PS4 Voucher Compensation Continues
The PlayStation 4 recently launched in Europe to a slew of issues, eventually forcing Sony to turn the PSN service off completely to fix said problems. Sony has confirmed they will be increasing the availability of voucher redemption, which was disabled at launch, for users in Europe. An update on the PlayStation Blog reads:
We have been working on the PSN service roll-out throughout the weekend and are continually increasing the availability of the voucher redemption functionality.
The next phase of the roll out is to introduce the What’s New Activity Feed and Live Item in the Content Information Screen, which we will be able to update you on tomorrow. Thank you for your continued patience as we manage PSN to restore full service.
Voucher redemption was one of the many features completely disabled to ensure a smooth launch, this was to ease the burden on the PSN servers during the European console release.
Sony also turned off the What’s New Activity feed, causing a little commotion. But the biggest issues users had were with the deactivation of PS Plus vouchers being redeemable and PS3 to PS4 upgrade codes being turned off.
Thanksgiving has passed us by and a number of deals were put up for the holiday on the PSN, with PS Plus members receiving extra bonuses. Many users were unable to partake in this sale.
Fear not! Sony is working on the issues and will make amends with its fan base.
