Here's What Sony Is Offering To Make Up For PlayStation Network Downtime
Sony extending PlayStation Plus memberships by five days and offering a 10-percent PlayStation Store discount.
Sony on Thursday announced details about what it plans to offer the millions of PlayStation users affected by the recent PlayStation Network woes, which started Christmas Day and lasted for around three days. In a post on the PlayStation Blog titled "A Holiday Thank You," Sony Network Entertainment VP Eric Lempel said Sony plans to "show our appreciation" by doing the following.
PlayStation Plus Membership Extension -- Anyone who had an active membership or free trial on December 25 will receive a membership extension of five days. This extension will be applied automatically. In the event that your membership or trial ends before the extension becomes available, you'll still receive the five extra days of Plus.
10-Percent PlayStation Store Discount -- Sony will offer a 10-percent discount code to all PlayStation Network users that is good for a one-time discount of your total PlayStation Store purchase. Sony will announce more details about this offer later this month.
"Thanks again to all our loyal PlayStation fans and welcome to our newest console owners," Lempel said. "Wishing you all a very happy holiday."
