Anyone else in Canada get this email?

I got an email yesterday that was asking anyone in Canada, if they wish to involve themselves with the class action lawsuit against Sony. In case you forget, this was about when hackers broke into Sony's servers. They had a Welcome Back campaign after being down a few weeks and we all got a free game.
Now if you opt into the suit, you can get another free game (from a list). This was not spam or junk mail, it was an actual notice. Just curious if anyone got this and opted into it.

my friend from canada mentioned something about this but said to qualify for the lawsuit you had to have not signed into the specific account since the hack (basically circumventing that update released shortly after psn came back up on the ToS). not sure if he actually got the email himself

Everyone is getting it, most people have had it flagged to their spam.

At any rate I am not on board with this, SONY gave us free games as part of the welcome back program, and in some cases you got quite a few if you made different accounts. I don't see the point in the hassle on my part, anyone else can do it, all power to them.

Yeah I got it as well. It's not spam.

Basically, if you had money in your PSN wallet or any other Sony related product that was connected to your ps3 prior to the attacks, then you qualify to get that money back, or maybe more depending on the settlement.
You also must not have signed into that account since the attacks.

this is not true.

WHAT DOES THE SETTLEMENT PROVIDE?

There are various benefits, depending in part on what type of account(s) you had:

Inactive PlayStation Network Accountholders:

If you used any of your PSN accounts any time from January 1, 2011 through May 14, 2011, but you did not use them after that through January 24, 2013 because of the Intrusions, you can get a payment equal to any balance of paid virtual currency in your account wallet if that balance is at least U.S. $2.

Active PlayStation Network Accountholders:

a) If you paid other companies for certain media services that you could not access through the PSN during the PSN outage from April 20 through May 14, 2011, you can get 3 free PS3 themes or a 50% discount on PlayStation Plus for 3 months. Up to U.S. $100,000 in total benefits will be available, on a first-come, first-served basis.

b) If you participated in the PSN "Welcome Back" program that followed the April 2011 service outage, you can get either a free game for your PS3 or PSP, 3 free PS3 themes, or a 50% discount on PlayStation Plus for 3 months. If you did not participate in the PSN "Welcome Back" program, you can submit a claim for two of the above benefits. Up to U.S. $1 million in these benefits will be available, on a first-come, first-served basis; claimants who file claims thereafter can get a 50% discount on PlayStation Plus for one month.

Qriocity Accountholders:

If you were not a PSN accountholder but you had a Qriocity account at the time of the April 2011 service outage, you can get one free month of Music Unlimited.

Inactive Sony Online Entertainment Accountholders:

If you used any of your SOE accounts at any time from January 1 through May 14, 2011, but you did not use them after that through January 24, 2013 because of the Intrusions, you can get a payment equal to any balance of paid virtual currency in your account wallet if that balance is at least U.S. $2.

Active Sony Online Entertainment Accountholders:

You can get a deposit of U.S. $4.50 in "Station Cash" into that account, usable for SOE digital products and services. Deposits will be reduced proportionally if total deposits exceed U.S. $240,000 in benefits.

Identity Theft Reimbursement Claims:

If you incurred out-of-pocket charges due to actual identity theft and submit documentation proving by a preponderance of the evidence that the intrusion(s) directly and proximately caused the identity theft, you can submit a claim for reimbursement up to $2,500. Reimbursements will be reduced proportionally if the amount payable on all valid claims exceeds U.S. $90,000.

For more information, including limitations and conditions on all of these benefits, read the detailed notice at

www.PSN-SOE-CanadaSettlement.com


this means everyone is eligible they just get different settlement.

Not worth the hassel to me. The list of free games offered is exactly the same as the list from the welcome back program last time. Lame. Why not offer actual GOOD games?
