We’ve been asked today how long the PSN maintenance is in the UK and also exactly what the scheduled end time will be, so in this article we just wanted to give Product Reviews readers that information and sadly you won’t like it. The reason we say that is due to PSN being down for a greater length of time in the UK than USA.
How long does PSN maintenance take today? Those of you wanting to know when will the UK PSN maintenance end should note its schedule is a few hours longer than our US readers. The UK PlayStation Network went down before those in the USA and it will continue until well after the US PSN comes back up.
The UK PSN maintenance was due to start at 4PM BST, although it in fact didn’t begin for about another 30 minutes. As you can see in the tweet below, the PSN maintenance UK end time is 5am BST on August 29th and means the online services will not be working for around 13 hours.
PSN maintenance will go ahead today (Thurs 28 Aug) at 16:00 to Fri 29 Aug 5:00BST. Thanks for your patience. Details> http://t.co/fl0zGEZQYS

PS4 and PS3 owners in the USA will notice PSN down in their region from 9:40am to 4:50pm PST, so this is 8 hours and a massive 5 hours less than those in the UK. It’s unclear why Europe will see services offline a lot longer, but this seems to be the case according to official statements.
How do you feel about the UK PSN being down for maintenance a lot longer? Do you think this start and end time could have been planned a lot better? You can see a list of PS4 error codes that might be experienced during the outage today within this article.
