Sony Announces Details Of Welcome Back Package For PlayStation Network Users

By  |  1 Comment

Sony today released details of their PSN ‘Welcome Back’ package for North American customers, with free games the order of the day and PlayStation Plus service.

Playstation Network

Offered to angry & disgruntling customers as a thank you for sticking with the beleaguered company through their horrid PlayStation Network affair, Sony is offering a free month’s subscription to their PlayStation Plus PSN upgrade for users who don’t currently subscribe. Existing customers will have a month’s usage added to their account free of charge.

Most interesting is the offer of two free games to download from a list of 5 for PlayStation 3 owners and 4 for PSP owners. There is no mention about whether owners of both consoles can take a total of 4 free games though, so we’ll have to wait and see how that pans out.

The games available (for North American gamers, remember) are:


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


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

Alongside the offer of free games and a PS Plus subscription, Sony is also offering an “On Us” weekend where a selection of movies will be available for free to watch. Available Titles have not yet been announced (at time of post).

Fans of Sony’s PlayStation Home will be happy to hear the company is also giving away 100 free virtual items for your enjoyment.

Sony fans in North America can read the full press release here, while European and Latin American users should check their respective PlayStation blog posts for information on what they’ll be offered.

While an after thought of free stuff is always welcome, we keep thinking that many customers would of rather had Sony just prevented the security hole in the first place.

People need to start putting security first, not as a afterthought when zerodays happen. *sigh*
