Free PlayStation Plus access

Sony is giving PSN users who were non-PlaySation Plus subscribers before the PSN downtime 30 days access to the service. PlayStation Plus includes free games, discounts, exclusives and added features such as online storage and automatic downloads.

As with the games above, go to the PlayStation Store and under the ‘Welcome Back’ section, select ‘PlayStation Plus: 30 Days Free’, and you’ll be given access to all of the benefits of PlayStation Plus. Note that this will not auto-renew and simply expires 30 days after activation.

Current Plus subscribers have an extra 60 days added to their existing subscription at no charge. For current Plus subscribers, no action is needed as the 60 days have automatically been added to their subscription.

Another additional 10 days will be added to their subscription in a few days’ time to make up for the extended downtime.
