Patrick Seybold's Avatar + Posted by Patrick Seybold on May 16, 2011 // 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!

+ srhghost916 on May 16th, 2011 at 2:32 pm said:

Okay but what about a game that’s new or good even?

Not trying to be rude but you offer old games like we are just lames. Nice of you to make this offer but I feel kinda robbed.


233

+ DontKnowMe on May 16th, 2011 at 2:32 pm said:

The only game I don’t own on that list is Dead Nation. Will these be the only options?


234

+ Nunchuckles on May 16th, 2011 at 2:32 pm said:

Well all I want is to know the exact date when the PS Store will be back up. Sadly I already own all the PS3 games mentioned in the Welcome Back Program. An announcement of a new online/feature would be cool though.

+ LTDementis on May 16th, 2011 at 2:33 pm said:

What happens if you own 4 out of the 5 titles listed? Why can’t these things ever just be “here’s X amount of credit” so we could actually get things we want/don’t own?

Ok first of all I wanna say thanks Sony for getting PSN back up. For all you people complaining about already having those games just suck it up! PSN was down for 24 days, and all of you people expected compensation for it, it wasn’t Sony’s fault that happened, some hacker(s) got mad and took it upon themself to do that. If you read your disclaimer when you signed up for PSN there was probably something in there about what happens in the event of PSN going down. Sony can’t just give games away because of trademark and copyright conditions. They got a few companies to help out and now you have a few games, 30 free days of PS+ (60 if you’re already one), free movies, 100+ things for home. Just appreciate the fact that you got SOMETHING and don’t complain about getting FREE stuff.
