Put your life on pause – Sony’s PlayStation Store discount is on this weekend

Hey, if Sony wants to sell you games at a discount, no reason to say no, right? So remember to log on to your PlayStation store and forget about resisting the offers, available only on this weekend.

The company’s promised a 10 per cent discount off all of its PlayStation Store purchases over those three days, in an attempt to thank its fans for their loyalty. Plus, it's actually a great way to start off the year. for you to have a great start to the New Year.

But that’s not all that led to this sale – it’s also part of Sony’s apology for the outrage that occurred during the holiday season. Basically, there was an extended PSN downtime for multiple days after Christmas as a result of denial-of-service attacks on the network by the Lizard Squad hacker group.
