PSN Welcome Back Package includes 2 PS3 and PSP games

It is almost guaranteed that you didn’t see this coming. Sony hinted that they would be including a free game or two in their “Welcome Back Package” once the PSN was restored, but this is pretty generous.

According to a post on the official PlayStation Blog, each PSN user will be entitled to a total of 4 games, two PS3 and two PSP titles. The list of games to choose from is small, but the quality is there. Here is the full US line-up:

All PlayStation Network customers can select two PS3 games from the following list. The games will be available for 30 days shortly after PlayStation Store is restored and can be kept forever.

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

For PSP owners, you will be eligible to download two PSP games from the following list. The games will be available for 30 days shortly after PlayStation Store is restored and can be kept forever.

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

These free titles will be redeemable via the PSN store only, no physical copies will be distributed. It is also worth noting that the titles in the EU are slightly different with Ratchet and Clank: Quest for Booty in place of Super Stardust on PS3.

Also, as mentioned before, Sony is also offering free service periods and in-game items. They detailed this as well:

  • A selection of “On Us” rental movie titles will be available to PlayStation Network customers over one weekend, where Video Service is available. Those titles will be announced soon.
  • 30 days free PlayStation Plus membership for non PlayStation Plus subscribers.
  • Existing PlayStation Plus subscribers will receive an additional 60 days of free subscription.
  • Existing Music Unlimited Premium Trial subscription members will receive an additional 30 days of free premium subscription.
  • Additional 30 days + time lost for existing members of Music Unlimited Premium/Basic subscription free of charge for existing Premium/Basic members.
  • To welcome users Home, PlayStation Home will be offering 100 free virtual items. Additional free content will be released soon, including the next addition to the Home Mansion personal space, and Ooblag’s Alien Casino, an exclusive game.

All of this will be made available as full PSN services are returned. This is a pretty generous overall offering, and with PSN services returning as we speak, it is hard not to feel good about how Sony is handling the situation at this point.
