Sony Settles 2011 PSN Hacking Case


The final outcome of a massive hack of Sony's PlayStation Network in 2011 resulted in a legal settlement that could hold Sony liable for up to $15 million in damages, plus nearly $2.75 million in attorney fees.

According to the settlement agreement, Sony offers to users affected by the breach a free downloadable PS3 or PSP game; three PS3 themes; or a three-month subscription to PlayStation Plus. Users who took advantage of Sony's "Welcome Back" promotion back in 2011 can choose one of those benefits, while those who didn't get a free game back then can choose from two of the three benefits.

Sony has also agreed to pay up to $2,500 to each user who can show that their identity was compromised in a way that "more likely than not... directly and proximately resulted from the PSN Intrusion or the SOE Intrusion and not from any other source."

Users can get additional benefits if they can show they stopped using their PSN account, their Qriocity music subscription for the last three years because of the breach, or if they were registered for Sony Online Entertainment games.
