The PlayStation Network went down yesterday and Sony has apologised for outage while also ensuring users don't lose out on their time

The PlayStation Network suffered an outage yesterday, with both the European and American versions remaining unresponsive for several hours. Sony was aware of the problem and it wasn't part of any kind of scheduled outage. This comes just a few short days after the service was targeted by hackers, leading to a long period of downtime over Christmas.

We can confirm that PSN is back up in Europe now and Sony has apologised for the issue. In addition, it seems like they're going to go the extra mile to keep their customers happy, by giving them back the time. That means PS Plus subscribers will get an extra day for free - which is a very nice thing indeed.

It also seems that if you've rented a movie that the outage time won't count against that purchase. Hopefully these extensions are all applied without any further issues.
