Sony has announced yet another PlayStation Network maintenance window this Thursday, March 1 – and it’s a biggie, clocking in at a minimum of 14 hours.

Unusually, this one won’t allow you to stay signed in for the duration, and all websites and online play will be down in addition to Home and the PlayStation Store.

The downtime kicks off at 8:00AM PST/11:00AM EST/4:00PM GMT/3:00 AM Friday AEST, and is expected to run through at least 10:00PM PST/1:00AM Friday EST/6:00AM Friday GMT/5:00 PM Friday AEST.

Sony has given no indication of the reason for the outage, which is at least the third Thursday maintenance window this year, but the longest to date.
