Sony May Offer PS Plus Extensions To Compensate For PSN Outage Yesterday

That’s good enough for me.

Yesterday, PSN went down unexpectedly.

This sort of thing happens way more often with PSN- scheduled maintenance is more visible and problematic on PSN than it is on other networks, and in general, PSN seems to be more liable to attacks and downtime than Xbox Live or Steam seem to be. Yesterday’s outage, however, was nearly 12 hours of no PSN. With so many games now being online only, PSN sales going on, and multiple events that needed PSN to be online – such as Destiny‘s The Iron Banner, or the Black Ops 3 world championships – this made the outage seem more egregious than it would have otherwise. The fact that we are now paying for PSN also didn’t help things.

To Sony’s credit, they said they will compensate users for the downtime suffered yesterday. On the official Twitter, they asked PSN users to stay tuned for details of a possible extension of their PS+ subscriptions, which is a fair enough compensation, in my opinion.

    From the looks of it, PSN was DDOSed. Paying for a service won’t stop DDOS attacks. And PSN isn’t more liable to attacks than Steam or Xbox Live. I think that is a common missconception spread by fanboys who constantly claim it is without proof but they repeat it until people accept it as fact through proof by assertion.

    According to reports, Xbox Live went down about four different occasions in December with at least one outage lasting six hours while PSN remained unscathed during December aside from the email delays on Christmas. Sometimes services get attacked more than others.

    At least they’re compensating. Microsoft should do the same. But of course, that may require that people actually stop giving Microsoft a pass when Xbox Live goes down. And it would probably require that websites such as this one actually report Xbox Live outages instead of only reporting PSN outages.

      “Sometimes websites don’t catch every bit of news on time.”
      Se how that works.

    • archfiendx

      I don’t see how that works because his point still stands. I never see Gamingbolt report when Xbox Live is down, even if they may be late.

    • Terminator

      Doesn’t surpsie me you don’t see how that works…since it doesn’t align with your fanboy agenda TrollBotMK1.

      Hey you even appear on that article.

    • archfiendx

      I may have forgot. That was almost a year ago. Xbox Live has gone down many times after April 13th 2015.

    • Terminator

      “I may have forgot” Like most things, but regardless of your short comings you just got rekt.

    • archfiendx

      lol No I haven’t. Your arguments don’t even make sense.

    • Terminator

      Yes I have, you are just to slow to understand them.

    • archfiendx

      No, because you’re not making relevant arguments to the point because you’re a looney and a rabid Xdrone.

    • Terminator

      I have been making relevant arguments that have shut down everyone one of your pathetic comments. 🙂

    • archfiendx

      No you haven’t.

    • Terminator

      Yes I have.

    • archfiendx

      No you haven’t. You don’t make relevant arguments that disprove anyone else’s points.

      It seems like I always see you following XbotMK1 around like you have a crush.

    • Terminator

      Yes I have. Every comment I have made has been relevant and has put you in your place. You are just to childish to understand them.
      More like XbotMK1, you, follow me around because his always on every article I go especially Xbox ones.

    • archfiendx

      You haven’t put anyone in their place. You’re just repeating yourself.

      You were beaten many times before so it seems like now you’re just trying to get pay back.

      You’re the one who replied to him you bellend.

    • Terminator

      Yes I have, I hav put you and all your accounts in their place time after time. You are just talking like always without saying anything relevant let alone a counter argument and damage controlling.

      Only beaten here has been you XbotMK1 and you keep trying to one up me but fail every time.

      I reply to you because you mention me or you are lying and someone needs to teach you a lesson, one I always do.

    • E.J457

      You’re trying way too hard and you fail.

    • Terminator

      3rd account TrollBotMK1? LOL at you telling me I am trying to hard…go look in a mirror 😉

    • archfiendx

      I think you’ve lost your mind.

    • Terminator

      Nah that would be you because of how many times I have made you look like a fool.

    • archfiendx

      No, you’ve been exposed as a hypocrite and a raging, rabid, Microsoft fanboy who defends Microsoft all over the place.

    • Terminator

      No, but you have been exposed by me countless times and others of using multiple accounts and being a PS Drone Corporate Slave Hypocrite Fanboy who lies and spreads sickening propaganda.

    • ShoNuff

      Most of the time there is an Xbox live outage it is not reported correctly and in fact is only affecting certain services and generally has no bearing on games. But way to spin a positive for PSN members into another complaint against Xbox. You’re really the worst troll I have ever seen

  • XbotMK1

    Sometimes websites don’t catch every bit of news on time.

  • Ben Dover Kuntz

    like a few extra hours on the ps+ that dont cost them a dime will repair the damage done. sonys arrogance at its best.

  • archfiendx

    I would have to say from my experience, PSN surpassed Xbox Live ever since 2013. Xbox Live has been playing catch up ever since.

  • E.J457

    Seems reasonable to me.

  • Herald of Gaben

    I think both should be free but if I had to pick, I would pick PSN over Xbox Live.

  • Xbox one 2econd gpu unlocking

    GAF has praised this as maintenance anyway.
