Lengthy PSN Maintenance to Affect GT5’s Online Services, March 4th/5th

Gran Turismo 5 145 March 4, 2012 by

Sony has announced a lengthy scheduled maintenance event for the PlayStation Network. The downtime begins at 20:00 UTC/GMT today (March 4th), and is expected to last more than 14 hours, until approximately 10:00 UTC/GMT on Monday, March 5th (convert this to your local timezone here).

When the maintenance period begins, all players will be disconnected, and cannot sign back in to Sony Entertainment Network services until the maintenance is complete. Although the announcement is currently only posted on Sony’s North American PlayStation website, other regions, including Europe, should expect to be affected as well. For specific information on the maintenance status, keep an eye on PlayStation’s Twitter feed.

Of course, this also means Gran Turismo 5‘s online services will be inaccessible during this time, so plan any online scheduled online racing events accordingly. As always, feel free to pass the time in our forums while you wait!
