Reason number 103232 why Sony is shit..


It took them 3 years of arm twisting to do something they should of done years ago when this happened.

Hmm, I wonder if I can claim some free games even though I didn't own a sony console well after 2011.
>>

>>
>>254587141
>tfw I missed it because I didn't realize there was an expiration date on the free games
>>
>>254587141
But they didn't give away enough free games!
>>
$15m from a shitty company already bleeding money. Can we just put a bullet in it and be done already?
>>
Holy shit, that happened in 2011?

Where has time gone?
>>
tell me more about these free games
>>
So I'm getting 3 months of free PS+?

cool

They already gave people free games as an apology, and this is just shills squeezing what they can out of the settlement.

Well what the fuck were you expecting?

I remember when they gave everyone free PS+ and free games from the whole PSN fiasco, I ended up getting Infamous, LittleBigPlanet, and like 3 months of PS+

Are people still honestly butthurt about that PSN attack? It's not like they actually took anything of importance considering that they had credit card information but it was all encrypted anyways.

>>254587565
I'm surprised they didn't target Target

Man what a shitty company. People will defend Sony for getting hacked too even though they didn't have the proper security in the first place and then decide to tell everyone a month after the breach. Great communication on there part.
>>
>>254586783
I was happy with how they gave everyone a choice of a few games before. LBP ended up being one of my favorite games of the gen and I'm not sure I would have ever bought it myself.

I was actually more disappointed with Sony in 2012, after losing Butler they didn't advertise shit, which meant that Starhawk, the Vita and other games that released that year bombed when they would have sold great

Man how did starhawk ever turn out? I loved the shit out of warhawk when I first got my ps4, and mostly drove around in tanks or shot shit out of the sky with rocket launchers. Was glorious.

So was MAG for the first month or two I played as a HMG weilding, healing support with anti-tank mines and rocket lawnchairs. Good times.

>Claims made by those who didn't participate in PlayStation's "Welcome Back" package — a program in which Sony offered PSN members free games as thanks for their loyalty after the security breach — will be honored on a first-come, first-serve basis, subject to an aggregate cap of $6 million. Claimants will be able to choose two separate benefit options or two instances of one PSN benefit option.

>Those who did participate in the "Welcome Back" package will be eligible to receive one game benefit, a theme benefit or a PlayStation Plus subscription benefit. Participants will also be honored on a first-come, first-serve basis to an aggregate cap of $4 million.

Going to be a mad rush, I already got my welcome back package, if they're offering a theme as an equivalent option I can only imagine what shit games they're planning on giving.

If this had happened to MS they wouldn't give people shit. Sony handed out free things because they were apologizing, not because they were forced to.

They should put Wild Arms 3 and Dark Cloud on the PSN, that's what they should do

Wipeout HD was worth it.

Best thing because I had just bought my PS3 when it happened.
>>
>>254590487

Only people who didn't cash in their chips to get a free game back in 2011.

so only the stupidest of the stupid because the fine print in >>254590843 indicates they'll likely get jack of shit. (or $4.50 in credit)

If you were calm and rational and accepted their welcome back package, you get another free game or PS+.

Xbox has gotten security breaches a number of times. The thing is that Microsoft has security research and defensive team for this shit. They shut down the security breach pretty fast rate, and learn from the experience.

Sony is still new to the internet online services business. So when they first got hack, it's likely that they had no idea how to deal with a disaster of that scale.

Um. They gave us free stuff back when it happened dude. I got five free games and 30 days of PS+ when PSN finally came back up. They even apologized publicly. Twice. Once on video and once at the following E3 where Jack himself got up and apologized to everyone.

Seriously. This was settled ages ago.
>>
>>254591259
Meanwhile microsoft has swept dozens of attacks under the rug and it barely makes news. Why? Because unlike Sony, Microsoft never comes out and apologizes for it. Funny how doing the right thing attracts more flack than hiding the fact that your security sucks like Microsoft.
