Last week, Sony announced to all PlayStation subscribers that there will be compensated for the outage during Christmas caused by a DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack during that period. As stated on the US PlayStation blog, users will be getting an extra 5 days to their PS Plus subscription. This little offering will be valid to full on member and even people who only have a free trial subscription. Nothing will have to be done for this, it will automatically be added to all members of the plan.
Also announced on the blog, Users will get a one-time 10% discount voucher good for one cart purchase, meaning you can buy anything you want on PSN and stick on this voucher to get a reduction. This will be for a limited time so when you hear the announcement, make sure to claim your stuff before it is too late.
Personally, I think it’s a nice little gesture from Sony because they probably lost tons of money during this period and gamers were left out of gaming due to the fact that almost all game require you to be connected to play. This is even more true if you have downloaded game because it authenticates the license every so often. If it was necessary? I don’t think so because it was not their fault and there wasn’t much they could have done about this attack. What do you guys think? You think it’s a good deal? Are you happy or made with this?
