A few days ago I posted a news story about how Sony royally screwed up and allowed a bunch of hackers access to PSN users’ personal information. Today, Sony finally made some announcements regarding how they plan on making this up to their customers.
First things first, sometime this week Sony plans on restarting some on its online services. Gamers will so be able to log onto their PSN accounts allowing them to changed their passwords, chat with friends, play games online and even use PlayStation Home. Sony has also stated that they have added several layers of data protection and encryption including more firewalls and software monitoring which detects intrusions.
Aside from the basic security updates, Sony is also offering its users some apology gifts. The gifts include:
- “Selected PlayStation entertainment” content for free download; differs by region, details to be shared soon
- 30 days of free PlayStation Plus service to PlayStation Network users, and 30 days added free to existing PS+ members
- 30 days free Music Unlimited service for Qriocity subscribers
What do you guys think about this? Is this enough to make you want to trust Sony with your information again? Do you forgive them for messing up this bad? Let us know what you think with a comment below.
