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.

    First! And good going Sony, keep it up

  • wow, thanks a lot for that Sony :D

  • Well this is pretty useless considering I already own all those games. Way to make me feel “appreciated.”

  • Awesome thanks for all the free stuff I assume all people will be eligible?

  • Solid! Thanks very much Sony

  • iPwnedUDude

  • kingsam1327

  • theonecalledgsk

    This is very awesome. Thank you, SCEA!

  • KONVICTED_AVENGR

    thank god its finally back

  • Wow these are amazing games to give out for free! I thought it would just be cheap minis like angry birds or something throw away like that!

  • KONVICTED_AVENGR

    they should of gave us free black ops maps though

  • WICKED-CRAZY

    The PS3 should get mod nation racers too.

    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…

  • ok question, i have my ps3 and a psp does that mean i get both? not trying to be greedy but im just curious.

  • YAY!!! been wanting to play dead nation.

  • GoodFella2487

    WHOOHOO!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Hey!!! thanks sony ^-^, btw i live in colombia but my ps3 is registered in the us, can i apply to those goodies?

  • Oh YEEEAH, two of those I don’t have XD
    Can’t wait :)
    Thanks Sony

  • deadreckoning666

    Excellent move Sony..just excellent.

  • Nice games and keep it up Sony!!
    As for me i have all this games( because i am huge of your firs and second party games) so this promo isn’t
    for me but i am glad that PSN is up:D

  • Prince_of_da_Bay

    nice dead nation and infamous here I come

  • 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

  • Thanx !!

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

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

  • SlimChonson

    Cool deal, Sony. Thanks! :)

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

  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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.

  • Thank you Sony and all the developers who contributed.

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

  • 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!

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

  • APerez76859

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

  • Infamous and Superstardust HD for me!

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

  • bountyhunter501

    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_

    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.

  • 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

  • Can anyone else say LBP and Infamous!?

  • 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

    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

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

  • The_Apprentice

    I have all those PS3 Games :(

  • WOOT man SONY FOREVER !!

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

  • Dragonzblaze

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

  • mywhitenoise

    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).

  • 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.
