Sony Reveals “Welcome Back” Games *American Version*

Finally, North America finds out what free junk we get for our troubles.

Disgruntled Playstation Network gamers have been hearing about the “Welcome Back” program for a while now, and there’s been a lot of speculation as to which free games will be offered once PSN comes completely back online. Well, speculate no more my friends! Playstation has enlightened us. PS3 owners can choose 2 games from the following list:

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

And PSP owners can choose 2 from this list:

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

The blog posting states that the games will be available for download for a period of 30 days.

 

In addition to the free games Sony also states they will offer these other goodies (as posted on the Playstation Blog:

  • A selection of “On Us” rental movie titles will be available to PlayStation Network customers over one weekend, where Video Service is available. Those titles will be announced soon.
  • 30 days free PlayStation Plus membership for non PlayStation Plus subscribers.
  • Existing PlayStation Plus subscribers will receive an additional 60 days of free subscription.
  • Existing Music Unlimited Premium Trial subscription members will receive an additional 30 days of free premium subscription.
  • Additional 30 days + time lost for existing members of Music Unlimited Premium/Basic subscription free of charge for existing Premium/Basic members.
  • To welcome users Home, PlayStation Home will be offering 100 free virtual items. Additional free content will be released soon, including the next addition to the Home Mansion personal space, and Ooblag’s Alien Casino, an exclusive game.

As for when all of this is going to be ready for consumption, it seems to be anyone’s guess. The blog post merely says it will be up “shortly after we have fully restored the service.”
