Update 2: A PlayStation Knowledge Center update says PSN maintenance in North America is now scheduled to end tonight at around 9PM PT.

Update 3: So much for that. PSN downtime in Europe is now extended through to Saturday morning. @PlayStationEU tweets: "Unfortunately PSN maintenance is still underway and service is now not expected to resume before tomorrow morning. We'll update again soon."
