    Just fancied a quick go online with RFOM and i couldn't connect, then the message that the network was suspended came up. Maybe this is the big update thats due to happen today?

    From the original notice:

    "This is scheduled to take place between 16:00 and 19:00 BST (17:00-20:00 CEST) on Tuesday 8th May 2007."

    So looks like it's started.

    Apparently the US and JP networks are down too, but I haven't tried to get independent confirmation of that.

    edit: Yes confirmed the US store is down as well so it's a global update.

    It's an infrastructure update.. it could easily come back with no visible changes at all. I would hope they'd use the opportunity to make some site changes as well but as they don't need to bring the network down for that they don't have to.

    I'd be surprised if it affected an individual game like RFOM at all... that's up to the publishers.

    That's an individual game thing and nothing to do with the PSN as such. The games themselves have to support worldwide servers. The only way of possibly doing that on existing games is through patches.

    Regards the update I doubt we will see a lot of new stuff today if the official notice on the Playstation site is to go by. It looks like it's more of a preperation for updates over the next few weeks. I could be wrong though.

    UK Store looks identical too. Another disappointment...

    To be fair to Sony they did say that this was only in preparation for future developments.

    Well the U.S store has got more organised and there are a couple of new Movie trailers such as Shrek3 and Transformers apart from that nothing seems to have changed, the UK store nothing has changed, it may have just been bigger servers added for when they do add stuff who knows.

    No, just nothing yet, they said over the coming weeks.

    Who knows, this friday maybe we'll be getting something more than a Video of a car we can't even drive in GT:HD.
