Default Is this legit?

I recieved this as an email and want to know if this is legitimate.

It seems a bit sus as I dont have a Sony account (i cant ever recall having one anyway). Is this a sneaky fishing expedition or legit?

I think it's legit. I got one very similar. My boys play Clone Wars Adventures and that is where we link to Sony.

It looks correct. I take it you have a PS3? Check in your account settings to see if it's the same email. As usual, don't click on anything in an email that you think may be sus.

I have not seen this e-mail, nor did my son receive one. We just had to chane our passwords on the PSN. I would be wary and contact SONY first.

I dont have a PS3 - infact there are no sony devices in the house thats why I thought it was sus. I thought this was a more appropriate forum than the lab as it can be sony centric here at times.

We have clone wars (PC game ) through steam though :shrug:

cheers fellas

I havent received that email but it could be different in different parts of the world. Sounds dodgy considering you dont have a PS3, i would be very careful.

I got the email as well (having a PS3 and using PSN) but I know I never signed up for SOE's station account - so I'm not trusting it.

I have not received any such email as of now, and considering I have both a PS3 and a (albeit old and disused) SOE account, I'd be a bit suspicious of this one too. If I do get something along those lines, of course, I will update this post. As was said before though, it may be simply a difference in geographical locations/ delayed rollout type of situation.

never seen or heard about that and I'm sure it has nothing at all to do with sony


Oh and all active PSN accounts get 1 month (30 days) free to the +PLUS account, and 2 free games. Nothing more

I never got that E-mail either ( I have PSN )
