PlayStation to extend PS Plus, PS Now and rentals in wake of yesterday’s outage

PlayStation Plus

Yesterday, the PlayStation Network went down for the first time this year. Yep, a few days in and the network went under. Sony never said what caused the drop in services, but it affected the network over all platforms.

Users were without online services for around 10 hours, all told, and that means some subscription time spread over PS Plus, PS Now and video rentals was lost. Sony took to Twitter to indicate plans for rectification.

Sony hasn’t announced how they plan to extend each service for affected users. I imagine the extensions won’t be major.

Although, if my PS Plus is extended by a whopping 10 hours, I don’t think I’ll notice. Video rental time, however? Sure, that’ll work.
