Welcome to the PlayStation Community.
Ya it's the 31 and I cannot Access the store. It seems like the service has been down for a week or so. I don't pay for playstation plus just to waste money and not use the services. If its going to be down longer than expected maybe you should let your customers know ok.
I think you're mistaken, the above notice from 'Tempest' was about 'FORUM' maintenance, not store maintenance, the PS Store is working perfectly fine.
If you're seeing a maintenace issue please try one of the following:
1. Delete the PS Store Applicationn & re-download/install it.
2. Ensure the date & time on your PS3 is correct.
