It hasn’t been attacked again. Sony wrote this morning that the company would be pulling the network down for maintenance today in advance of its planned full restoration by the end of the week.

The firm said it’s “still on track” for that deadline, having missed its previous deadline to have the whole network back up by the end of May.

“The server maintenance performed at this time represents a crucial step in the full restoration for PSN, including the PlayStation Store,” Eric Lempel, a Sony exec wrote on the blog.

During the maintenance period, gamers won’t be able to sign in. Anyone already in the system will not be booted out.
