In a recent entry on the DC Universe Online official Facebook page, Sony Online Entertainment have started to outline what compensation they will be offering players who were left out of pocket when the PlayStation Network went down almost two weeks ago.
“Impacted players will receive 30 days subscription credit plus one day for each day the service was unavailable. Also every impacted player will receive a Batman-Inspired mask appearance item.”
We can assume that by “impacted players” SOE is referring to those whose subscriptions were live when the service buckled, not to those who simply own a copy of the game. A 30-day pass is worth roughly a tenner, and with the exclusive Batman helmet thrown into the mix, it’s actually looking like a very sweet deal for disgruntled DCUO patrons.
However, the recent security breach and SOE’s plans to create all-new super servers raises concerns as to whether DCUO’s near-monthly content update will be delayed. It’s likely we will be updated when the PlayStation Network returns to working status.
