Yesterday, we brought you the news that PSN was returning later this week, and today, Sony announced another batch of freebies for new / current subscribers. In addition to identity theft protection, you’ll get “free downloads, 30 days of free membership in the PlayStation Plus premium subscription service; 30 days of free service for Music Unlimited subscribers; and extending PlayStation Plus and Music Unlimited subscriptions for the number of days services were unavailable.” Here’s what Sony plans to do to prevent future attacks:

We are taking a number of steps to prevent future breaches, including enhanced levels of data protection and encryption; enhanced ability to detect software intrusions, unauthorized access and unusual activity patterns; additional firewalls; establishment of a new data center in an undisclosed location with increased security; and the naming of a new Chief Information Security Officer.
