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!

Street_Killaz said:

June 2nd, 6:10 pm

Looking Good Sony…

Take your time sony with the welcome back program…Have alote off games to beat!!

ESHAM976 said:

June 2nd, 6:14 pm

and who the hell wants to play ghost recon advance warfighter as a 60min trial? that game bombed 2weeks after it released 3-4years ago. what next…. free game trial to HAZE… that stinker. i was looking forward to the free infamous. indian giving bastards. you guys better have a hell of a e3 this years and i hope starhawk isn’t your only ace in the hole. starting to see a xbox360 and konict in my future.

WILL MY TROPHIES FROM TOM CLANCY CARRY OVER FROM THE TRIAL? OH WAIT, THE GAME IS SO OLD IT DOESNT EVEN HAVE TROPHIES, THANKS FOR THE ONLY GAME MORE PATHETIC THAN LILO AND STITCH.

NeoMahi said:

June 2nd, 6:22 pm

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?

Vinland_Krauser said:

June 2nd, 6:24 pm

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!

    *high five* I’m pretty excited for the Death Spank discount myself! Didn’t get to it when it first dropped, now I have no excuse

Hey Morgan what’s keeping us from selling our ps3s and getting an xbox who plays mag except for people who dont have cod they get a free dlc and we dont get the new cod dlc for free come morgan talk some sense into the board and who is going to download lilo & stitch besides guys who have little kids and not to mention its not in english plz tell me Morgan.

    June 2nd, 7:40 pm

    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.

We go from Oddworld to Lilo & Stich? Really?

Hooligantuan said:

June 2nd, 6:42 pm

If people get MAG Interdiction DLC free through their month of PlayStation+ membership, will they lose access to that MAG content when PS+ expires?

Klokateer1986 said:

June 2nd, 6:44 pm

Of all the classic PS1 titles out there they could give us for “free”, we get… Lilo and Stitch… a game nobody wanted to play even back then… W..T…F..

I’m at a loss for words for how FAIL this is… what self respecting gamer would want to play this old a$$ childs game, let alone let it take up their harddrive space.

NO THANKS SONY.

@Lokiroo420

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.

“+ Morgan Haro on June 2nd, 2011 at 5:37 pm said:
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.”

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+.

Lokiroo420 said:

June 2nd, 7:15 pm

YOU MEAN THE REPLY THAT WAS AN HOUR AFTER MY COMMENTS, YH, UH, MAYBE WATCH THE BLOG AFTER YOU MAKE A PST, OVEER AN HOUR TO EVEN NOTICE A TYPO, SO UH YH DERPTASTIC JOB MORGAN.

FREE? NOTHING HERE IS FREE, I PAID FOR A YEAR SUBSCRIPTION, 50 BUCKS, NONE OF THIS IS FREE, STOP DRINKING THE KOOLAID.

LOL@LILO AND STITCH, SUCH A FAIL

kingmanic said:

I literally own all of the PS3 games that the Customer Appreciation Program listed. Will some sort of alternate reward be offered or will I miss out because I’m bought too many games?

Lokiroo420 said:

June 2nd, 7:19 pm

W1ZZ4_CA GREAT QUESTION, KEEP SPAMMING IT, ITS THE ONLY WAY PEOPLE WILL SEE WHAT HAPPENING. DONT LET THEM SLIDE BY WITH FALSE PROMISES AND INSUFFICIENT COMPENSATION.

LordRaoh said:

June 2nd, 7:20 pm

If anyone likes those tower defense games like pixeljunk monsters and savage moon, you must, absolutely must play comet crash.

Awesome game, I hope we can get that and more for the ngp as well.

marlyt said:

June 2nd, 7:22 pm

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.

Zorvan said:

June 2nd, 7:57 pm

LOL

People excited about getting *free* PS+, when in fact they’re getting nothing but a few discounts, nothing they get *free* actually is *free* until they pay for it every month afterwards.

Marketing gimmick disguised as a “reward”. You guys at Sony are pathetic.

About the list of welcome back games to choose from. Will they be adding any more to choose from?. I have all those on the list, so I’m feeling a little left out. Just wanted to put that out there. I know others in the same position.

fAc3b0oKfReAk18 said:

June 2nd, 8:02 pm

Yo morgan please explain me this “Escalation Mission Pack add-on becomes available for free starting June” 3.

Don’t bother with the second Deathspank game. It’s terrible. The first game is awesome, definately buy that one.

The guns ruin Thongs. You can’t eat your food because you’re constantly getting shot at from off screen.
