PSN's back up. How to get your free games

Welcome back ...


After an extended *break,* Sony's PlayStation Store is back and it's time to get their free peace offerings.

Here's some info off their Web site:

For PS3 owners, go to the ‘Welcome Back’ section in the PlayStation Store, and select 2 titles from the following list:

* Dead Nation
* 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.


Not only is Sony giving gamers free games (4 of them if you own a PS3 and a PSP), but they are offering:

1. A year of security protection (credit monitoring)
2. A free month of PlayStation Plus membership
3. Free swag for us in PlayStation Home

Plus, if you are a PlayStation Plus subscriber, your account will be given an additional 60 days for free. Not bad, Sony.

This is a great olive branch that Sony's extending to correct a wrong. It's kind of hard to stay mad at Sony with all of the free swag. The real question in my mind is - can something like this happen again?

What we're rockin'

This weekend, it's all about prerelease sweetness. I'll be playing some Infamous 2, Operation Flashpoint: Red River, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D and logging some time with my Avenger exoskeleton and a Calibur11 Vault. It's gonna be a scorcher this weekend, so trust - I'll have a lot of time indoors.

Be safe, folks.
