After possibly losing your credit card details and personal data, and, more importantly, not allowing you to play online after taking the PlayStation Network down for over 3 weeks, some gamers demanded that Sony make amends and give everyone free stuff. Good news then, as they are.
The North American Welcome Back package has been detailed on the US PS Blog, and it’s very similar to Europe’s gifts other than for one game, more details on what PS Home users will be treated to and a rental movie offer.
For PS3 users, two games from the following:
- Wipeout HD/Fury
- Super Stardust HD
- Dead Nation
For PSP users, two games from the following (PSP and PS3 users will get both platforms’ freebies):
- LittleBigPlanet PSP
- ModNation Racers PSP
- Pursuit Force
- Killzone Liberation
Additionally, PSN users will receive:
- A selection of “On Us” rental movie titles will be available to PlayStation Network customers over one weekend, where Video Service is available. Those titles will be announced soon.
- 30 days free PlayStation Plus membership for non-PS Plus subscribers
- Existing PlayStation Plus subscribers will be given 60 days free subscription.
- Existing Music Unlimited subscribers will be given 30 days free subscription + time lost. [Previously, Sony said that all PSN members would be given 30 days subscription.]
- PlayStation Home will be offering 100 free virtual items. Additional free content will be released soon, including the next addition to the Home Mansion personal space, and Ooblag’s Alien Casino, an exclusive game.
Users must have been an account holder on 20 April 2011, and you will have 30 days from when the welcome back program goes live to redeem the content.
Which games will you be choosing, or do you have all the games already?
