Sony Says Sorry to PSN Users With Free PS Plus and Discounts

If you were lucky enough to get a PlayStation shaped treat at Christmas, your joy may have been short-lived as a major DDoS attack on the PlayStation network left millions unable to join multiplayer games or even download their digital titles.

This was hardly an ideal situation for PlayStation, who worked all through the holidays to bring services back online and did a decent job of keeping gamers informed. But they're also keen to show that their very, very sorry for the outage, and have outlined the gifts for gamers by way of an apology.

For anyone who had a PS Plus account on the 25th of December, they'll receive an extra 5 days added onto their current subscription, which should happen automatically at the end of the current period. This is also offered to those who were in the middle of a free trial, but the value for those who have already bought a year of the service is pretty meagre. Also, it's not clear what happens in the event that you didn't manage to activate your PS Plus on Christmas Day.

PlayStation is also set to give every user of PSN a code for 10 percent off a total cart purchase on their digital store - which is a decent deal but still hardly ground-breaking.

We don't yet know when these rewards will be rolled out, we'll let you know when we do.
