PSN down during Sony conference

Whatever could it mean?

Sony has announced that the PlayStation Network will be "taken offline for maintenance" later today between 5pm and 7pm BST.

Presumably it's an entirely innocent period of quiet reflection that just happens to coinc--WAAAIT A MINUTE! That's when the Sony gamescom conference takes place!

Obviously there's no cause to attach particular significance to this fact yet, but with Sony set to talk up the PSP app store during the show it wouldn't be utterly surprising to see PSN pop back up with that in place.
