Posted by on May 16th, 2011 | 4 Comments | Tags:

US Playstation blog detailed the North American “Welcome Back” program today. Whats that mean for you? Free. Stuff.

If you’re an existing PSN user in North America you’ll have the choice of two of these games:

Dead Nation
-Super Stardust HD
-Wipeout HD + Fury

The only catch is that you have to snag them within 30 days of the store being up. Not a big deal.

If you have a PSP, you also are eligible for two games from this list:

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

In addition to the games, Sony is also offering up:

  • 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.

The blog also outlined that having missed three Tuesday Updates to the store, we’re going to be getting multiple updates per week once the store is back as to catch up.  We’ll be covering this as we hear more information.

And for a Japanese PSN fans out there, it looks like you’re still gonna be waiting for a bit.  Today a Japanese regulatory official stated that services will remain halted until Sony details more of its anti-hacking measures.  Sorry to be the bearer of bad news on that front.  As always, we’ll keep you posted as soon as we hear more.
