Previously Scheduled PSN Maintenance Re-Scheduled for Tomorrow
Written Saturday, March 03, 2012 By Dave Olsen

The PSN maintenance that was originally scheduled for March 1, then it was postponed, and now the "significant" maintenance will occur tomorrow.  The estimated beginning of the downtime is non Pacific time (GMT -8 for those unfamiliar with American time zones) and ending around 2 AM Pacific time on March 5. 

If you are connected to PSN when the maintenance begins, you will be disconnected and will not be able to sign in, access the PSN Store, account management, Playstation Home, or play online until the maintenance is completed. 

So there you go.  The maintenance is on.  What the maintenance is, I guess we'll find out on Monday.

They probably did it on the weekend to get it up before Mass Effect 3 hits the shelves on the 6th. I don't know why the initial delay but that's probably why they started it on the weekend rather than delaying it further.

from 3pm-6am(mon) my time in the eastern timezone. hmmm gd i wont have to worry about my PSN friends while i watch nascar.

I believe the people who only ***** about the PSN being down are people who are addicted to Call of Duty or Battlefield 3 online multiplayer or even home. yes i admit im addicted to home but im gonna take this down time as a chance to catch up on my games. i may even take a week offline to do so.

speaking of games i find funny that people are saying good let get it over with before mass effect 3 comes out *cough #11 *cough, cough*. Sure Mass Effect 3 does have multiplayer but i could careless about that. If i decide to get ME3 day one i am only getting for story mode to me the mass effect series join a list of game series that were ruined by online multiplay. Assassin Creed series, the Bioshock series & the Uncharted series. all of thoughs series were better without multiplayer holding theme back.

@7 Dame straight!!! Good times those 90's were for us. Call some friends up and pop in KOF or SF2. Put it on the highest difficulty and pass the controler around the room after you get your ass kick by the first guy. Thats what I call multiplayer XD

I wish Sony would update how the trophy list is displayed. My list, like alot of yours I'm sure, is getting rather long. Maybe do something like this site does and hide games that are 100%, or put them in a sub-folder.

@25 bashing on Uncharted MP is not cool even though it has a lot of problems... I've put in almost 700 hours into both Uncharted MP's so call me addicted but I don't care. I'm actually happy PSN is going down during my peak gaming hours so I can play some of my Singleplayer games that I've had since last summer...

Because ME3 launches on the 6th.

"If you are connected to PSN when the maintenance begins, you will be disconnected and will not be able to sign in, access the PSN Store, account management, Playstation Home, or play online until the maintenance is completed." Maybe it didn't happen to you yet because you live in a different timezone.

I love it how some of you use the "I wonder what you were doing when we have no online play" saying. How about you use your brain a little more, pal? Have of the gamers now aren't from the early 90's, I am, but that doesn't mean EVERYONE is. Some people just got into gaming when online came into play [PS3/Xbox 360/Wii]. People are gonna complain, get off your high horse and quit judging people for complaining. There's no reason this maintenance should be this long. A whole day to make sure people can't hack the PS3? While the other down times are much shorter than this? Yeah, give me a break.

By the way, give me 40 thumbs down, I don't care I'm speaking the truth.

@25 Assassin's Creed, Uncharted, and Mass Effect 3 were not ruined by multiplayer. It was put in as an option for different gamers. The games are still solid and fun and have good story lines. Furthermore, the multiplayer is not mandatory for you to enjoy a game, so just don't play it.
