PlayStation Store games and add ons have been discounted by 10% as an apology to users affected by the holiday outage.


To take advantage, users will have to cash in a code for discount coupon on any of the PS Store frontages – web, PS3 or PS4 (if you only have a Vita or PSP, use the web store).

The code will be offered via the European and North American PlayStation Twitter accounts. The Japanese code has already been distributed – 8PLLN4L3DQ is the sequence you need.

You can use the code on anything bar PlayStation Plus subscriptions, Music Unlimited and movie rentals.

The discount runs January 23 through 26; visit the European and US PlayStation Blogs for more details.

In case you missed it, the PSN was down for an extended period over the holidays, apparently thanks to a DDoS attack.

Thanks, Gematsu.
