Sony is giving some extra time to any PlayStation Plus subscriber who was impacted by the holiday 2014 denial of service attacks that kept owners of the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PS Vita consoles from playing online.
In a post on the official PlayStation blog, Sony states that any PlayStation Plus member who had an active account on December 25 will get five extra days on their membership. Sony added:
The extension will be automatically applied, so no action is necessary to receive the extension. We will post additional information here on PlayStation.Blog when the extension becomes available. If your membership or trial ends before the extension is available, you will receive five days of Plus to enjoy once the extension becomes available (we will notify you when).
In addition, Sony plans to offer a special sale on the PlayStation Network later in January where all users can save 10 percent off a one-time total cart purchase in the PlayStation Store.
