PSN 'essential maintenance' tomorrow for 5 hours

After we were tipped about "essential maintenance work" being conducted in Europe on the PSN, we contacted Sony to find out if North America would be shutting down for a time as well. Turns out, it is. The PSN is scheduled to be unavailable tomorrow, Oct. 14, during the following time:
  • 11AM - 4PM Pacific
  • 2PM - 7PM Eastern
Be sure to plan accordingly and get those petitions ready demanding a refund for the downtime.

[Thanks, James]
