Playstation Network To Users: Fixing Things, BRB

The Playstation Network will be down for about 5.5 hours due to scheduled network maintenance.

Maintenance will last from 11:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST (8:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. PST) on Monday, March 10.

The good news is that if you really want to play online today or have taken today off to finally binge "Scandal," your plans need not be foiled.

Players who have signed onto the Network since March 6 will still be able to log on during maintenance and play online games or access partner apps like Netflix. Those who haven't logged on since that date can simply log on prior to the beginning of scheduled maintenance. Users will not be able to access Account Management, The Playstation Store or Playstation Home during maintenance.

TL;DR Version:

Log in before 11:30 a.m. EST, and you'll be all:
playstation

She's having dangerous amounts of fun.

Try to log in after maintenance starts, and you'll be all: playstation

And nobody wants to be this. Ever.
