After having restored the Playstation Network in most areas of the world, Sony has shed some light on the compensation it will offer to the millions of consumers that have been hit by the outage. Aside from the 30 days of Playstation Plus service that had already been promised and several other offers, it has also identified specifically which games will be offered to users.

Playstation users will be able to obtain two Playstation 3 games for free. They may choose from the following titles:

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

Playstation Portable users are also eligible for two free titles, and may select these from the following list:

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

For both the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable, the offer will be avialable for 30 days following the relaunch of the Playstation Store, which is expected to be restored before the end of the month.

The ‘Welcome back package’ will also include a collection of free Playstation Home items, as well as access to a collection of free streamable films during an upcoming weekend.

  1. Well it is good to know what they are offering. Europe has a few substitutions for their plan, and all PSN+ subscribers will get 60 days free extension to their subscription.

    1. Yep, 60 days of PS+, 30+downtime for music unlimited for people already subscribed.

      30 days of PS+ and 30 days of music unlimited forpeople not subscribed.

      Also “Hundreds of free items for Home” and a selection of free movie rentals through the service for a weekend.

      1. I was merely adding in what wasn’t stated in this news report. I want to know what is in the Home bundle. I heard there will be a space you can get, but I am unsure if that is entirely true.

        What I am happy about though, is that they are doing multiple PSN store updates a week to catch up on the missed updates.
