Sony to Extend PS Plus Subscriptions Following PSN Outage

Sony has promised to extend PS Plus and PS Now subscriptions for existing users following the PSN outage that knocked Sony's game network offline on Monday.

Writing on the official PlayStation Twitter account, Sony thanked users for their patience while the company worked to restore the network. It added that players should "stay tuned for details on PS Plus, PS Now, and video rental extensions." At the time of writing, it isn't clear how long Sony will extend users subscriptions for. After the major Christmas Xmas 2014 outage, which dragged on for nearly a week, Sony offered users a five-day extension to their PlayStation-related subscriptions.
