Hey everyone, this is in regards to the issue of not being able to connect to the playstation store. I too have had this issue, and I contacted Sony regarding the problem. What I was told was that it is a maintenance thing, and that you should attempt connecting to the store again within 4 to 5 hours of when you saw the error message for the first time. I do not know personally if this is the case, but it is what Sony told me, so I am taking it as fact. Hope it works, everyone have a good day. I'm crossing my fingers.
The person I spoke to said that they are doing the maintenance a few geographical locations at a time, and like I said, to check the store again 4-5 hours after first seeing the error message. My suggestion for you would be to check when you get up next morning.
