So far, Sony has not decided on whether to offer the reward but is actively considering.
The PSN has been down since April 17th, when Sony says it detected an attack and promptly shut down the service. Unfortunately, it was not quick enough, and 77 million accounts had their personal data stolen. Last week, Sony confirmed that another 25 million accounts were hacked from their Online division, which was then shut down, as well.
Yesterday, Sony Chairman Howard Stringer apologized for the multi-week outage of the PSN and offered all affected users in the U.S. one year of free identity-theft protection.
The company will offer $1 million insurance per user, which will cover legal expenses, identity-restoration costs and lost wages if your ID is stolen.
