***Update***

Sony's maintenance on PSN will continue until early Saturday morning. Here are the exact times.

***Original Story***

The PlayStation Network maintenance which began on Thursday morning was supposed to last just for the day. Unfortunately, it's gone on a little longer and the online service still remains down. Sony has since updated their estimated maintenance timeframe, and expects it to be completed around 9:00pm PDT (12:00am ET).

Usually PSN maintenance isn't a problem as you can typically continue to enjoy online services without interruption -- provided you log in to PSN 5 days prior to the start of maintenance. However, Sony indicated that some authenticated users may have lost access during the maintenance and can no longer play games online or enjoy apps such as Netflix, HULU Plus, and Music Unlimited.

It's unclear what is causing the delay, but regardless, there's really nothing any of us can do about it except wait. Thankfully, the wait won't be too much longer.

"We apologize for this inconvenience and are working hard to restore access as soon as possible," Sony said.
