ORIGINAL STORY 20/1/15 3.30pm: Attention PlayStation Network members: you can claim your 10 per cent 'sorry about Christmas' discount from Friday this week.

Sony isn't sorry that your Christmas was awful - that was granddad's fault. Sony's apologising because PSN was down for extended periods of festive time, so I looked stupid in front of my family because I couldn't get Netflix to work on PS4.

Oh don't be sad.

The PSN discount begins 9am "local time" 23rd January, according to the European PlayStation blog, and ends 9am local time 26th January. The code will be shared on the PlayStation Store and PlayStation Twitter feed.

"Simply use the promotion code for a one-time 10 per cent discount off eligible items in a total cart purchase in PlayStation Store on PS3, PS4 or via"

Note "eligible items"; "hundreds of thousands of items" are included - games, films, blah blah blah - but not necessarily everything will qualify. Subscriptions don't count, nor do pre-orders, and nor do transactions made on Vita, PlayStation TV or PSP.

Meanwhile, the five-day PS Plus subscription extension for members begins rolling out today. You'll get an email.
