You've been warned

The PlayStation Network will take a short break for scheduled maintenance starting 15th October, platform holder Sony has announced. We daresay the offline time will be spent preparing for the upcoming PlayStation Store overhaul.

During the allotted period – scheduled to take place from 13:00PM BST through until 02:00AM BST the next day – you’ll be unable to access the PlayStation Store, Account Management and Account Registration. You’ll still be able to collect Trophies and – if this is like the usual PSN maintenance slots – play online, however.
