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.

-Ultimately what will do in mankind is a person's fear of their own freedom-

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.

MechaTama31AE: Probably snarky commentary on this: http://www.gamepolitics.com/2014/08/29/principle-player-leland-yee-arms-trading-case-dies08/30/2014 - 8:43pm
Andrew EisenConster - Don't know. Got a link to whatever you're referring to?08/30/2014 - 7:04pm
ConsterWait, what's this about Leland Yee eliminating witnesses?08/30/2014 - 5:50pm
IanCBroke my EA boycott to pick up Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare. Loving it. Still hate EA though. But i like Popcap. Gah.08/30/2014 - 6:01am

AvalongodAgain I think we're conflating the issue of whether Sarkeesian's claims are beyond critique (no they're not) and whether its ever appropriate to use sexist language, let alone physical threats on a woman to intimidate her (no it isn't)08/29/2014 - 5:04pm
prh99Trolling her or trying to assail her integrity just draws more attention (Streisand effect?). Which is really not what the trolls want, so the only way to win (if there is a win to be had) is not to play/troll.08/29/2014 - 5:02pm
prh99Who cares, just don't watch the damn videos if you don't like her. Personally, I don't care as far as she is concerned as long there are interesting games to be played.08/29/2014 - 4:34pm
Andrew EisenZip - And yet, you can't cite a single, solitary example. (And no one said you hated anyone. Along those lines, no one claimed Sarkeesian was perfect either.)08/29/2014 - 3:51pm
Andrew EisenSaint's Row: Gat Out of Hell was just announced for PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One making it the 150th game For Everything But Wii U! Congratulations Deep Silver!08/29/2014 - 3:49pm
ZippyDSMleeI do not hate them jsut think its mostly hyperlobe.08/29/2014 - 3:40pm
Andrew EisenSleaker - I'd say that's likely. From my experience, most who have a problem with Sarkeesian's videos either want to hate them in the first place (for whatever reason) or honestly misunderstand what they're about and what they're saying.08/29/2014 - 3:16pm
james_fudgeWe appreciate your support :)08/29/2014 - 2:55pm
TechnogeekIt gives me hope that maybe, just maybe, the gaming community is not statistically indistinguishable from consisting entirely of people that your average Xbox Live caricature would look at and go "maybe you should tone it down a little bit".08/29/2014 - 2:49pm
TechnogeekI just want to say that while I've disagreed with the staff of this site on several occasions, it's still good to see that they're not automatically dismissing Anita's videos as a "misandrist scam" or whatever the preferred dismissive term is these days.08/29/2014 - 2:49pm
E. Zachary KnightZippy, So you can't find even one?08/29/2014 - 1:04pm
ZippyDSMleeAndrew Eisen:Right because shes prefect and never exaggerates... *rolls eyes*08/29/2014 - 12:53pm
SleakerAnd honestly, nearly all of the games she references, or images she depicts I've always cringed at and wondered why they were included in games to begin with, from pinups through explicit sexual depictions or direct abuse. I think it's cheap storytelling.08/29/2014 - 12:35pm
Sleaker@AE - aren't most people fundamentally misunderstanding her at this point? haha.. On a related note I think a lot of the backlash is coming from males that think she is telling them their 'Generic Male Fantasy' is bad and wrong.08/29/2014 - 12:33pm
Andrew EisenAnd no, I don't think the female community would be upset over the performance of a case study in and of itself. Possibly the mostivations behind such a study, the methodology or conclusions but not the mere idea of a case study.08/29/2014 - 12:29pm
