We told you yesterday about the planned maintenance for the PlayStation Network for next week. Gamers are still waiting to hear when the PS Store will be back up and running so they can redeem their free games which Sony have offered. But we do have news of some PSN Welcome Back Package events which have been revealed by Sony.
CVG are reporting there are a number of competitions and tournaments amongst the planned events announced by Sony. These include some of the consoles biggest games like Killzone 3 and MotorStorm Apocalypse.
