PSN going down for maintenance today

The PlayStation Network will be down for maintenance later today, Sony has announced.

In Europe, the service will be down from 4pm until 2am tomorrow morning with the PlayStation Store, PSN account management and registration inaccessible. As for North America, the same services are offline today between 8am and 10pm PST.

Fortunately in-game trophies will still be able to be collected during the blackout, and will be updated on your PSN profile once the service is back up and running. In other words, carry on enjoying Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – both containing some cracking single-player action.
