In light of yesterday’s outage, which brought PlayStation Network offline for close to 11 hours, Sony has hinted at plans to roll out extensions to PS Plus and PlayStation Now subscriptions as compensation for the unplanned downtime.
Word comes by way of the official PlayStation Twitter account, which thanked fans for their continued support, before asking those affected to stay tuned for further updates on those PS Plus, PS Now and video rental extensions. As the service begins to return to normal, Sony Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshida also took to Twitter to apologize for any inconvenience caused.
Thanks for your patience today – stay tuned for details on PS Plus, PS Now, and video rental extensions.

Not a moment too soon, either, what with January’s PS Plus offerings set to go live later today. Among the newcomers entering the Instant Game Collection are Grim Fandango Remastered, Dragon Age: Origins, and Medal of Honor: Warfighter.
Tell us, were you affected by the most recent PlayStation Network outage?
