This should not come as a surprise as scheduled maintenance is nothing new for PS3 gamers. The Playstation Network will be down from 8 am to 11 pm Pacific time on Thursday. You will be unable to access the PlayStation Store, Playstation Home or use Account Management. One piece of good news is that online play and your online apps will still work, granted that you have signed into the PSN within the past 5 days. All of this was reported on the Official Playstation Blog.
