If any of you fellow UK gamers were planning to do a little online gaming on your PS3 between the hours of 5pm and 6pm tonight you might want to change your plans.
Sony has sent over word that it will be taking its PSN service down for maintenance. This means all PSN related services, including the PlayStation Store, Home and account management will be suspended.
Although Sony has specified the length of downtime as an hour it may be down for a little longer "for testing purposes". As always if you manage to sign in before the black spot begins you should remain signed in.
Sony previously took the service offline earlier this month for six hours, saying only that it was for "maintenance" purposes.
