Patrick Seybold's Avatar Posted by 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!

plus the one game on the list i dont own is little big planet and i dont care for that game. so I basically dont get anything for my pain and suffering.

NickiChaos said:

May 16th, 2:38 pm

really? that’s it? i mean it’s cool that i’m getting a free copy of inFamous… but still… that doesn’t seem like much… And what if you’re PS3 and PSP owner? do you get to take advantage of both offers and download 4 free games? or do you just get 2 free games to us on either the PSP or the PS3?

gian729 said:

May 16th, 2:38 pm

Yay !! :D sounds great , hopefully it will be available in Europe soon

Ambies_Boy said:

May 16th, 2:38 pm

Do we get to choose 2 psp and 2 ps3, or is it 2 titles total, meaning 2 on one system or 2 on the other sytem or 1 on each. i’m confused about this? Hope its 2 on each system.

Wow nice Sony back online and kicking :p

KittypicK_6 said:

May 16th, 2:38 pm

How will Sony make sure that people who have more than one account don’t just get all the free games if they have like three or more accounts where they can just get all of the games because that’s pretty cheap.

Is there a plan to cover MAG extra character slot ‘subscriptions’? Because of how long the system was down, most of the second and third slots people might have paid for will have expired. Since the store is down, we can’t even buy an extra month. Ideally, I’d like to see accounts that had the extra slots credited for the days PSN was down, and for the expiration to be disabled while the PSN Store remains in maintenance.

Yeah i agree on them picks, i dont think the other 2 look good

PrototypeApp said:

May 16th, 2:38 pm

I appreciate the offer, but I have Dead Nation and Infamous already and am not interested in the other PS3 games :(

Would it be possible for you guys to add a few more games to that list for us to choose from please?

Thanks PSN and their employees and partners! This is an awesome package beyond my expectations. So glad to have the Network up and gaming.

CorruptedSavior said:

May 16th, 2:39 pm

That’s pretty sweet. I’m gonna choose inFamous and LBP. I’ve been loyal to Sony since the ps1 and I shall stay loyal = )

That sucks I just bought Infamous when PSN went down so I would have something to play.

patteetz said:

May 16th, 2:39 pm

I was excited about this. Less excited now because I already own all the free games. Thanks I guess.

Jigsaw541 said:

May 16th, 2:39 pm

Really? Is there any way to just deposit an amount of credit, like $20, into your account of you choose NOT to redeem any of those? I literally own all the games listed (that I want, in other words all the good ones) and have been a loyal customer to not only playstation but Sony as well (my PSP, Vaio, and Bravia can prove that.) Just kind of seems like a nice welcome back package to newer customers, but not to long-time ones who have been with you from the get-go. I’d love some credit instead, and quite frankly was shocked when there was no mention of credit being deposited into everyone’s accounts. You’d be making money by doing so as we would be more likely to continue downloading content from the PSN store with a small incentive, like the $20 credit I mentioned earlier.

DarkSector1994 said:

May 16th, 2:40 pm

Berae said:

May 16th, 2:40 pm

Thats cool… but unfortunetly I bought all those PSN games already. Thanks anyway.

aistis123456789 said:

May 16th, 2:40 pm

Wow this is so awesome that you are giving us 2games for free I can’t believe that you are doing this but can’t you give more games rather than those five to chose from

Unplugged said:

May 16th, 2:40 pm

Great! But I already own all the PS3 games offered. Can’t there be more games to offer?
As French Canadian and Sony fan, I feel left over, can’t participate in contest and can’t access to new stuff! x.x

VelocityToad said:

May 16th, 2:40 pm

Though it seems like a nice option, I already own all of those.. not a very good compensation for me.. would have been better to provide me with a store credit…

over all not happy.

brandon17e said:

May 16th, 2:41 pm

half decent titles i guess not overly impressive the reel tide turner would have been 20 or 50 dollars psn credit and an extention on ps plus if u have it cause these titles lets just say arent unbelievabley amazing like half these comments say they are


May 16th, 2:41 pm

WOW, thx Sony and feel free to add me peeps… I play all kinds of games online…

jeanrmarques said:

May 16th, 2:41 pm

Too bad I already have all of those games :/ (as most loyal fans probably do)

djsaiyan said:

May 16th, 2:41 pm

Here’s a question:

Will my saves/trophy data for my disc based copies of LittleBigPlanet and inFamous cross compatible with the download versions? It’d be nice to be able to swap them out for digitals, and then trade them towards something else, like say…..inFamous 2.

WaveLightning777 said:

May 16th, 2:41 pm
