Those hoping the Playstation Store will return today certainly won’t be happy. Instead of re-opening the store, Sony has once again taken down the entire Playstation Network. “Scheduled Maintenance” is the reason given for today’s downtime, but at least Sony has been kind enough to provide a time schedule.
In the US, PSN will be down from until 5pm PST, while in Europe the network will remain down until midnight BST.
As for the store, Sony says they are aiming to relaunch it by the end of the month. We’ll just have to wait and see if that actually happens… (prediction: It won’t)
