SOE will grant customers 30 days of additional time on their subscriptions, in addition to compensating them one day for each day the system is down. It is also in the process of outlining a "make good" plan for its PlayStation®3 MMOs (DC Universe Online and Free Realms). More information will be released this week.

Additionally, the company is committed to helping its customers protect their personal data and will provide a complimentary offering to assist users in enrolling in identity theft protection services and/or similar programs. The implementation will be at a local level and further details will be made available shortly in each region.

I would guess that payments continue as usual. With all the mucking around going on atm, I would think they'd apply the 'free' month at some later date. But, that's just a guess, nothing more.

be interesting to see if that free month is applied to active subs or all subs. might result in a free month for expired accounts as well.

Im dowm with the double xp all month thing, but what im trying to figure out is the connection between the killing of Osama Bin Laden and the hacking of Sony Online Entertainment both about the same time. Perhaps Osama hacked it just before elite Seal Team Six made their assault?

Maybe Osama hacked SOE and the Seal team really went it to get the flash drives and whatnot that had all our EQ info on them. Sony with a nice political donation to Obama called in a favor? Surely a stretch but I have heard worst conspiracy theories.
