PlayStation Network Scheduled for Maintenance Next Week

PlayStation Network Scheduled for Maintenance Next Week

Sony has announced a one-hour downtime for the PlayStation Network next week to pave the way for a scheduled maintenance.

The tech giant made the announcement on the PlayStation website, with the downtime beginning taking place on October 26th.

Routine maintenance and improvements for PlayStation™Network will be performed for approximately 1 hour between 26/10/2016, 06:30 and 26/10/2016, 07:30 . Anyone who already has an account can still sign in to their PlayStation™Network profile, play games and use most applications while this maintenance is carried out. You will not be able to access Account Management, PlayStation Video, and PlayStation Store during this maintenance. We apologise for any inconvenience.

During this time, as long as you’re already signed in, playing multiplayer shouldn;t be an issue. However, those looking to download content from the PlayStation Store will have to wait until the downtime is finished.

Sony didn’t go into great detail on what is being improved, but we can guess it’s PlayStation VR related and a chance to iron out some issues following the last PS4 update.
