Sony has confirmed a similar plan will take place in Europe, with details to follow shortly.

North Americans will receive offer emails "over the next few days" including a promotional code for Debix's service, valid until June 18th. The plan will alert users if their private data turns up on criminal websites, and will cover users with a $1 million identity theft insurance policy.

Debix's service would typically cost around $120 a year, so consider this a nice gesture.
