Sony Online Entertainment has already said it plans a "make-good" for D.C. Universe Online and Free Realms subscribers on the PS3. What about the rest of the 77 million PSN account holders?
Sony is "currently evaluating ways to show appreciation for your extraordinary patience as we work to get these services back online," said Patrick Seybold, the top spokesman for Sony Computer Entertainment America.
The answer was in a followup Q&A about the weeklong PlayStation Network outage, expected to last at least two weeks. Other answers: Download histories, friends lists and settings will not be affected by the downtime, PlayStation Plus cloud saves will be retrievable, and any trophies earned in single-player offline play during the outage will be awarded when
the WOPR PSN comes back on line and they can be synced with the server.
