Sony have announced via a blog post that all PSN users who had active or trial memberships during the recent outage brought on by recent attacks from hackers would be given some rewards for their patience and support.
The attacks which began December 24th left gamers without use of the service until December 29th and to make up for this Sony are offering their users a five day pass and a discount code:
“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, sometime this month we will announce that for a limited time, we will be offering a 10 percent discount code good for a one-time discount off a total cart purchase in the PlayStation Store as a thank you to all PSN members.”
No date has been as to when these rewards will be applied but we’ll keep you posted as soon as the information becomes available.
