Sony announced routine maintenance to the Playstation servers on October 13. Scheduled to take place from 10am-5pm PST, they encouraged players to log in prior to the service in order to "retain online play/app access."

They made the announcement via their Ask Playstation account on Twitter.

The Playstation Network (PSN) has gone down a few times. And players were quick to state their displeasure. PSN servers went offline in August due to an alleged hack.

"Several gaming servers have been at the receiving end of DDoS attacks over the past several hours," Shacknews reported in August, "The group started with Blizzard's servers that include Hearthstone, Diablo 3, World of Warcraft, and others.

The group quickly spread to League of Legends and Path of Exile before deciding to spread their terror to Playstation Network."

PSN servers also went down in September due to an issue unrelated to cyber crime.

For those of you who want to play through the maintenance, be sure to remain logged in to your PSN account. If you don't you will be without online play for an extended period of time.
