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.

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!

I was actually hoping for more downloadable titles. The only thing I don’t own on the PS3 list is Wipeout. I was holding out on Dead Nation, but caved when it won the Gamers Choice award.

this has just answer my questions for the most part and for that i thank you.id like to know regarding Home will there be any new spaces launching soon as the downtime should have gave developers ample time to create.

+ Brookafish on May 16th, 2011 at 2:18 pm said:

Many of us are having issues with needing to redeem a code so we can download a small file to enable multiplayer, will that function be enabled before everyone is able to start downloading their free games? are things like that going to be handled by different servers than the ones handling the delivery of free games? I’m worried the extreme traffic that will result from being able to downloadd games for free willhinder our ability to use other aspects of the network

What about me? I bought a ps3 literally the day after it went down. I had no idea. Go home. And bam. I got owned so hard. Extremely upsetting to pay for a month of netflix and basically only recieve half of it. Because i lost the other half due to PSN being down. So what do i get? Because i wasnt existing at that time. Im sure ill be boned in this of course. GG sony. Just switched from the 360 too.

+ Zeer0id on May 16th, 2011 at 2:19 pm said:

There’s a fantastic selection of games there; thanks a bunch, Sony. It’s just a shame that I already own so many of them! I’ll pick up Dead Nation though, for sure. And though I have WipEout, I don’t have Fury yet.

One question, though. Will Super Stardust HD be bundled with any or all of its expansion packs?

+ Sh1nato on May 16th, 2011 at 2:19 pm said:

does anyone still play the first LBP online?


75

+ PhillyPhreak on May 16th, 2011 at 2:19 pm said:

I own all of the PS3 titles listed, but a good deal for anyone new to PS3 or does not own any of those titles. I’ll definitely take advantage of the 30 day free trial for PS+. I’ll download a few PS+ items at discounted prices. :)

sweet, the games are ones they know most everyone already has.
why not just store credit? i have other stuff i want.

and if i buy something (other than those listed) with my temporary (and it will be temporary) PS+ thing do i get to keep any of it after it expires?


83

+ The_Annihilator on May 16th, 2011 at 2:19 pm said:

Sounds good, I’m going to grab Super Stardust. I’ve been meaning to get that game for a while but never did.


84

+ Od1n757 on May 16th, 2011 at 2:19 pm said:

and what if a player already owns one or multiple of these games can they instead get something else of equal value?
