Playstation Network compensation for Holiday downtime

2 posts in this topic

The massive DDoS attack by cybergang Lizard Squad left gamers without access to the PlayStation Network during this past Christmas holiday and as an apology Sony is providing a five day extension to PlayStation Plus subscribers and a 10% off code for the PlayStation Store to all users.

PS Plus subscribers who had an active membership or trial on December 25 will be eligible for the extension, which will be automatically applied to accounts. If your PS Plus subscription ends before the extension is applied, you will still receive five days of PS Plus.

The 10% off code is a one-time discount off the total cart purchase of anything from the PlayStation Store.

 

At least we're getting something for our troubles.

Hmmm, I'd of preferred a free game of my choice but I guess this will do. Kinda sucked having a 3 day weekend over Christmas and not being able to do anything besides watch netflix on my damn playstation.

      Uncharted 4 is $20. I just bought it. I might have to put Mass Effect on the back burner.

      The new PlayStation 4 firmware update will include external HHD support for game installation. Finally. I honestly didn't realize the original PS4s even had USB 3. They are also finally adding custom wallpapers via screenshots. About damn time. The wallpapers in the online store are complete garbage. I'd still prefer to use my own .jpg files like on the PS3, but modders used that feature as a way to hack the system which is why we never got the functionality in PS4. Using a screenshot is completely fine with me.

      For only $150 the Hori’s Tactical Assault Commander (TAC) Pro will give everyone on ps4 a huge advantage with mouse and keyboard controls. According to the box art of the product it is officially licensed by Sony and it's being sold at Gamestop and amazon. But if this is actually officially licensed then why doesn't Sony just allow keyboard and mouse input directly to the console so people don't have to pay $150?

      At least we'll finally be able to organize our games. I don't swap between playing alot of games so it hasn't bothered me before but it has always looked completely disorganized to me.
