PlayStation Network 'Welcome Back' Content Now Available

June 3, 2011 -

Sony's Welcome Back program content is now available to PlayStation Network users. For the PlayStation Network and the PlayStation Store being down for nearly a month, Sony is offering consumers an apology in the form of two free games for the PS3 and two free games for the PlayStation Portable. Here's the message Sony posted on its PlayStation blog:

"We’re so excited to welcome you back to PlayStation Network. With the PlayStation Store back online, we’ve been getting all caught up this week, having launched an abundance of amazing content for download on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable devices across games, movies, themes and DLC. Today, we’re excited to launch the Welcome Back program to thank you for your loyalty, and below, we’ve got what you need in order to get access to the included content. So, here’s a list of questions about the program. If you don’t see your question below, mention it in the comments and we’ll do our best to provide an answer. Thanks again for your patience and understanding as we restored the PlayStation Network and Qriocity services – your support has meant a lot to us and is greatly appreciated."

 

The blog post goes on to recap the free games that are available for PS3 and PSP owners, along with step-by-step instructions on how to get them. PlayStation 3 users can choose two games from a list of five: Dead Nation, inFAMOUS, LittleBigPlanet, Super Stardust HD, or Wipeout HD + Fury. PSP owners can get two games from the following five possibilities: LittleBigPlanet (PSP), ModNation Racers, Pursuit Force, or Killzone Liberation.

Remember that you can also gain access to 30 days of PlayStation Plus, SCEA's premium content services for PlayStation Network users. Free content for Home is also available. All the details on the Welcome Back program can be found here.

InFamous is such a dandy game.  I'm really surprised they are offering it up for free to be honest.  I'll be counting the seconds until the sequel.

Re: PlayStation Network 'Welcome Back' Content Now Available

It and Dead Nation were my two choices, and I quickly saw I that I chose right for me. Dead Nation is awesome.

Re: PlayStation Network 'Welcome Back' Content Now Available

I'm glad they are, InFamous was a game i've always wanted since i got my PS3 back in january, but always ended up taking backseat to another game.

Now my pushing back has paid off i guess.

Re: PlayStation Network 'Welcome Back' Content Now Available

and I already own every single one of those. 

Re: PlayStation Network 'Welcome Back' Content Now Available

And I don´t want anyone of those, lol.

Re: PlayStation Network 'Welcome Back' Content Now Available

ok for anybody else who has they downloads disappear on them do this.

 

" go to Account management > transaction management > service list > SCEA promotions and download it there." 

Re: PlayStation Network 'Welcome Back' Content Now Available

I tried to get my first free game and there was an error and the offer disappeared and I can not get the game I tried to get. Somewhere in my head I picture Sony saying "Gottcha bitch!" 

Re: PlayStation Network 'Welcome Back' Content Now Available

My brother was wondering the other day if that meant that he gets 2 games all together or 4 games (2 for PS3 and 2 for PSP). 

Re: PlayStation Network 'Welcome Back' Content Now Available

2 games for each platform, even if you get/got a PS3 or a PSP during the downtime.  It's as long as you had a PSN account before 4/20/11.  Fair warning, the store is pretty sketchy as there are many people accessing it at once.

Thanks for the information.

MaskedPixelanteSteam is going to start charging us Canadians in CAD. This is bad news... for people who don't use key sellers like GMG and GamersGate.10/01/2014 - 7:23am
InfophileSomething weird was going on with that comment. As soon as I posted it, it looked like it had replies from the past. And now I can't even find it. Ah well, it was getting off-topic for that thread anyway.10/01/2014 - 4:29am
Sleaker@CraigR been using Win8.1 for a while, I don't really see any usability difference between it and 7 (Work uses 7)10/01/2014 - 2:16am
Craig R.Ok, my internal debate was short-lived. If Win10 is still a year out, I'm not waiting that long for an SSD, so on Win7 I will remain.09/30/2014 - 7:52pm
Matthew Wilsonits called windows 10, and I am happy to get the start menu back.09/30/2014 - 7:18pm
Jessy HartIs this stuff about Windows 10 legit? Is it actually called Windows 10 or is it just some stupid joke?09/30/2014 - 6:57pm
ZippyDSMleeSo I been trying to play Bioshock Infinite I got all the DLC,ect but do not want the extras to make your charatcer over powered from the start.....they force you to take them which is quite annoying......09/30/2014 - 6:45pm
Craig R.I need to upgrade to an SSD, still seriously debating moving to Win8.1 from 7 at the same time09/30/2014 - 6:07pm
Craig R.Win10 is probably Win8.1 with more cleanup and the Start button back.09/30/2014 - 6:06pm
