Sony has announced that it will be offering two free games -- from an unspecified choice of five -- to PlayStation Network members as part of its apology for the infamous PSN breach. PSP users will also have two games, from a list of four.
In addition, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe is looking at a way to offer some identity theft insurance for its users, following the announcement that Sony America would be doing so. According to SCEE's Nick Caplin, the process has been difficult due to countries within Europe having all sorts of different laws. The company hopes to have all PSN users in Europe protected before the PSN comes back.
The free game offering is pretty cool, but I still remember the sour taste Microsoft left when it gave Undertow away. Here's hoping that the likes of Rag Doll Kung Fu aren't on the list.
