Now that Sony has finally begun restoring their PSN service they’re beginning to make amends with the millions of gamers who were digitally r*ped when their service was hacked nearly four weeks ago. Sony is offering all PS3 and PSP owners 2 full free games for each platform in an attempt to repair their image. They’re also going to give all PSN users 30 days of free access to Playstation Plus, and 60 free days to P+ members who already pay for the service. If that’s not enough they’re also offering a free movie rental, and free access for a limited time to their online music service.
Sony should never be forgiven for what happened to all of their trusting customers personal data, but I have to applaud them for their efforts to restore good faith. They’re definitely making some solid moves to show how grateful they are that gamers even want to play on their service. I would imagine that most PS3 gamers were thankful just to have the PSN restored, so the fact that Sony is offering some hefty rewards for gamers to continue using their services is one of the most clever PR moves I’ve ever seen. I have to give Sony a thumbs up for this decision even if some of the free games have been out for many years. If you are a PSN member make sure to check out all of the free sh*t that you can choose from below. You’ve been thinking that this is a pretty cool move on Sony’s part as long as your CC wasn’t taken on a spending spree by some identity thieves…
