PlayStation Network Stories January 2, 2015


As many of you already know/experienced first hand, the PlayStation Network suffered outages over the holidays due to a denial-of-service attack courtesy of a malicious hacker group. The company’s VP of Sony Entertainment Network, Eric Lempel, announced that those affected by the downtime will be receiving a free extension to their PS Plus memberships. Anyone who had an active PlayStation Plus subscription (or free trial) on December 25th, 2014, will be receiving a free 5 day extension to their accounts.

The extension will automatically be applied at a later date, according to Lempel. Those with a trial or subscription that ends before the extension goes live will receive the bonus 5 days anyway.

On top of that, Sony is also handing out 10% discount codes “as a thank you to all PSN members.” The code will come available “sometime” this month and will be good for a one-time discount off a total cart purchase on everything from games and add-ons to TV shows, movies and more.

We will keep you posted on when the extension and discount codes go live, in the mean time you can check out our daily game roundups for all the best deals across all platforms.
