Sony makes up for the downtime of PSN with 5 days extension

Sony made its official apology with the announcement of a free 5-days extension to be made available for all Playstation Plus users in addition to a 10 percent discount on selected store items soon.

“Since access to PlayStation Network was impacted during the holidays, we wanted to show our appreciation for your patience by offering all PlayStation Plus members that had an active membership or free trial on December 25th a membership extension of five days,” wrote Sony

“The extension will be automatically applied, so no action is necessary to receive the extension. We will post additional information here on the blog when the extension becomes available. If your membership or trial ends before the extension is available, you will receive five days of Plus to enjoy once the extension becomes available (we will notify you when). In addition, sometime this month we will announce that for a limited time, we will be offering a 10 percent discount code good for a one-time discount off a total cart purchase in the PlayStation Store as a thank you to ALL PSN members.

“The discount can be used towards great content available on PS Store including blockbuster new releases, award winning indie games, game add-ons and season passes, and an enormous selection of TV and Movies.”

PSN and Xbox Live networks were hacked in the holidays preventing access to online features and multiplayer for a couple of days. A group called Lizard Squad adopted the attack that was later halted after MEGA founder Kim Dotcom’s free subscriptions offer in return for leaving the networks alone.
