In an effort to make up for the recent PlayStation Network outage, Sony will be offering all PlayStation Plus members a five-day extension on their memberships. Terming it as an "appreciation for your patience," the company said the extension will be available to all those who had an active membership or free trial on December 25th.

Sony said that if your membership or trial ends before the extension is available, you'll still be eligible for it. The extension will be automatically applied.

In addition, Sony will offer a 10 percent discount code good for a one-time discount off a total cart purchase in the PlayStation Store. You can use it toward content available on the PS Store, including games, season passes, add-ons, TV series, or movies.

Like the membership extension, there's no set date yet on when the discount will be made available though it's expected to happen sometime this month.

Both, The PlayStation Network and Microsoft's Xbox Live were targeted with a malicious distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack on Christmas Eve. A hacker group named Lizard Squad, that had pledged to take down the services on Christmas Day, took credit for the attack which lasted for about three days.
