SONY will perform its regular PlayStation Network maintenance on Wednesday May 25, the company announced on its official website. The maintenance will start from 9:30 AM and will continue for two hours and will end at 11:30 AM. If you live on the east coast the maintenance will start at 12:30 AM EST and end at 2:30 AM EST.
SONY explained on its PSN service status page that only PlayStation 4 services will be affected by the maintenance. During this period users will not be able to access PlayStation video, account management and PlayStation Store.
If anyone has logged in before the maintenance starts, he/she will be able to play games and use other applications without any interruption once the maintenance kicks off.
Sony also apologized for the inconvenience:
We strive to ensure that PlayStation Network services are available at all times, but occasionally we must take PlayStation Network offline to perform essential maintenance and implement feature enhancements. We are working hard to reduce the duration of each maintenance. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Last time SONY ran its PlayStation Network maintenance in March 2016.
