Despite publishing their weekly PSN Game Store Updates, users are reporting that PSN is down for what appears to be unscheduled maintenance on Sony's PlayStation Network.

Finally, below are some recent Tweets from PlayStationEU on the current situation:

Current indications are that we'll be restoring PlayStation Network services in approx. two hours. We appreciate your patience.

PlayStation Network engineers are working hard on restoring the service. However, we have no news on when it will be back online.

We're aware that PSN is currently unavailable and working with the technicians to find out when it will be restored. Apologies.

Is XBLA ever down like PSN? Most my friends use XBLA and I'm considering buying a 360.

I haven't been able to get to the password change page or register on psn page since Saturday - sigh - these things always seem to happen when I actually have the time to play online...

If this is the case, then why do they not attack the rustbox online experience? They charged from the beginning.
