The Big Bad PSN

Planning on hopping online and fragging some n00bs via the PSN today? You might want to make other plans, as according to PlayStation’s Matthew Harper, the service will be down for maintenance today. The outage starts at 9am EDT and runs through 10pm EDT, affecting both the PS3 and Vita.  Harper states:

During much of this time, users won’t be able to access the PlayStation Store, PlayStation Home, Account Management or play online. PSN enabled websites will not be able to service users, including [the PlayStation Blog].

Sony has not given reason for the downtime.
