This 6 hour or longer(expecting it to be longer) maintenance today during is very ignoring.
Why can't Sony do these maintenance downtimes during the late night/early morning/overnight hours when there are way less people trying to use the Playstation Network for many reasons. It would way less of a hassle for most people to not do this type of thing during the day.
I just got a PSN card off of eBay that I want to make sure it works so I can get a season pass for a game and buy and download a digital only game, but oh well I guess not.
The hours of the maintenance is....
9:50AM PT/12:50PM ET
3:30PM PT/6:30PM ET
