Sony evaluating possible goodwill gesture for PSN outage and breach

There's been a lot for PSN users to be concerned about regarding the service's outage and recent, user-exposing security breach -- but one element that's gone unaddressed by Sony is, hey, what's in it for us? In a new, late night edition of PlayStation Blog's Q&A, Sony responds to our outcries for compensation, saying, "We are currently evaluating ways to show appreciation for your extraordinary patience as we work to get these services back online."

The FAQ post also confirms that any Trophies earned during the downtime will be synced without a hitch once the network comes back online, and that Friends lists and PlayStation Plus saves haven't been lost. Which is great, because that is definitely what we were worried about. Definitely not the fact that we're all in imminent danger of getting totally Talented Mr. Ripley'd.
