Earlier in the day, Sony’s Kazuo Hirai and Sir Howard Stringer announced that they will be offering “identity theft protection” for those affected by the malicious attack on PlayStation Network. Now, the EU blog has confirmed that EU users will get similar protection, as well as more!
According to blog post, “PS3 owners will be offered 2 free games from a list five, as well as offering PSP users the opportunity to choose two games from a list of four.”
There’s no mention of what these games will be at this time, or if there will be any kind of restrictions in place – will owners of both consoles be allowed to claim 2 PS3 and 2 PSP games, or will there be some kind of limit?
Is this a per-console offering, or a per-user one? Furthermore, no details were given if there was any kind of restriction or cut-off to count as an “active” PSN user. Many people would agree that all PSN account details were compromised, regardless as to when the accounts were last used.
The blog stated that “We will let you know exactly what games are available very soon.”
