Since the PlayStation Network first started to be restored, many gamers were wondering when they would start getting details of the free downloads which were promised a while back. Now finally Sony reveals the Welcome Back Package details.
Nick Caplin has posted on the PlayStation Blog the full details of what you will be getting courtesy of Sony. The PlayStation Store is yet to be restored so you won’t be able to get your free gifts just yet, but he says that will be “a little while longer”.
The package will only be available for countries that normally have access to the PlayStation Store. You have the choice of two PS games from LittleBigPlanet, Dead Nation, Wipeout HD/Fury, Infamous, and Ratchet and Clank: Quest for Booty.
If you have a PSP account you also get to choose from two of the following games LittleBigPlanet PSP, Pursuit Force, Killzone Liberation, and ModNation PSP. You also get thirty free days of PlayStation Plus membership if you are not already a subscriber. Existing subscribers will be given sixty days free.
Users who already subscribe to Music Unlimited will be offered thirty days free membership, and there will be some more offers with PlayStation Home. Caplin goes on to thank developers and publishers for helping with the package.
Whether this will please most PS3 owners remains to be seen, but at least current subscribers to PlayStation Plus get an extra thirty days compared to non-subscribers. Have Sony done enough to satisfy you?
