit Card numbers and names & addys did the they get from the PSN hack? XBL for the WIN!

OldKye

@Lhomity Yes but that's in part because it was the first console internet service that got hacked ever lol.

Ever since then they have been really hardcore about maintaining it.
