Our friends over in Europe will have to suffer through a few hours of PSN downtime next week. PSN will be down in Europe on Monday from 6am until 9am GMT – that's 1am until 4am Eastern, in case you're one of those Europeans who keeps time that way. No judgment!

During the outage, the PlayStation Store and online account management settings on the PlayStation 3 and PSP will be inaccessible. The Vita, strangely, was not listed in the maintenance notice. The downtime should have no affect on your Trophy-gathering – they'll be reflected on your profile when the network is restored – and you should have no problem getting your early-morning online gaming fix.
