Luck may be on your side. You may be eligible for a free game as a result of Sony Playstation class action lawsuit. If you remember back in 2011 Sony had a major breach of the Playstation Network affecting members globally, and disrupting service for a record amount of time. To be eligible for any of the digitized rewards there are a few stipulations that you must meet. One you must have had a PSN account at the time of the breach. The rewards consist of a free PS3 game, console themes, or 3 free months of Playstation Plus. Of course the option is always there to close your account and cash out your wallets. If you think you might be eligible, head on over to their website here. Once there just follow the instructions.
If you were one of the truly unlucky ones and can prove that you suffered identity theft as a result of the breach, you may be eligible for $2500.oo.
This class action lawsuit is only open to U.S. Citizens, even though the hack affected subscribers around the world.

Dead Nation (PS3)

Hacking of gaming consoles isn’t going to go away, as we know from the recent one we had over the holidays. Seems cyber attacks should be on the forefront of our minds. Watch your account, keep your password secure, and definitely watch your bank accounts.
