Sony's PlayStation Welcome Back Program Now Online

Good to it's word Sony has launched the Sony Welcome Back program today offering all those affected by the recent hacking and subsequent outages free games and other perks. PSN users will have until July 3 to take advantage of the program so you better hurry up and get in on the offer while the getting is good! Side note to that Sony has warned that due to high traffic volumes users are experiencing issues so you might want to wait until after the weekend.

What’s in the Welcome Back Program?

To start, all PSN members who had signed up before the outage (April 20, 2011) will be able to select two games for the PS3 system and two games for the PSP system.
For PS3 owners, go to the ‘Welcome Back’ section in the PlayStation Store, and select 2 titles from the following list:
  • Dead Nation
  • inFAMOUS
  • LittleBigPlanet
  • Super Stardust HD
  • Wipeout HD + Fury
For PSP owners, go to the ‘Welcome Back’ section of PlayStation Store on your PSP system and select 2 titles from the following list:
  • LittleBigPlanet (PSP)
  • ModNation Racers
  • Pursuit Force
  • Killzone Liberation
Select your first game from “Game 1”, then return to the Welcome Back page and go to “Game 2” to select your second game out of the remaining choices available. This goes for both PS3 and PSP.

All users can also take advantage of a free month of PlayStation Plus service. This premium offering comes with exclusive games, demos, and discounts on purchased content. Sony is also providing some free streaming movie rentals this weekend where video services are available.
