The Playstation Network has been down for what seems like forever, though it has been about a month. Well, upon it’s triumphant (right?) return, they will be giving all those who suffered through the loss some free stuff. Honestly we should all be thankful we are getting anything at all. I know you couldn’t play your precious Call Of Duty which you don’t pay to play online. The only deserving ones are those who pay for the PS+ service.
They will be welcoming everyone back officially quite soon, and that’s when you will get a crack at your free stuff. The free items you will be lucky enough to receive are for the United States and Canada only. However those in EUROPE or LATIN AMERICA can read about their packages. Now head past the break to check out your free shit! READ MORE
For those who don’t already know, a little over a week ago the Playstation Network was hacked. What does that mean for you? Well the hackers now have all of your information. Whatever payment device you use to make your PSN purchases, your name, address, all that good stuff. They now have it.
So, keep an eye on that credit or debit card, maybe even consider canceling it, or asking for a card number change. Sony is now (finally) deciding to beef up their security. You can read about it HERE, and look below the article in the “see also” area for connecting articles. (A QUICK UPDATE FROM THE SEXY ADAM DODD) While our personal info was taken when PSN was hacked, all credit card info was encrypted. So while it’s still possible for hackers to find a way to get it, you probably don’t need to cancel your cards.
