On one of the biggest shopping days of the year the PlayStation Network code redemption service is offline. Which means if you have a code to unlock exclusive content for a game or maybe even a free game download you will not be able to redeem them. This wouldn’t be to much of a problem, if Sony didn’t have a system launch in Europe and Australia the same day. Adding insult to injury many retailers, online and brick and mortar, were selling a year of PlayStation Plus for $29.99 down from its usual $49.99.
I personally had the misfortune of finding this out first hand. Unfortunately, there is no word on when these features will be back up and running but it should hopefully be back once the launch weekend is behind us.
