The North American PlayStation Store update has been delayed by extended PlayStation Network maintenance. Sony has been unable to provide an ETA on when the downtime will end and the update will go live. We’re not certain what’s being added in this week’s update beyond a couple of new releases and some PlayStation Plus goodies.

Sony has revised its PlayStation Network maintenance plans. The downtime is now scheduled for 5:00AM PT on March 4, and is expected to last until 9:00PM – 17 hours. Previous announcements suggested a similar window, but kicking off much later in the day. As usual, the PlayStation Store and account management features will be offline, but you’ll be able to play online if you’ve logged in within the last few days.

Today’s scheduled 12 hour maintenance window for the PlayStation Network has been extended, Sony has announced via Twitter. The announcement mentions the downtime has been extended “to tomorrow morning”, and as it was supposed to end at 8:00 PM PT, that suggests we’re looking at an additional four hours at the very least. Updates are promised when available. If you signed into the PSN any time in the last few days, you should still be able to play online while Sony tinkers, although some network features will be unavailable.

After last week’s European downtime, the US arm of the PlayStation Network is also taking a Thursday night break for regular maintenance. Somewhat unusually, you will still be able to sign into the PSN during the “downtime”, but only if you’ve used your PSN ID over the last few days – so maybe check in with it now. Online play and all applications are expected to function as normal, but the PlayStation Store and Account Management will be locked for the duration. The outage is expected to last about two hours, and will run from run from 12:00 midnight PDT to 2:00AM PDT on August 2. Visit the US PS Blog for more information.

The European PlayStation Network (that includes Australia and New Zealand) is going down for scheduled maintenance from 4:00PM BST July 26 to 8:00AM BST July 27. As usual, the outage will close the PS Store, account management and registration, but if you’re signed in when the window starts you may be able to continue online gaming. For more information visit the EU PS Blog. No word from the US side whether the outage will affect international networks – yet.

A moderator post on the European PlayStation forums – and comments from many relieved users – indicates an error which blocked downloads and transaction lists of paid content has been resolved. The problem struck in the wake of last week’s maintenance and was not universal, but affected most PAL territories, hitting PS Plus users particularly hard.

“Great experience, really good time. Though I wouldn’t like to do it again. A determined hacker will get you, the question is how you build your life so you’re able to cope with those things.” - Tim Schaaff, president of network entertainment at Sony, showing good humour while speaking to GamesBeat of the mid-April PSN outage.
