We finally have confirmation on what we’ll be getting in the US as part of the “Welcome Back” initiative put in effect by Sony. As expected, the list is the same as the one posted on the European PS Blog (except for Germany; the EU also gets Ratchet and Clank: Quest for Booty in place of Super Stardust HD) but it is nice to KNOW what our choices will be.
Here’s all we’ll be getting:
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 (Pick me!)
- inFAMOUS (Pick me as well!)
- LittleBigPlanet (I can create new watchamacallits. No wait, come back, don’t look at my sequel!)
- Super Stardust HD (I’m fun, but you can’t beat zombies and a full retail game)
- Wipeout HD + Fury (I race. And I race gooood)
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 (Smaller watchamacallits on the go)
- ModNation Racers (Big headed racing on your hand)
- Pursuit Force (More cars!)
- Killzone Liberation (War, huh, what is it good for?)
Here are some other things we’ll be getting:
- 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.
So, is it worth the wait without online, and is what we’ll wait for when the PSN Store comes back?
