In what's becoming an increasingly regular occurrence, the PlayStation Network will be down for maintenance this Thursday. The downtime will last from 6AM til midnight PT, or 9AM-3AM Verge time (ET), which is five hours longer than the last period of outage. It won't affect online gaming if you make sure to sign in beforehand, but the PlayStation Store on all devices, account registration and management, Music Unlimited and Video Unlimited services on PlayStation Home, and web-based login will all be inaccessible. As ever, Sony is staying mum on what behind-the-scenes enhancements the outage should allow, but it recommends following the PlayStation Twitter feed for updates.
