Well this just sucks, no compensation from Playstation for where we all had our personal information and credit cards info stolen a few years back but US are getting a tonne of freebies.

 

http://www.gameplanet.co.nz/news/g53d180287e214/Sony-settles-PSN-outage-class-action-but-denys-wrong...

 

Sony has agreed to settle a class-action lawsuit that stems from the weeks-long outage of PlayStation Network in 2011, but it continues to deny that the data of its users was vulnerable.

"A proposed settlement has been reached in the class action lawsuits arising from the April 2011 criminal cyber-attacks on the PlayStation Network, Qriocity, and Sony Online Entertainment services," a Sony representative told Polygon.

"Information regarding the proposed settlement, which is subject to final approval by the Court, is available in the settlement agreement and other documents filed with the Court.

"While we continue to deny the allegations in the class action lawsuits, most of which had been previously dismissed by the trial court, we decided to move forward with a settlement to avoid the costs associated with lengthy litigation."

A letter from Sony to the media shared a similar sentiment.

“The Sony Entities deny any claims of wrongdoing in this case, and the settlement does not mean that the Sony Entities violated any laws or did anything wrong,” it reads.

Only those who live in the US stand to benefit from the lawsuit, which proposes that Sony offer US$15m worth of digital goods to users as compensation for the outage.

According to Sony, said goods may include:

  • payment equal to paid wallet balances
  • a free PS3 or PSP game, or three free PS3 themes, or a free 3-month subscription to PlayStation Plus
  • a free month of Music Unlimited for Qriocity accountholders who did not have a PSN account
  • US$4.50 in SOE Station Cash (amounts will be reduced proportionally if valid claims exceed US$4 million)
  • Identity Theft Reimbursement: if you had out-of-pocket charges due to actual identity theft, and have documentation proving that the theft was actually caused by the intrusion(s), you can submit a claim for reimbursement up to US$2,500.

The PlayStation 3 games on offer are Dead Nation, infamous, LittleBigPlanet, Super Stardust HD, and Rain.

The PSP games on offer are LittleBigPlanet, ModNation Racers, Patapon 3, and Killzone Liberation.
