How to claim free PS3 games from PlayStation Network as a way of apology from Sony

As like any avid PS3 fan im very keen to getting back on the PlayStation Network to play with my friends across the world, and now with the PSN back online im pleased that after a month of waiting and pondering whether to get a Xbox 360 it is finally back online.

One thing that i do know is Sony is wholeheartedly sorry of what has happened and to show how sorry they are they are giving away to PSN and PSP users 2 free games which can be downloaded from the PlayStation Network.

PS3 and PSP owners have a selection of games to download from, and if you own Both, PS3 and PSP that means you get to download 4 games, 2 for your PS3 and 2 for your PSP.

The games available for users to download for the PS3 are:

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

The games available for users to download for the PSP are:

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

To download the games you will need to go to the special Welcome Back section in the PlayStation Store on the PS3, or PSP, and follow this process: 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.

The process can be a bit tricky so check out the official Welcome Back PlayStation blog.

In addition to the giving away free games Sony is also offering access to their premium subscription service, PlayStation Plus, which includes games, huge discounts, exciting exclusives and added features like online storage and automatic downloads, to all PSN members for 30 days at no charge, requiring no long term commitment.

Current Plus subscribers will receive an extra 60 days added to their existing subscription at no charge. For current Plus subscribers, no action is needed as the 60 days are automatically added to your subscription.

PlayStation Network users will also get 100 virtual items in PlayStation Home as a show of appreciation for your patience while Home was inaccessible. Additional content is coming soon, including the next addition to the Home Mansion personal space, and Ooblag’s Alien Casino, an exclusive game.

So lets give Sony a chance to rectify this and hopefully they fix the PlayStation Network from future hackers.

Is Sony doing enough as a way of officially apologising to you PS3 and PSP fans? Leave a comment below.

    I have a 30mb connection. I downloaded Infamous and had to leave the PS3 on all night because it was expected to take over 350 minutes to download. I checked the PS3 this morning, clicked on the new Infamouse icon, only to find a message telling me there was insufficient memory for Infamous to load. I’d already deleted numerous game saves and other stuff to make enough room for the download and I feel cheated by Sony because there’s no way I will be able to download the second game I am entitled to as well. So, to cut a long story short, if like me you only own a 40gb PS3 there is no way you’ll be able to take advantage of the free games.

      How is that anyone’s fault but your own?

        Well, it shows that he bought a PS3, like everyone else, but unfortunately the capacity lets him down. Did he know we’d be offered free games for download in the future? No.

    • Hyejoelpki

      if you go on account management and go to transaction history, it should say services list. click on it and it should say something like ps3 free games click on that and it should take you to the games page

      I tried the same yesterday somehow it possible to download the same game twice, and then you won´t be able to download the second game.

      • Sabortooth13

        same thing happen to me how did that even happen xbox dont have issues like that

  • Zainalam

    these games are absolutely useless and rubbish, Sony could of at least put effort in for the types of games they are giving and on top of that they take hours to download. They really need to sort this out

    I think this is a very good we are sorry gift.  I don’t remember Xbox doing much of jack for the Red Rings other than making you wait for them to fix your system!

    Sony are bastards!!  Give evrybody in the states and Europe free games but screw the rest of the world. I live in brazil and Playstation store is not available in my country so cannot access these free games.

    I didn’t realise there was a time limit to download the games, so I missed out on them. So no, I don’t think Sony did enough.

    You can still choose your free games

  • F Islam

    Firstly, you will have to go to account management then transaction management you should then find an icon saying services list. Then click the offer and you should get a choice from 4 – 5 games. PLEASE NOTE: Your account must’ve been created BEFORE the hacks occured
