Gamers found themselves without the Playstation Network on Christmas Day due to a denial-of-service attack that knocked out the PSN for PS4, PS3 and PS Vita.

Now in response, Sony has announced they are offering a PSN discount and extension for users.

Sony posted on their blog that as a "Holiday Thank You," they want to show their appreciation for everyone's patience by offering all Playstation Plus members that were affected on December 25th a membership extension of five days, which will automatically be applied.

In addition, Sony has announced that sometime this month for a limited time, they will be offering a 10 percent discount code good for a one-time discount off the total cart purchase in the PS Store, which will be available for all PSN members.

Back in 2011, Sony also offered free games and discounts following a similar attack as well as settling class-action lawsuits.

Regarding XBox Live, which also went down this Holiday season due to the same cyber attacks, but recovered quicker than Sony, it's unknown if Microsoft will follow Sony's lead.
