Sony’s Apologetic “Welcome Back” Gift

Sony have announced recently that once PSN becomes online, they will be offering a sort of “Welcome Back” gift as they kept saying to award all PSN members for their patience with all the Sony issues with the hacking and detail stealing. Full report below:

“While there is no evidence at this time that credit card data was taken, the company is committed to helping its customers protect their personal data and will provide a complimentary offering to assist users in enrolling in identity theft protection services and/or similar programs. The implementation will be at a local level and further details will be made available shortly in each region.

The company will also rollout the PlayStation Network and Qriocity “Welcome Back” program, to be offered worldwide, which will be tailored to specific markets to provide our consumers with a selection of service options and premium content as an expression of the company’s appreciation for their patience, support and continued loyalty.

Central components of the “Welcome Back” program will include:

  • 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.

Additional “Welcome Back” entertainment and service offerings will be rolled out over the coming weeks as the company returns the PlayStation Network and Qriocity services to the quality standard users have grown to enjoy and strive to exceed those exceptions.”

This is kinda a desperate scheme to make PS3 owners stay loyal to Sony, trying to ease their suffering on the information stealing. PSN will re-boot and re-open some point this week but will be limited service, probably for players to alter their details.

I knew that Sony would offer a 30-day free trial of PSN Plus to non-Plus members once PSN comes back online and it’s even better that current Plus members will get a further month extension but will this make you forgive Sony I wonder….
