PSN Maintenance due this Monday

Sony has announced that there is PSN Maintenance scheduled for Monday 10th September from 16:00 BST to 05:00 BST on Tuesday 11th.

For the duration of the maintenance Account Management and the PS Store will be unavailable. This means that some users will also be unable to log into the PlayStation Network.

There may also be some additional downtime after the maintenance period for testing purposes.

Why do it during the busiest time on the gamers calendar? A massive amount of kids and adults who play the PS3 play it between those hours as they are at work and school. They should have started it at 01:00 until 13:00. Would have been barely noticeable by a larger amount of PSN users.

The do it at those times all the time because they are not peak hours in other parts of the world. Unfortunately the EU is always the one teritory that ends up taking the hit with PSN downtime. If it is like most maintenance then it will only be account management and store that won't be accessable. I've not seen a maintenance for a long time where I was unable to at least log in and play online.

I agree, why do it during the day when that's the time the majority of users will be online. Surely doing it at night and during the early hours of the day would make more sense.

The maintenance doesn't really bother me as I have a lot of single player games to play.

This is the reason i dont mind paying for my Xbox live subscription. We rarely are down for maintenance. seems like PSN is down quite alot

Most of the PSN downtime is usually to do with the store and account systems. It hardly ever goes down now where you can't sign in and play online, and it only ever goes down for a few hours as well.
