Sony Gives 5 Days of PS+ As Compensation for PSN Downtime

by on January 2, 2015

You might have noticed that PSN was unavailable at some points over the past few weeks, most notably for most of Christmas Day. This was due to a cyber attack from a notorious hacking group, who made the service unusable for much of the main holiday period.

To compensate those who could not access PSN over the holidays Sony have announced on the PS Blog that they will be giving anyone who had a active PS+ membership or trial on December 25th five free days of PS+. This will be added to your account automatically at an unspecified point in the near future.

For those of you who don’t have PS+ you haven’t been forgotten, as all PSN users will be given 10% off a single purchase in the PlayStation store. Exact details of when this will be available have not been specified although it will be some point in January.

Is this fair compensation for not being able to access PSN on one of the busiest days of the year? Let us know in the comments below.
