Details for PlayStation Network and Qriocity Customer Appreciation Program in North America

Patrick Seybold's Avatar Posted by Sr. Director, Corporate Communications & Social Media

Now that some PlayStation Network and Qriocity services have been restored and you’re once again enjoying online gaming and entertainment, we’re happy to provide details about the “Welcome Back” appreciation program for customers in North America. We developed the program as an expression of our gratitude for your patience, support and continued loyalty during the service outage. From all of us at PlayStation, thank you and welcome back!

This package will be made available to all existing registered PlayStation Network and Qriocity users in North America (US and Canada), and will be made available shortly after we have fully restored the service. More specific details about these offers and eligibility requirements will be posted as the services go live.

All PlayStation Network customers can select two PS3 games from the following list. The games will be available for 30 days shortly after PlayStation Store is restored and can be kept forever.

  • Dead Nation
  • inFAMOUS
  • LittleBigPlanet
  • Super Stardust HD
  • Wipeout HD + Fury

For PSP owners, you will be eligible to download two PSP games from the following list. The games will be available for 30 days shortly after PlayStation Store is restored and can be kept forever.

  • LittleBigPlanet (PSP)
  • ModNation Racers
  • Pursuit Force
  • Killzone Liberation
  • 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 PlayStation Plus subscribers.
  • Existing PlayStation Plus subscribers will receive an additional 60 days of free subscription.
  • Existing Music Unlimited Premium Trial subscription members will receive an additional 30 days of free premium subscription.
  • Additional 30 days + time lost for existing members of Music Unlimited Premium/Basic subscription free of charge for existing Premium/Basic members.
  • To welcome users Home, 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.

We’d like to thank all of our publishing and development partners who’ve contributed to the Welcome Back program, including Bigbig Studios, Codeglue, Digital Leisure, Guerilla Games, Heavy Water, Housemarque, Lockwood, Loot, Mass Media, Media Molecule, SCE Cambridge Studios, SCE Studio Liverpool, SCE San Diego Studios, and Sucker Punch Productions. We couldn’t have created such a compelling package without them!

As a reminder, you will be able to access the above content shortly after services are fully restored. We are doing everything we can to make that happen as soon as possible. Please visit the following sites for more information about the Welcome Back program in Europe and Latin America.

Thank you again for your support!

KONVICTED_AVENGR said:

Playstation Home is still not working, at least not for new users. It attempts to start up and then complains of a disconnection from the servers. It seems to be trying to reach the PSN Store for some reason, which could be the problem. Something that only occurs for new Home users?

When you say “existing” PSN members will receive the Welcome Back package, what do you mean? Existing at the time the package is available? Existing before the April 19th outage? I bought my PS3 on the first day of the outage, unaware that there WAS an outage. Because of the outage I wasn’t able to use my PS3 to play Portal 2 online on Steam, which was the whole reason I had purchased it in the first place. Seems like I ought to be in on at least some of the compensation. I sat on this site looking for news for 3 weeks just like everybody else…

Prince_of_da_Bay said:

May 16th, 2:13 pm

nice dead nation and infamous here I come

yazter said:

May 16th, 2:13 pm

And wow you guys rose like a phoenix from the ashes. I’m more than happy to publicly humiliate myself and say I was an idiot for the comments I made xD

At any rate, I do have all those games except Stardust HD, but I don’t mind. I’m mainly glad I got a 60 days extension on my Plus subscription. That’s more than I could ask for XD

GameBoss01 said:

May 16th, 2:14 pm

Thanx !!

yazter said:

May 16th, 2:14 pm

Oh and if nobody has those games, they are really awesome!!

psyXcho said:

May 16th, 2:14 pm

same question as jvasq do ps3 and psp owners get 4 games?

SlimChonson said:

May 16th, 2:15 pm

Cool deal, Sony. Thanks! :)

Ejsponge61 said:

May 16th, 2:15 pm

Thanks Sony, we appreciate it! Have a awesome E3!

navcomm81 said:

May 16th, 2:15 pm

It’s funny because most of the ‘Welcome Back’ titles are ones we already own since they’re pretty much flagship titles. As for non-subscribers getting a month of PlayStation Plus …. best of luck to them enjoying the ‘free games’ unless they continue by paying after 30 days.

Smart Sony, I see what you did there.

Jim777 said:

May 16th, 2:15 pm

Great deal!
Cant wait to grab those goodies. If multiple people use the same PS3 can they grab different rewards? For example can i grab 2 and my brother a different 2 etc

cortesc130 said:

May 16th, 2:15 pm

It would be really nice if we had new features as well like Cross game chat and to be able to change your PSN Id as well.

Sting-R-3 said:

May 16th, 2:15 pm

Thank you Sony and all the developers who contributed.

RuneKey said:

May 16th, 2:15 pm

How will I be able to redeem these PlayStation Home gifts?

DZORMAGEN said:

May 16th, 2:15 pm

What happens if I happen to own all the PS3 games?

Dead Nation
inFAMOUS
LittleBigPlanet
Super Stardust HD
Wipeout HD + Fury

I am not lying when I say I am a loyal Sony, and Playstation consumer!

Surfaced said:

May 16th, 2:15 pm

Couldn’t possibly rate this any less than 5-stars. Well done, SCE. You’ve “made good”.

APerez76859 said:

May 16th, 2:15 pm

Thanks Sony! I wish I did not already own 4 of the 5 games that come with the package. Oh well.

EatDeath said:

May 16th, 2:16 pm

Infamous and Superstardust HD for me!

Stiner said:

May 16th, 2:16 pm

Way to go choosing the most popular titles that most people already have.

bountyhunter501 said:

May 16th, 2:16 pm

Sounds awesome! Thanks for the heads up :) hopefully the store will be up soon, I think I need to clear my hard drive to make room for this stuff :)

Dice_for_Death_ said:

May 16th, 2:16 pm

Not bad. Thanks, Sony. I could’ve done without the free games, but all the same, it’s a welcome gesture. Secure those back doors.

ToFeY said:

May 16th, 2:16 pm

thanks sony ;D
but i have most of these games LOL
and i don’t care about free stuff i just want the store back again

osamaFTW said:

May 16th, 2:16 pm

Can anyone else say LBP and Infamous!?

angelcoma said:

May 16th, 2:16 pm

I own all those games. It sucks, I really wish you guys would have checked users accounts and if they already have all those games, you give them in store credit. I mean, we are loyal customers that PURCHASE your titles. The least you can do instead of not getting anything.

As for the rest, awesome. :)

DuoMaxwell007 said:

May 16th, 2:16 pm

While none of those games interest me the selection is at least a million times better than I had thought it would be, great job sony

sonofmanx said:

May 16th, 2:16 pm

Looks like a very good selection of games. Thank you Sony guys.

The_Apprentice said:

May 16th, 2:17 pm

Travide said:

May 16th, 2:17 pm

thuggy316 said:

May 16th, 2:17 pm

Is there any alternative if i already have all games offered for ps3 ?

Dragonzblaze said:

May 16th, 2:17 pm

awesome news getting inFAMOUS and dead nation ty sony u guys rock

mywhitenoise said:

May 16th, 2:17 pm

That is a VERY nice package. The only thing that would top it off, is more avatars, for ALL members (avatars that don’t require to be downloaded from the store).

Whizkid105 said:

May 16th, 2:17 pm

Oh wow. Two PS3 games and two PSP games, movie rentals, and 100 Home items? Jeeze Sony, I know you’re sorry, but you don’t have to welcome us back THAT hard. Not that I’m complaining or anything..I’m just very surprised at what you’re giving us. I expected maybe two $10 PSN games.

I’m very happy PSN is back online. Thanks Sony. It was tough, your customers were on your back, but us loyal fans will follow you through Hell and back.
:)
