The practice has become common among manufacturers operating in the field of video games, they are obliged to offer quality services to their audience. Sony is one of the lucky ones and requires from time to time to intervene on its systems in order to ensure their proper functioning. The main question is none other than the PlayStation Network service allowing access to multiplayer and various content offered by the Japanese firm. Already in service on March 2, 2016, the PSN network is about to be suspended again but for a very short period.

So, on Tuesday, April 19 2016 between 10:00 AM and 04/19/2016, 12:00 PM, Sony will conduct a routine procedure on its servers of the PlayStation Network for two hours. Intervention that could cause some annoyances and make some online services inaccessible.

Only two small hours, we agree that this is not a long time! Note, however, that it is always possible to play online during this period but only the PlayStation Store, PlayStation video and Account Management will be inaccessible. No real need to fear, everyone can play their favorite games such as The Division to obtain the precious Valkyria SMG.

Anyone who already has an account can still sign in to their PlayStation Network profile, play games and use most applications while this maintenance is carried out. We strive to ensure that PlayStation™Network services are available at all times, but occasionally we must take PlayStation Network offline to perform essential maintenance and implement feature enhancements.
