Hi everyone,

First of all, welcome back and many thanks for everyone’s patience as we worked to restore the PlayStation Store! It’s been more than a month now since our last PlayStation Plus update, but with the Store back up and running we have some great announcements about free games, discounts and exclusives for Plus subscribers – all coming to you in two publishes: June 3 and June 7.

We’d also like to take this opportunity to introduce Morgan Haro, Community Manager for PlayStation Network. Morgan joined the PlayStation team back in March and he’ll be answering your questions and offering feedback in the comments section.

Without further adieu, check out some of our highlighted offers below, along with the full list that follows.

When can we expect the promised “welcome back” package? Now that the store is up, it would seem there are no further barriers to this. It would be a shame if we all had to wait until June 6 for our Playstation Plus free trial, just so Sony can look like big heroes during the E3 press conference.

Weird. I’m a Plus member, yet I’m actually more interested in the regular publish than the Plus publish till they’re caught up. Lots of stuff to put out there, and while sales are nice, new things are better.

    + Morgan Haro on June 2nd, 2011 at 5:08 pm said:

    Marketing Mode *on: You can get a year of Plus for $49.99 (that’s just over $4/month) or get a 3 month subscription for $17.99. Don’t forget that the Welcome Back package gives you 30 days of Plus as well, but any subscription you purchase during that time will be stacked automatically as well. Marketing Mode *off

Got me at FREE!

When can we expect to see everyone that isn’t a PlayStation Plus Member to get there Free PlayStation Plus??

I hope they choose a different color other then a yellow Plus like us Paying Members… I would like it to be something other then yellow.. can that be possible please say yes.. I like to be an Elite Member not look like everyone else.

@22 @ballagh Call of Duty Black Ops struck a deal with Microsoft to have all the DLC content to be first on XBOX and It most likely applies to PC.

Just look at it this way.. they get to see content first but if theres a bug in that content they will be the first to experience it haha.. we should get the better end of the stick out of this and by my judge we do.

So EU gets burnout paradise, and we get lilo and stitch? I’ll ask again, how do you keep your jobs? Its just downright embarrassing at this point. Why did I pay for plus again? Care to explain how I can go about getting a refund? Everything about ps+ has been a lie.

Not to mention that EU got LBP for free also, so thanks for the mini’s and ps1 games that are made for 7 year olds. Care to explain how NA does not get full fledged titles? Whats that, youll ignore this blog post as you do every other, even with another person monitoring it this time. Keep up the less than abysmal effort ps blog team!

+ BigBangBear on June 2nd, 2011 at 4:35 pm said:

Not quite the PS+ return I was hoping for. Best thing is the inFamous 2 dynamic theme and maybe DeathSpank discount. Hopefully the next update will be better. Kind of figured the first month back would be big to try and convince non-PS+ers to keep it after their 30 days for PSN being down.

Wow… Lilo and Stitch (Import… can we even understand it??) instead of Burnout? Who decides this stuff? lol

    whoops! typo on our part. This is not an the import of Lilo and Stitch, but the English-friendly, North American version of the title.

    Don’t forget, Plus updates all the time with new content so watch for more updates coming down the road.

That’s a typo on the Resident Evil 4 avatars. It’s actually the Resident Evil 5 avatar bundle. Bought that this morning! So glad the store is up! Just got Rainbow Six Vegas 2 as well. I am kindly waiting for the Welcome Back Program so I can experience inFamous which looks fun.

I almost forgot. I checked the PS Plus Q&As from last year but couldn’t get an answer. Hope you can help me.

I tried a full game trial(ModNation Racers). It expired. I can get trophies when playing trials but on the Q&As says trophies will not unlock until I buy the game there. My question is: Can I get the retail version(getting it new obviusly) and still have those trophies I unlocked during the trial version?

Thanks in advance.
