PlaystationPlus.jpgEarly this month (January 2016) the PlayStation Network was down for about a day.  To me it is not that big of a deal since it happens from time to time.  However if you ever go online and read some of the comments some people write then these things happen they loose minds.  With that said Sony all ways compensates in some way.  The other day received an email saying, “Due to the recent PlayStation®Network interruption we are giving you a 1-DAY extension to your PlayStation®Plus membership.  Please redeem the following voucher code by March 31, 2016, 11:59 PM PST”,  Below that were was a code to in the PSN Store.  Thought that was pretty nice.  So you are a PlayStation Plus member check you email for a code.  Proved you had an active account on January 4, 2016.

PlayStation4.jpgIf you are a PlayStation or Xbox owner you might has know that this past Christmas you will not able to get online.  This was because there was a denial of service attack.  While this was a pain to some it wasn’t too bad for myself.  Since you can still play your games just not online.  Sony knows this pissed off a lot of people.  So they are compensating users.  You can read all about it on their blog > here.  In short if you were PlayStation Plus member or on a free trail on December 25, 2014 they are extending your membership by five days.   All so later in the month, “we will be offering a 10 percent discount code good for a one-time discount off a total cart purchase in the PlayStation Store as a thank you to all PSN members.”  This all sounds good to me.  Am pretty sure others will be still pissed off.

The Tester 2

Watched the first episode of The Tester 2.  It is much better than last year.   Some  of the “cast” are not very smart.  Don’t want to give any way since if you are reading this you might not have see it yet.  But I will say if you are going on a show put on by Sony and is about games maybe you should play one and learn about the games they make.  I think and hope this year will be better.  From the previews there looks like a lot of fighting and crying.  Some might find that fun or just lame.

The PlayStation Network’s The Tester is coming back for a second season.  The first season was pretty good.  I hope they up production values this time around.  Not saying they were bad just felt a big rushed.  Of the 12 new cast some of they look like some really “winners”.    I watched some of their videos and wow some of the people do not stand a change of winning.  It show will start airing some time this fall.

TheTester Watched the first episode of The Tester.  The Tester is a new reality type TV show on the Playstation Network.   The show has 11 people competing to be a Playstation game tester.  Like every reality show the play some kind of a game or do a challenge.  Who ever is the worst will most likely be kicked out by the judges.  It is not ever original but what ever.  It is free on the Playstaion Network.  I do believe there will be 8 episodes.

PSN Card

psn card I picked up a $20 PSN card today (Oct 22, 2009).  I have never planed or thought about buying some DLC for my PS3.  But I heard that there is a 10 song pack of Queen songs for Rock Band coming out today.   So I had to give it a shot.  I have not played Rock Band in awhile.  Once I try it out, I’ll post an update.
