It has been five years since the infamous 2011 PlayStation Network hack which compromised approximately 77 million accounts and caused the Sony network to be shutdown for three weeks. Sony has already offered free games to compensate the affected users at that time, but now the company is beginning the rollout of free games to anyone who participated in a class action lawsuit against the company in regards to the breach.
