Sony to Execute "Welcome Back" Gesture

Well the PSN has been down for at least 2 weeks now, and it would appear that it will finally be coming back in a crippled state soon, and then fully live in about a week. Sony will of course continue to be busy on this issue, but they are rolling around ideas of what to say to those out there effected, and for those who simply still have a PlayStation 3 after the attack that caused so much information to be stolen. Now what will they do? Well it would appear that they will be offering up free downloads, of unknown content, 30 days free of PlayStation Network Plus, and 30 free days of Qriocity. There's also talk of them footing the bill for credit card replacement fees for those affected. 

I'm not going to say that I'm displeased with Sony basically handing stuff out to the PSN users, but at the same time I think that there really isn't a whole lot they can do to rectify the situation. This show of good will might have some people smiling, but to be honest the lack of safety to my personal information can't be band-aided by a couple of free games (most of which I bet you are games they are about to remove from the store, or they have a deal with the developer/publisher and are trying to bolster their numbers). I'm sorry but Sony has long ago lost the benifit of the doubt with me after the wonderfully craptastic PlayStation 3/PSP Go! launches. 

Readers, of those out there with a PlayStation 3, what do you think Sony should do, will the promise of the above mentioned pieces be enough, or do you crave more?
