PSN maintenance scheduled today, Store not back tomorrow

Sony fans will have to endure a brief spell of PSN downtime today; the European PlayStation Blog has revealed that the service will undergo “routine maintenance” today between 16:00 BST and 00:00 BST. Gamers can remain online by signing it before the maintenance starts, however.

Contrary to popular belief, this downtime does not mark the return of the PlayStation Store. The blog reads: “The latest information I have on PlayStation Store is that we are aiming to have it live by the end of May. Contrary to popular rumours, it will not be reopening tomorrow but we will let you know here as soon as the date is confirmed.”

End of May it remains then.
