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.

MechaCrashWas she saying "I haven't experienced it," or "I haven't experienced it therefore it does not exist"?04/24/2015 - 8:31pm
ZippyDSMleeoy the skyrim paid mod thing is going over well. My 2 lints, I would not mind if Skyrim had a full SDK and not a crappy lil editor....04/24/2015 - 6:46pm
Andrew EisenWell, that is indeed crappy and nonsensical.04/24/2015 - 3:45pm
Matthew Wilsonshe got attacked for saying that she personaly has not experienced the harassment some other female devs have, and she got acused of defending GG and ignoring harassment. she ended up getting dog piled because of it.04/24/2015 - 3:43pm
Andrew EisenFine but do you recall ANY details at all?04/24/2015 - 3:38pm
Matthew Wilsonit was several weeks ago now, and I will admit to not saving it.04/24/2015 - 3:36pm
Andrew EisenAttacked HOW and by WHOM for not writing off WHO as evil? Do you have a link or anything?04/24/2015 - 3:31pm
Matthew Wilsonthat is the whole point she was not attacked for saying anything. she was attacked for being willing to debate in the first place, and not just write them off as evil.04/24/2015 - 3:28pm
Andrew EisenI know there's not a lot of room in the Shout box but goodness you're being vague.04/24/2015 - 3:26pm
Andrew EisenGreat, but that STILL doesn't tell me what she said, why she was attacked (or what the attack was) or what "standard line" she's following. Details, man. Details!04/24/2015 - 3:25pm
Andrew EisenOr what the heck Nina White (someone else I've never heard of) is actually referring to.04/24/2015 - 3:24pm
