Sony has scheduled planned maintenance on Thursday which means that there will be some downtime that you should be aware of.
The post on the Playstation Community forum states that the Playstation Network will be down on Thursday November 3rd from 16:00 to 21:00 BST (British Summer Time). For South Africans that should mean that the PSN will be down from 18:00 to 23:00. They mention that it may be down a little longer than stated, for testing purposes.
So if you were planning on playing Battlefield 3 all night, you may want to look at renting a Blu-Ray movie instead. The text and details from the post after the jump.
