Sony players will remember the huge downtime the Playstation Network had almost two years ago due to some hacking, which compromised the Network’s security and requiring players to go through a password changing before being able to log in again. Obviously we’re not talking about a big downtime but still, some players may be annoyed at this fact.
Yesterday it was reported that the PSN was supposedly going down for maintenence for around 12 hours: the good thing was that most of the network’s features were still accessible so there were no problems reported. Players who were already logged in before the beginning of the downtime could play online without any trouble. Today Sony has announced through Twitter, that the downtime has been extended and it will last until tomorrow. Because of this extra maintenance time, even players who were already logged in the PSN won’t be able to use it like they did before: you can log in but the store is unavailable and online gaming impossible.
Tomorrow the Network should be back in full force, Sony promises: no need to worry about hackers or anything like that, it’s not the first time Sony has to extended the PSN downtime for simple maintenance.
