May 17, 2011 -

Sony announced via its PlayStation Blog details on the games it will offer for free as part of its "Welcome Back appreciation program."

North American PlayStation Network users will get to choose two games from a list of five games, which Sony claims are BD compatible. They are:

-Dead Nation
-inFAMOUS
-LittleBigPlanet
-Super Stardust HD
-Wipeout HD + Fury

These games will be available for 30 days (to download) after the return of the PlayStation Store, which Sony plans to relaunch soon.

PSP owners with a PSN account can download two games from a choice of four, which will also be available for 30 days after the relaunch of the PlayStation Store: They are:

-LittleBigPlanet (PSP)
-ModNation Racers
-Pursuit Force
-Killzone Liberation

Sony also said that it will offer a number of "on us" movies "over the weekend." Those titles will be announced soon.

Subscribers to various services on PSN will get additional time, and all PSN users will get 30 days of PlayStation Plus. Read the whole thing here. It should be noted that when your PlayStation Plus subscription runs out you lose access to anything you have downloaded / purchased.

The comments on the official blog post are both funny and sad. I speak of course of those who are bitching about the content being offered.

Re: Sony Reveals 'Welcome Back Appreciation Program' ...

I know, right? Some entitled jerks think they're owed everything. You get something for free, and you look a gift horse in the mouth.

Personally, I'm looking forward to picking up InFAMOUS and LBP.

Re: Sony Reveals 'Welcome Back Appreciation Program' ...

I already have LPB so I don't know what I'll pick bedies inFAMOUS, which I am VERY glad I didn't buy at Gamestop the day before the service came back on.

 

Might consider Wipeout or Dead Nation.

 

The crux of this is that sony didn't have to offer anything.

E. Zachary KnightNot sure on that specific. But It is slightly annoying, but it can help to clairfy on occasion.04/21/2015 - 10:13am
IvresseCan I just ask out of curiousity why people repeat the title in their shout when it clearly states it in the URL?04/21/2015 - 9:07am
E. Zachary KnightI would say that is true. It drives me nuts when games are patched. The closer the patch is to launch, the worse it is.04/21/2015 - 9:06am
