Sony have announced another routine maintenance for Playstation Network.

Scheduled to take place on Monday, August 17th, at 9:30pm PDT and August 18th at 12:30am EDT / 5:30am GMT, the update will take approximately 90 – 120 minutes.

If you’re already signed in to PSN, you’ll still be able access your profile, games and entertainment applications, but account management, Playstation Video and Playstation Store purchases won’t be functional whilst the maintenance takes place.


Sony recommends users activate their PS4 as their primary console, if they haven’t already, before maintenance. The specific additions that the maintenance brings haven’t been detailed, but as usual they’re likely general improvements to the networks overall performance.

As usual regards the scheduled maintenance, Sony said “We thank you for your patience and support and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause”.
