By Gary Johnson - May 6, 2011

We told you earlier today that Sony CEO Sir Howard Stringer had posted a letter apologizing for the PSN outage, and offering some free identity theft insurance for users. Now we have some more news on what else users can expect to get. According to the PlayStation EU Blog Sony is to offer two free games when the PlayStation Network is back online.

The post by Nick Caplin mentioned about the free insurance already offered to users in the US, and said it will become available in other countries as well with more details should be available early next week. The post then mentions the offer of some free games, with PSN users getting the choice of two games from a list of five.

Owners of the PSP will also get two games from a list of four; details of the free games will be made available soon. On the US PlayStation Blog there are more details of the insurance policy Sony is going to offer users. Within the next few days users will get an activation email for them to sign up and redeem their code.

You will then have until June 18 to do so and get your free 12 month policy from a company called Debix, Inc.Whatever your frustrations with Sony it looks like the company are trying to repair some of the damage done to its relationship with its customers.
