PlayStation Network is scheduled for a bit of summer cleaning in Europe this week, and will be offline from Thursday, July 26 at 4 p.m. to Friday, July 27 at 8 p.m. BST. The downtime affects Great Britain, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand and the United Arab Emirates.
Players in thee regions will be unable to access the PlayStation Store via the PS3, PSP or Vita, and the account management and registration pages will be down. To play online during the maintenance, sign into PSN before maintenance begins, though the aforementioned services will still be unavailable. Any trophies earned during the downtime will be added to profiles once PSN is back up and shiny.
