Sony posted a follow-up Q&A yesterday that carried a few bits of good news. I guess the news isn’t good, but it’s not as terrible as the news they’ve been revealing lately, so that’s a change for the better.
According to the post, all trophies, friend lists, settings, download history, and PSN+ cloud saves will be intact and available for all users once the network comes back.
In addition, Sony makes passing mention of a “goodwill gesture” that will be extended to Free Realms / DC Universe Online / PlayStation Network / Qriocity users to compensate for the downtime. They don’t give any hints as to what that will be, but merely state that they are “evaluating ways to show appreciation for your extraordinary patience” for the time being.
There’s also a curt “Thank you for your continued feedback” at the end, which made me giggle. I’m sure they’re loving the feedback right about now.
