Yesterday’s extended PlayStation Network service interruption will not affect your running subscriptions’ balance.


The PlayStation Network went offline for ten hours yesterday all across the world. Users couldn’t access the store on PS4, PS3, or Vita, and were unable to play any games that relied on a server connection.

Although the service is now back online, Sony never said what caused the outage. The platform holder did however promise to reimburse those of us with PlayStation Plus and PlayStation Now subscriptions, in addition to those who had movies or TV shows rented through the store.

Sony took to twitter to confirm users will receive subscription extensions, and promised more details soon.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
