PSN down for maintenance, times shows favoritism

On December 9, 2013 PSN will be down for maintenance for a period of 8 hours for PS3, PS4 and PS Vita users, and it clear looking at the times that this downtime shows favoritism. Gamers will not have access to the online service from December 9th at 16:00 to 00:00 GMT on December 10th.

Looking at these times we can see that PS3, PS4 and PS Vita users in the UK and Europe have not been thought about because this being the busiest time for online gaming.

It is easy to see that US gamers have been given preferential treatment because this PlayStation network downtime will not affect them as much.

Having said that, PlayStation Europe was the only ones to confirm this downtime on its Twitter page. This was confirmed about 40 minutes ago, and as yet there has been no update from its US counterpart, so maybe it is just a European maintenance schedule only?

Whatever way you look at it, this time still sucks if you are in the UK and we would have thought by now that Sony would have chosen a far better time to perform scheduled maintenance.

Update: It seems as though this downtime will be for US as well because gamers have already reported that PSN is already down, although it’s earlier than Sony said.
