PSN "welcome back" program

Gamers can select two of the five following PlayStation 3 games:

  • Dead Nation
  • Infamous
  • LittleBigPlanet
  • Super Stardust HD
  • WipeOut HD + Fury

Those with PSPs can also cop two of four following PSP games:

  • LittleBigPlanet PSP
  • ModNation Racers PSP
  • Pursuit Force
  • Killzone Liberation

Additionally, the PlayStation faithful can look forward to the following:

  • "A selection of 'On Us' rental movie titles" for use on a single weekend. The weekend in question and the titles available have yet to be determined.
  • Non-PlayStation Plus subscribers get 30 free days of PlayStation Plus.
  • Existing PlayStation Plus subscribers get 60 free days of PlayStation Plus.

Australian and European gamers are going to get Ratchet & Clank: Quest For Booty in lieu of Super Stardust HD.

Any thoughts on this? I have been watching a lot of forums. Overall, most people seem pretty happy about the offer. The potential loss of credit card info still bugs me, from from a 'loss of free service' - well, this seems like a pretty generous offering as well. What do you think?

Myself - I already have LBP and Infamous (still need to play both more) - so I will likely pick up Super Star Dust and Wipeout HD. I don't have a ton of hard drive space left on my PS3, but I'll make room.

The PSP games are a bit trickier. I currently only have a 1 gb memory stick I got when I bought the unit. I haven't downloaded any games to it so far due to the memory limitations. I'm tempted to pick up a 4gb stick and grab Killzone and... dunno about the 2nd game. I've been eying Killzone for awhile anyway though, so this may push me over into getting the necessary memory stick to hold it.



  1. I think Sony's done a good job with this pack to apologise to PlayStation faithful. The games are good, the extras are good, and now we have a far more secure PSN to look forward to.

    I really don't like the people who have been whining about the games offered. Gamers can be a miserable bunch - just because the "welcome back" pack doesn't appeal to you personally, doesn't make it bad value.

    I have two PSN accounts, and two PSP Gos. I guess that means eight games? Unless I have to chose between PSN and PSPGo, because my two PSN accounts are also attached to the Go.

    Oh well. I get to play the free stuff they offer the Japanese gamers too, because I have one of those accounts too :)

  2. @Games - niiiice, sounds like you have plenty of free games coming. Kind of wonder what happens with say, my house. Do I pick 2 games and does my wife get to pick 2 others? I mean, we already have 2 of the 5 offered, but I'm sort of curious how all of that will 'verify out' so to speak, you know? I mean, technically, if every PSN person gets to pick 2, I have 5 people w/ accounts here. Will the other people have 'access' to the game? It's going to be pretty interesting to see how it all pans out.

    and I agree - lots of whining. Now, I admit, for people who maybe have all of those games, and I know one person who does have all of the ps3 games and 3 of the 4 PSP games, not as good of a deal. But that's definitely the exception and not the rule.
