With the PlayStation Network slowly coming back to life, but some aspects of the service are still down. Mainly the PlayStation Store, which has no definite time-table for when it will be back up, but when it does, we all get a little gift from Sony for the trouble that has been caused by the PSN being taken offline, and our personal information being leaked.
This package will be made available to all existing registered PlayStation Network and Qriocity users in North America (US and Canada), and will be made available shortly after we have fully restored the service. More specific details about these offers and eligibility requirements will be posted as the services go live.
Some of you expected them to offer us some little known PSN game as a compensation, well, actually no. We will get to download two games of our choice from the list of possible games. We will have access to these games for 30 days once the PSN Store comes back online. Then they will no longer be free to download.
For those of use who own a PS3 will be able to chose two games from this list.
- Dead Nation
- Super Stardust HD
- Wipeout HD + Fury
Those without a PS3, but own a PSP, will be able to choose two games from this list.
- LittleBigPlanet (PSP)
- ModNation Racers
- Pursuit Force
- Killzone Liberation
But wait there’s more!
- 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.
Not bad at all for PSN being down for around 24 days. While yeah, the games on the list are not brand new, they are better than most out there. So once the PSN Store comes back online, be sure to get your ass online and download the two games you want, they won’t be free forever!
