PlayStation Home welcome back package, PSN errors and free stuff

By Updated on

The PSN downtime has not been as dramatic for every PS3 owner, and some people have only just logged on to the PlayStation Network after hearing that the Store is back up and there is a “Welcome Back” package waiting for them, although this claim for freebies is not so simple.

We’ve had reports, as in our earlier post, that users are getting PSN errors when trying to access the PS Store. Refreshing or continued effort seems to fix the problem, which is caused by too many users trying to connect to PSN at one time. This worked for us in our test.

In the last 24-hours Sony have released details of their PlayStation Home ‘Welcome Back” program. Sony wants to say thank you to those that stick by the brand, which seems to be most of the user base. We agree that Sony could have dealt with this hacking disaster in a better way, but the effort they’re making now is good news for those that are sticking by them, although the freebies are not perfect by any means. Feel free to share your feelings in the comments.

Step one in the PlayStation Home customer appreciation program looks good, which includes an exclusive game download, two personal spaces, and 100 free items. To find out exactly what Sony is giving away and when, see this article.

Check out the new freebies via the above link, and then let us know what you think of the PlayStation Home welcome back package, and tell us if you’re still seeing PSN errors?

    Its all good and well sony giving free stuff away but the downside is the fact that sony have been hacked again but sony music this time.Yesterday after the long anticipated arrival of the free games i logged onto the the store after 3 attempts. I decided to get infamous or at least try and 3 things happend #No.1 the error which is understandable because of the amount of line traffic. #No.2 I selected the welcome back package to get infamous and then another error so had to exit and get back onto the store loan and behold package had vanished and finally # No. 3 the store is now saying the content can’t be accessed on my email account but it didnt have a problem then was forced to make a new email adress but still had the same psn name and everything. Sony fix it once and for all.

      go to playstation store
      select welcome back category
      choose PS3 free game 1 or 2 download the first item which is your token.
      Now I errorred out at this step and my entry disappeared. I had to go to the XMB, then toPlaystation Network > Account Management > Transaction Management > Services List > SCEA Promotions and then the free game tokens were here, and upon selecting the free game I was taken to the list of 5 to get for free via the PSN store. Hope this helps
