What’s that old saying? If something can go wrong, it will go wrong. That is precisely what went through my head as I read the PSN maintenance notice. Originally, the maintenance downtime was supposed to last into Thursday night but continued into Friday morning, it was then announced that PSN would be down till further notice. Then an announcement came that it would be up by Friday afternoon Eastern time. Now here we are on the way into Saturday and maintenance is expected to be up by 5AM Eastern Saturday.
The downtime has players being unable to sign in even though they signed in to access online play and Netflix prior to the maintenance. Sony promised players who did this would not experience problems with online play or Netflix during the maintenance, following the extension however, players are unable to access either with an exception of some.
The twitter update timeline is available as shown:
Hopefully this unexpected extended downtime will not be pushed back any farther!
