Sony To Compensate Players For PlayStation Network's Downtime

As most of you probably noticed during the Christmas period, PlayStation Network and Xbox Live were targeted by hacking group Lizard Squad. This resulted in both services being unavailable for the large majority of users, which prevented players from playing online during these days.

With PlayStation Network now back and without any issues, Sony is looking to compensate all PSN users for the service outage.

Users that had an active PlayStation Plus subscription on the 25th of December, which also includes free trials, will have their subscriptions extended by five days. According to Sony, this five days extension will be automatically applied to everyone once it's available.

Players that didn't had an active PlayStation Plus subscription won't be left out of compensations. Sometime this month, Sony will also offer a 10% discount code to all PSN users that is good for a one-time discount off a total cart purchase in the PlayStation Store.

"Thanks again to all our loyal PlayStation fans and welcome to our newest console owners. Wishing you all a very Happy Holiday," said Sony.
