All PlayStation Plus members will be given an additional five days subscription time, along with a 10% discount coupon.

Remember how Lizard Squad stole Christmas by launching DDOS attacks on PSN and Xbox Live? Well, I've got some good news for those of you who sat there frustrated on Christmas morning trying to get your boxes to work. Well, for those of you who had Sony boxes, at least.

Sony has announced that as an apology for the downtime, all PSN subscribers will be getting a 10% discount coupon for the network in the near future, and all PlayStation Plus members will be given an additional five days of free time on their subscriptions.

"Since access to PlayStation Network was impacted during the holidays, we wanted to show our appreciation for your patience by offering all PlayStation Plus members that had an active membership or free trial on December 25 a membership extension of five days," Sony stated in an official blog post.

"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."

As for the discount coupon, you'll be able to use it on all content available on the PSN store, including movies, games and DLC.
