Sony has extended its Flash Sale and Holiday Sale following PSN issues that reared their head this month, PlayStation Store senior director Grace Chen announced today on the official PlayStation Blog.
The Flash Sale will be extended until Dec. 31, with the Sony Holiday Sale continuing on until Jan. 6. Sony’s Flash Sale was initially slated to end earlier yesterday, while the Holiday Sale was meant to last just four weeks beginning at the start of December.
You can take a look at all available sales here, which include Dragon Age: Inquisition, NBA 2K15, Destiny, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, FIFA 15, Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor and more at up to 75% off
PlayStation Network and some other gaming services were attacked over the holidays with artificially high levels of traffic designed to disrupt connectivity and online gameplay, Sony confirmed last week. This likely prevented your access to the network and its services.
PlayStation owners are experiencing “intermittent connectivity” to PlayStation Network, Sony confirmed on the PlayStation Knowledge Center.
These issues follow extended periods of downtime for PSN on and after Christmas Day last week. Both PSN and Microsoft’s Xbox Live went down on Dec. 25, after reportedly suffering DDoS attacks. It took multiple days for PSN to fully recover, with network issues persisting throughout the past weekend.
Sony has since tweeted a link to a PlayStation Knowledge Center page from the Ask PlayStation Twitter account. The page recommends that people try tweaking the MTU settings in their console’s network configuration if they’re having trouble accessing PSN.
