In what seems like a more common practice for the company these days, Sony has announced that it will once again be taking the PlayStation Network offline for maintenance.  This time around, it’s only for the European markets, as well as Great Britain, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand and the United Arab Emirates.

These regions will be unable to access the PlayStation Store on any game system going from roughly Thursday July 26 at 4:00 PM to Friday July 27 at 8:00 PM.  You’ll still be able to play online during maintenance, but you’ll need to make sure you’re signed into the PlayStation Network before maintenance begins.  Any Trophies you earn during this downtime will still be on your account, and uploaded once the services return.

We know it’s rough…but hang in there, folks!
