This coming Monday, Sony will be bringing down the Playstation Network to perform routine maintenance on the system. PSN Senior Community Manager Paul Sullivan announced the downtime on Jan 23, which is expected to last around six hours.

As is standard procedure during PSN maintenance windows, those who have signed into their Playstation Network account recently will still be able to access online games or use applications such as Netflix. Anyone who hasn’t logged into their account since Jan 20, however, will be unable to do the above activities. Furthermore, certain features will be completely inaccessible while the maintenance is underway regardless of recently a user has signed in. Sullivan confirmed that many services will be fully unavailable until the maintenance has completed by providing the following statement.

The PlayStation Store, PlayStation Home and Account Management will not be available during this time, and users may receive a maintenance notification when attempting to access these services.

The planned maintenance for the Playstation Network is scheduled to begin in the afternoon hours of Monday, Jan 27. Sony is informing fans to expect the downtime to last approximately six hours. However, as gamers are likely accustomed to seeing, that time could be extended on the day of the maintenance.
