    Sony offers free playstation games

    so i came home yesterday and my brother told me that since the playstation network was down for so long sony decided to give every ps3 owner (at least thats what i heard) 2 free games (from a few selected titles). i got Wipeout HD (HIGHLY recommended) and Dead Nation (havent tried yet). other games that i heard were offered were inFamous and Little Big Planet. I think it was a good move on sony's part to make up (partially, at least) for the damage done by Anonymous (the hacker group responsible for the attack).

    I like how they gave away games that pretty much every PS3 owner already owns that are going for $20 new in a store. The only thing I downloaded was the Dead Nations, and my PSP is modded so there was no point to the PSP games.

    Also, Qriocity sucks. Aren't they giving out a free movie also? Oh yay I get the month of PS+ I missed from the month or so the network was down.

    Sony sucks with apologies, and considering they made one of the worst ones in history, you't think they'd be a little more generous.

    In order to qualify for this content, you'll need to have had a PSN account as of April 20, when the service went down. Once the deal goes live, you'll have 30 days to download your games from the PlayStation Store.
    While the post was up, it showed that users will get to select two of the following PS3 games: LittleBigPlanet, Infamous, Wipeout HD/Fury, Ratchet and Clank: Quest for Booty, and Dead Nation. Those with PSP accounts will also be able to select two of the following: LittleBigPlanet, ModNation Racers, Pursuit Force, and Killzone Liberation. (Germany will have a different selection for both platforms that removes the more violent games.)

    I'd prefer a promise to never again sue homebrew hackers like geohot and to work transparently and effectively on fixing their obvious security deficiencies... but I realize that is never going to happen.

    For now I predict they will continue their security by lawyer fail journey and watch as their servers crumble under the deluge of attacks they have so far failed to defend against.

    Not to mention that most PSN users probably had credit card info and all manner of stuff stolen- but yeah, free games, whoo.
    I had to do it.

    Sony kept everyone's information in plain text, I doubt they'd do anything intelligible to improve their image at this point. They haven't been making the brightest decisions these past few years.
