PSN: The "Welcome Back(OMG we're so sorry) Pack"

I apologize for the short post last night my fellow LaGers, I wasn't feeling too well and my throat was killing me. I couldn't get much sleep either, I woke up every odd hour. It was NOT fun. But alas, as I am still a little sick, I'm back to post for you guys. I'll go to the doctor today to see what's up.

OK, now for the matter at hand: Sony said a while back that they would be releasing a welcome back package for everyone that was affected by the PSN outage. They said free games were to be downloadable  and that 30 day free Playstation Plus membership was to be had by all. I for one think it's a brilliant way to get our trust back.

Sony announced the different games that will be sold to each region. Here is said list of games up for download. (Remember: you can only download 2 of the 5 for your PS3, and 2 of the 4 for your PSP)

PS3 DL's for USA and Latin America:
  • Dead Nation
  • inFAMOUS
  • LittleBigPlanet
  • Super Stardust HD
  • Wipeout HD + Fury
PS3 DL's for Europe:
  • LittleBigPlanet
  • Infamous*
  • Wipeout HD/Fury
  • Ratchet and Clank: Quest for Booty
  • Dead Nation*
 And let's not forget about the PSP users. ALL the DL's for PSP are the same.

PSP Games up for DL:

  • LittleBigPlanet (PSP®)
  • ModNation Racers
  • Pursuit Force
  • Killzone Liberation
Well played Sony, well played indeed. You already got my trust. I know I'm going to download Dead Nation and LBP. I was planning to do it soon actually, regardless of the free-ness. Thanks Sony :P

What games are you guys going to get if you're a PSN User? If you aren't one: what do you think about all this? Comment and discuss!

I'm off to finish Dante's Inferno. LaG on.



  1. Wow this is nice. Too bad I don't have a gaming console =(

  2. I think the free games are an awesome idea, but not everyone's going to like them. They should offer a credit to use in the store as well.

  3. Well at least they did something

  4. I need to look some of those games up to see if I'm going to download them.. although if they are free, I probably will. I feel like Sony is bribing us for our trust. Well I don't feel, it's pretty obvious!

  5. inFAMOUS and LittleBigPlanet
    I need them to get the store back up so I can get my preordered L.A. Noire freebies downloaded!

  6. When I get my PSP back in working order I think I'll grab LBP and Killzone. It's been years since I've played an actual PSP game on the thing.

  7. That's actually pretty awesome customer service. If I had a PS I'd totally get Little Big Planet XD

  8. wow, little big planet for free? damn

  9. This is the good news.. bad news is I heard that it went down again today. Bleh, called it!

  10. Well... hrm... all those XBL jokes I made... well shit.

  11. all i cared about was psn getting back up, its good that they're giving stuff out though lol

  12. at least they are trying to say sorry.
