From 8AM-11PM PST on April 14th, the PLAYSTATION Network will be down for "scheduled maintenance." According to the US PlayStation Support site
, the Store will be completely inaccessible as Sony makes the background changes necessary to accommodate the Store redesign
. Once the downtime is over, a new firmware update will be available for all to download.
It's unclear whether or not online gaming and friends lists will be affected by this maintenance. Don't be surprised if you won't be able to enjoy a bout of Warhawk
or Call of Duty 4
while Sony does their magic.
