I am glad the PS Store is back up and running! It’s a shame I already have the content your offering a discount on, or I already own the games. Like usual though, no real difference there. No Dragons Lair II Time Warp for free? Then who cares…. Glad your back though….it’s about freaking time.

    Hey there, this is an update for the PS Plus content, not Welcome Back. What’s cool is that yes you’ll still be able to snag inFamous (and another PS3 game from the Welcome Back list) AND get access to the content in PlayStation Plus for 30 days, free. Welcome Back content is coming soon!

So, I’m perhaps you could let me know what’s going down with the Uncharted 3 Beta. Since everyone is going to be given a free 30-Days of PlayStation Plus, does that mean that everyone is going to have access to the Uncharted 3 Multiplayer Beta from day one? Or will those who’ve had PlayStation Plus before the outage still have priority along with Infamous 2 purchase and everyone else will still have to wait a week.

In short, how will the Uncharted 3 Multiplayer Beta work? Can you shed some light on what we can expect since a month of free PlayStation Plus for ‘Welcome Back Program’ just so happens to fall on that Beta period?

YEEAAHH!!!
I’ve been wanting to buy the Deathspank games for a long time but the price always made me hold back.
Now with the Welcome Back package I can get both for the price of one!

    play what’s right for you, kind sir! =) MAG is an awesome game with an amazing community; and while it sounds like you’re more of a COD gamer, I’m sure Plus will have a ton of things you’ll love. Don’t forget, this is one of maaaannny Plus updates we do, so there’s always new stuff coming. As for Lilo and Stitch, important note, the ‘import’ was a typo. It’s the actual good ol’ USA version that Plus subscribers get free.

Instead of spamming the comments with your incessant complaining and abuse of the caps lock key, maybe you can take the time to read Morgan Haro’s response to comment 37.

I have a legit question for SONY…

PSN have been inaccessible for 40 days (if you don’t include april 20th and june 1st).
60 “free” days of PSN+ to current member means 20 days because I paid for the other 40.
Not paying for a service that is not accessible is not a freebie, it’s normal, no more, no less.

Here is the question, is the extension for current PSN+ member is 60 days or 60 days + 40 days of downtime (100 days in total)?

Keep in mind that non PSN+ have 30 free days of PSN+.

Lookiroo420– In a post, I think on page 2, he explains it’s a typo on the import biz. But, even in English I don’t think my seven y.o. son will play it. He played the Infamous 2 demo today and laughed the whole time. Just tone it down a notch or you lose due to being skipped over and ignored.

Sony-I’ve had my Plus since June 29, 2010, daqy one. (look it up, it’s there) When EU got LBP and we got, I don’t remember but it wasn’t very good, I blew it off cuz it’s a smaller market thus less expensive to give away. And now Burnout Paradise…is this because both studios are in the EU that they get these top tier releases free? What gives? We all pay the same price so we should all be treated fairly. With my anniversary/renewal date at the end of this month, and with the fact that you changed the terms on like day 10 as far as what we get monthly, this isn’t jiving with me. I never complain (look that up too), but this is not right.

EU’s welcome back package is even more attractive, in my opinion.
