Free PS3 games offered in PSN Welcome Back package

Has Sony done enough to say sorry?

Sony has announced its Welcome Back package which includes a pick of two free PS3 games as it begins to restore online services.

It is almost 25 days since the PlayStation Network and associated services were hacked by as yet an unknown source and now Sony is trying to make it up to users by offering two of the following games for free:

- LittleBigPlanet
- Infamous
- Wipeout HD/Fury
- Ratchet and Clank: Quest for Booty
- Dead Nation

Additionally, non PlayStation Plus subscribers will get 30 days free access to the service which regularly includes exclusive games and other PS3-related content. If you're already a PlayStation Plus subscriber, you'll get 60 free days subscription to make up for that precious online time lost, while Sony says it is working to compensate PlayStation Home users also.

If you've got a PSP account, you can download two PSP games from a list which includes LittleBigPlanet, ModNation, Pursuit Force and Killzone Liberation. Music Unlimited subscribers will also get 30 days free subscription.

All can be accessed from the PlayStation Store, which at the time of writing is still yet to go live.

The PSN outage has obviously caused something of a stir and you the T3 readers, have been having your say in the social networking world.

T3 Facebook fan Maharg Snikliw commented: "Having being a Sony fan for many a year, it has left me with a lot of doubt's, i have been using the Xbox over the past 4 weeks, whilst I was waiting to get back online with PSN, but it has definitely made me think about which platform to carry on in the long term, and I am a Playstation Plus paid member"

Alternatively, not all have been put off by the PSN downtime with fellow T3 Facebooker Ryan Seymour saying: "I'll stick with Playstation through thick and thin. This whole episode hasn't really bothered me. I've been too busy to go online anyway and I trust Sony to learn from their mistakes. Life goes on eh!!!"

Have you been put off buying a PlayStation console in the future after the PSN outage? Let us know your thoughts via Facebook and Twitter.
