PSN Store Offline, PS3 Gamers waiting for Welcome Back Package

By Alan Ng - May 16, 2011

As we mentioned earlier, it looks as if Sony are still not ready to resume full operation of the PlayStation Network, as we can confirm that the PlayStation Store remains offline in the US and UK, despite the fact that online gaming is now available on the PlayStation 3.

This of course means that PS3 owners have to wait to buy or download any content from the store, but more importantly for millions of users, it also means that we have to play the waiting game again for when Sony release their ‘welcome back package’ for users.

It would have been nice if the free content (30 Day PSN+ Subscription, free game and region-specific content) was there to greet owners the minute that Sony switched the online servers back on, but obviously they are not ready to do that just yet.

Are you disappointed about this, or are you just happy that you can play the likes of Call of Duty, Portal 2, Mortal Kombat and other great games online? We’re hoping that Sony will release their welcome back package at the end of the week, but we have a feeling that it could be some time before gamers can get their free loot.

What are your thoughts on this? Are you disappointed that you don’t have the welcome back package yet?
