    Free PSN stuff when its back online

    As many of you already know, PSN has been down and Sony may have lost all your credit card details etc.

    As a way of saying sorry for the balls up, Sony have stated on their blog they will be rolling out some free stuff as a sort of "welcome back"

    "• Each territory will be offering selected PlayStation entertainment content for free download. Specific details of this content will be announced in each region soon.
    • All existing PlayStation Network customers will be provided with 30 days free membership in the PlayStation Plus premium service. Current members of PlayStation Plus will receive 30 days free service.
    • Music Unlimited powered by Qriocity subscribers (in countries where the service is available) will receive 30 days free service."

    Nothing specific yet but free stuffs always good!

    Don't you lose the free stuff once your subscription runs out?

    Yes you won't be able to keep those games, but will be getting something as yet unspecified to keep for good.

    Just hope it's not something I already have.

    should just have given us x amount of money on our account so we can get what we want

    Eagerly sitting at my PS3 to put new credit card details in....

    I look forward to getting the US stuff as i'm sure it'll be much better than what they give the UK.

    I'm sure you already knew that though.

    streets of rage 2 and beyond good and evil



    it will only be 20% off beyond good and evil

    At least that's the best SoR.

    Accepting any of these offers is acceptance of compensation... I am holding out for the class action against them.. Even if it is £100 each, it is better than nothing..

    Not too bothered that it has weather been glorious and finished off some games just waiting for my free stuff to go with my free online gaming once it is back up.

    Excellent. Having to cancel a credit card and change all passwords safe in the knowledge the personal details are currently being sold on the black market is all made up for by being given a free download of Kick Ass when the service returns.

    Thanks Sony, you're the best

    It added that there was no evidence credit card information was stolen, but urged users to “stay vigilant,” change other passwords and keep an eye on credit card statements.

    You might have been a bit more bothered if you paid for a + subscription. As it turns out Sony are giving back the days lost on a plus subs with some extra days free providing it does not take 30 days to sort out the online problems.

    Lets hope they offer difference free stuff for difference terertories.

    Becaause I have euro, US, HK and JP accounts!

    So you "asked" if it has been down for weeks on the 1st May, and then prove your point buy predicting the state of play in a months time?

    So if they omit any services, it will never be back up? Great thinking Batman.

    A guy in my work was telling me over the weekend that his card details have been used - It was a relatively new card which he said he had only used on the PSN and to take money out from cash machines.

    Whoever used his card have managed to get a few O2 transactions authorised for low amounts and one bigger amount for something else.

    There was a transaction for a couple of thousand pounds which was declined as he didn't have the money, he wasn't even aware of it until the bank contacted him and he has now cancelled his card.

    Could purely be a coincidence that his details were stolen and used the same time as Sony were hacked but after receiving the Sony email he is rather convinced this is the cause.

    So they raided accounts to buy o2 credit. Doesn't follow.

    it follows that scammers try a few low amounts first then hit for bigger amounts.

    do u think the cod map pack will be free ( the new ones)?

    I am hoping that we get some Black Ops map packs, as that is one of the more popular games, it would please alot of people to offer map packs for free
