Sony has Announced Five Free Days of PS Plus Subscription

By   /   Jan 1, 2015

Sony has announced five days of free PS Plus time for all subscribers.

The announcement comes right after the recent series of DDoS attacks by self-proclaimed hacker group The Lizard Squad. Threats made against the PlayStation Network earlier in December came to light when services were crippled throughout Christmas.

The cyber attacks left players unable to play online, download updates, and message friends. The usage of pretty much every feature incited frustration.

Today, Sony posted a ‘Thank You’ note on its blog to wish a happy new year to all and also bring everyone up to date about the PlayStation Network. Services have smoothed out now, and the company will be looking to further try and make sure such incidents never happen again.

As a token of apology and for the inconvenience caused, all current PlayStation Plus members will be getting five extra days of subscription time. This includes those who are currently using a free trial that was included with their PS4.

Happy New Year! 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).

Additionally, a coupon for 10% off one digital purchase has also been included. This discount can be used toward content available on PS Store including movies, games, add-ons, season passes, and TV shows.
