Sony evaluating “goodwill gesture” for PSN users

With the PlayStation Network still down and seemingly no end in sight, Sony has begun to investigate ways they can say “We’re sorry!” to gamers.

The latest update on the PlayStation.Blog confirms that user’s download history, friends list, settings, Trophies and PlayStation Plus cloud saves will be unaffected by the network outage.

The update also revealed that Sony wants to provide a goodwill gesture to gamers for their patience in dealing with the PSN outage and while they’re not ready to announce what it is just yet, the company is currently evaluating several different options. Though they did say that DC Universe Online and Free Realms players would receive some kind of compensation for the downtime as part of Sony’s “make good” plan.
