PlyStation Australia has announced the PlayStation Network will be down for scheduled maintenance later this week. The outage is expected to last 12 hours, from 3:00AM AEST on Friday, January 18. The outage will apparently affect all territories, with the US PlayStation Blog confirming the timing. The PlayStation Store and Account Management will be offline, but provided you sign into the PSN at any time before the outage begins, online play and apps will be available.
