Sony outs PS Home Welcome Back package
Sony is offering users of its Playstation Network (PSN) £65 worth of freebies in compensation following the infamous hackings which crippled the consumer electronics giant's online gaming system for almost a month
Sony has just offered up full details of its PS Home ‘Welcome Back’ package. The offer, which is up for grabs from today, is said to be worth £65 and is part of Sony’s ongoing attempts to make peace with users after its Playstation Network was hacked and users' personal information was stolen.
PS Home users can head to the Home Square now and snag freebies which include an anime style apartment, anime themed clothing, a Paris modern office furniture set, a Midway Green ticket worth 50 plays and a selection of virtual clothing. The complete list can be found on the official PlayStation blog.
Sony says the free offer will run until 28 July, when the package will become available for the aforementioned RRP.
Sony’s Playstation Network was hacked into in April, with hackers making off with the personal details of some 77 million users. In a further blow to the Japanese giant, another breach saw the details of 24.8 million gamers stolen from its Sony Online Entertainment MMO service, including some credit and debit information.
After three weeks, PSN officially went back online on May 15, with Sony bosses apologising for the hacking at E3 2011 in June.
