Just moments after posting news of a possible return for the PlayStation Store in the next few hours, Sony has moved to quash the rumours.
"PlayStation Network will undergo routine maintenance today," SCEE blog manager James Gallagher stated.
"If you wish to play online during the maintenance, please ensure you sign in to PSN before 16:00.
"The latest information I have on PlayStation Store is that we are aiming to have it live by the end of May. Contrary to popular rumours, it will not be reopening tomorrow but we will let you know here as soon as the date is confirmed.
We’re sorry for any inconvenience caused by this essential maintenance."
