PSN Back Up, Sony Will Extend Plus And Now Subscriptions

If you couldn't sign into the PlayStation Network on Monday, you weren't the only one.

A worldwide outage meant users couldn't do much of anything for that 24-hour period and now, Sony has issued an apology.

As the company stated at the PlayStation Twitter page, they plan to extend PS Plus and PS Now subscriptions for existing users, as a thank you for being patient while Sony restored the Network. They don't say exactly how long these extensions will be but it probably won't be for more than a day or two.

Thanks for your patience today - stay tuned for details on PS Plus, PS Now, and video rental extensions.

At the end of 2014, the PSN was down for a good four days, and Sony responded by granting five-day extensions on PlayStation-related accounts for users. You should be able to log in to the PSN today, by the way.

I can imagine the millions of gamers that were furious they couldn't play online with their buddies.

These things do not affect me at all because the majority of games I play are offline.

I actually see no reason for Sony to do another huge giveaway for just 1 day's loss of being down.

But on the flipside of the coin.....
if Sony's giving away the house, then maybe they should've done something for those who didn't have PS+, like give the rest of us 1 free month(and the + to that for Sony is that way they'll probably get a lot more full paying + sign-ups once the freebie ended).

Just my 2 cents(and I'll be wanting change back from that)

Here in Canada, we got rid of manufacturing pennies 2 years ago since making them cost more than the value they hold. If you pay cash now, we round 1 or 2 pennies down to zero and 3 or 4 pennies up to a nickel. So everything centswise is divisible by 5 (unless paying in something other than cash).

So here, you'd probably want to offer your 3 or more cents. ;)

Underdog, HA!

Thanks......

and once you ever step on U.S. soil, you're hired as my personal financial advisor.

BTW, I don't like how Canadians are charged the average of $3 more than us just for one of our paperback books that I read a ton of, that just sucks!

I wish there was a way I could send the ones I've read freight-free over to whomever wanted them. Right now I have to lean them against the trash dumpster's fence so hopefully my of the many tenant's here will see them & pick them up to read. But unfortunately, if the maintanence workers see them first, they toss them right in the dumpster, so it's always a sorry cat & mouse game for me

LOL! Just wait until you see how much we pay for games now that our dollar is taaaaanking!

($79.99 or $89.99 for a new game now! UGH! It's getting close to the SNES days... I remember buying Super Mario RPG for like $110 or something after tax!)

Holy hell,
Those game prices are absolutely horrible.

I'm glad that I only visited your country & after much self-debate while there, I decided not to move there as it was just way too cold there and had to wear a heavy coat(even though it was only late July).

BTW, I stayed in Montreal, & extended my stay for an extra 3 weeks for Expo 67, & loved the whole area, plus the underground city & mall, McGill University, & especially that World's Expo, all great stuff)

That's awesome! I've never lived near Montreal myself, but I've been there a ton. It's about an 8 hour drive mostly north of where I currently live in London, Ontario. We're just 2 hours from Detroit, and temperature wise it's pretty similar to that I guess. Actually, if you've ever been to Niagara Falls area, that's pretty much what it's like here. Before that I grew up on the East Coast in Nova Scotia. Weather there is just crazy unpredictable. I remember in grade 12, we had 2 days of school cancelled in a row for being too cold. (was like -40 something which is the same in Fahrenheit as it is Celsius) but then the day we went back to school, it was above freezing. Just crazy weird.
