Earlier this month, the PlayStation Network was down for a good 24 hours.

That may not seem like much but people don't like it when their service disappears, and Sony issued an apology .

They said they'd offer an extension for PlayStation Plus subscribers, as well as members of other programs like PlayStation Now. Well, the company has been good to their word, as they're sending out the one-day Plus extensions today. This email has been received by lots of gamers and it includes a unique code for an extension credit, which must be redeemed by March 31, 2016 at 11:59 p.m. PST. The extension will be automatically applied to your existing membership; for you to be eligible, you had to have an existing Plus subscription on the date of the problem (January 4).

There was also a brief message: "Thanks for your patience during the service interruption." This email is just for Plus; we don't know when PlayStation Now members will receive their extension, but it'll probably be soon.
