As much as we wish we could play anytime we want, we still have responsibilities, a pesky need to sleep, and PSN maintenance to keep us from our dreams. Tomorrow, Sony has scheduled an hour of maintenance from 1:00 AM to 2:00 AM of your local timezone. There will be no escaping this, since all PlayStation consoles are impacted.
During the outage, you will still be able to play your games on your primary PS4, but you will not be able to access Account Management, the PlayStation Store, PlayStation Music, or PlayStation Video. Some of the social features will also be unusable for this hour.
We hope Sony is using this time to prepare the system for some amazing feature in the future, but it is most likely boring network maintenance to keep the wheels spinning and gamers gaming. It should have minimal impact, but you should probably not wait to activate your PS4 or buy a game if you normally play during that time.
If you could make Sony add a new feature to the PS4, what would it be? Let us know your ideas in the comments.
Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
