Following the disruptive issues that plagued PSN during the Christmas break, Sony have announced that they will be extending people’s Playstation Plus subscriptions by five days as compensation. This extension will be automatically applied to subscribers in Europe and North America.
Here is the full statement released by Sony:
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. The extension will be automatically applied, so no action is necessary to receive the extension. We will post additional information here on PlayStation.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 Sony will be offering up a one time use 10% discount code, that is valid for buying the latest games as well as new blockbuster movies and Indie games.
