Got the email thursday.

The one time I felt like playing some black ops online the system went down. Usually don't feel like playing games at all anymore these days, god of war 3/red dead redemption/arkham asylum and resident evil 5 have sat there for like 2-3 months, have't finished any of them, but i've been wanting to play black ops for like 2 weeks now, especially since I was gonna get the new maps and all. Hope it's back soon.

Some features to be restored next week! Also, we will all get Playstation Plus 30 day memberships and a free software download

During a press conference tonight in Tokyo, Sony detailed what it will reward PlayStation Network users when the service is turned back on next week after being shut down due to an illegal intrusion.

Sony announced its "Welcome Back" program worldwide, giving all existing PlayStation Network users 30 days of PlayStation Plus for free. Current PSN+ members will receive 30 days of additional service for free. It will also provide "selected PlayStation entertainment content" for free download. Details for each region will be announced at a later date. Music Unlimited subscribers (in countries where the service is available) will receive 30 days free service.

"This criminal act against our network had a significant impact not only on our consumers, but our entire industry," said Kazuo Hirai, Executive Deputy President, Sony Corporation. "These illegal attacks obviously highlight the widespread problem with cyber-security. We take the security of our consumers' information very seriously and are committed to helping our consumers protect their personal data. In addition, the organization has worked around the clock to bring these services back online, and are doing so only after we had verified increased levels of security across our networks.

"Our global audience of PlayStation Network and Qriocity consumers was disrupted. We have learned lessons along the way about the valued relationship with our consumers, and to that end, we will be launching a customer appreciation program for registered consumers as a way of expressing our gratitude for their loyalty during this network downtime, as we work even harder to restore and regain their trust in us and our services."

Sony also said it is working with the FBI criminal investigation to track down who hacked the network. The company re-confirmed it does not believe credit card information was taken, but says customers should keep an eye on their bank statements. Of the 78 million PSN users, roughly 10 million had active credit cards on their account.

When the Network goes live next week, users must download a new system firmware update and will ask users to create a new password. Sony will also do a phased rollout by region for PSN services. Next week's initial rollout includes:

- Restoration of Online game-play across the PlayStation 3 and PSP systems. This includes titles requiring online verification and downloaded games

- Access to Music Unlimited powered by Qriocity for PS3/PSP for existing subscribers. Sony will have a phased rollout by region for PlayStation Network next week. The services that will be available include:

- Access to account management and password reset

- Access to download un-expired Movie Rentals on PS3, PSP and MediaGo

- PlayStation Home

- Friends List

- Chat Functionality

The one thing that won't be up right away is the PSN Store, so we'll have to wait to take advantage of the free downloads. But they say everything should be up by the end of May

Yea, I'm guessing the exploit that was used to hack was through the store and some downloadable games. I heard they are actually issuing new SDK's to developers so that would mean it was a hole in the old SDK used for games.
