Today Sony's Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has announced news of scheduled PlayStation Network maintenance and confirmed that there will be no PSN Store update today as well.
To quote: PlayStation Network is scheduled to undergo maintenance today, from about 8am until approximately 5pm Pacific time. During this time, registration and Account Management will be inaccessible, including the password reset process.
While some users may experience difficulty signing in to PSN, the majority of consumers will be able to play online as well as sign in to external sites that require PSN authentication (like this one).
For those asking about the PlayStation Store, we're still targeting restoration of all services by the end of this month. Contrary to reports, the Store will not be publishing today.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
