Sony is as expected giving out the free Ps Plus and 5 free games. These games are:
Dead Nation
inFAMOUS
LittleBigPlanet
Super Stardust HD
Wipeout HD + Fury

Users get to choose from 2 of them. PSP users also get some games but you can read the article for that. Good thing my brother and sister both have PSN accounts as well so I can get the other games too. If we can't i'm getting Dead Nation and inFAMOUS. what about you guys or how do you feel about this 'Welcome Back' program.

How do I feel? Kinda cheated, but also I know that this is the best of the best and that's exactly why I have nearly all of them(Might have Super Stardust HD, not sure). Not sure what I'll get if I end up having them all. Might just get the two retail games and keep them for trips or something.

PSP wise I feel a little better, as Killzone and Pursuit Force are two I don't have, with one I was going to look for.

But I'm not going to complain much, got two more months to my Plus subscription which means at least (hopefully new) 8 minis, 4 PSOne Classics, and 4 PSN titles.

to clarify, i believe we're only allotted 2 ps3/psn titles, and the same for psp. i'm not sure though, but i don't believe we're getting all 5 listed.

also, LOL THE SECURITY GOT CIRCUMVENTED ALREADY

Wait... Does this mean you get two PSP games AND two PS3 games? In that case, sweet! Not sure what I'll choose, considering I already have inFamous and LBP (PS3), but I'm pretty stoked about this anyway. Awfully generous of Sony to do this, I must say!

i think it's a cheap way to try to regain their customers.

it isn't so much that their service was down for so long, it's that their customer's personal information, MAINLY CREDIT CARD INFO, was leaked and poorly secured. that alone makes me immediately turn away in disgust.

if you can honestly forgive them for that, my kudos to you. i can't, and won't.

It was never actually confirmed that the ones attached to PSN accounts were leaked though. And those leaked from SOE had no more than 10 active credit cards out of the 100 stolen. As for your address and phone number, what are they going to do with that crap? Mail you porn or something?

i'd like some sauce @ second sentence
address is one thing, that's just kinda creepy they have it.. but phone number and other information can easily be sold to companies who make their business on information sales, as far as i'm concerned.

and that a loophole in the security via the already-stolen information has already been found is.. either kind of unnerving, or just embarrassing on sony's half.. imo. at least they stopped that, fast. talking about being able to reset the password without a email confirmation or something by putting in the birthday and email field.

I want to get LittleBigPlanet and Killzone: Liberation for my PSP, but I can't check the store cause my PSP's dead and I'm using its charger to power my internet router :S confound the crappy router...

I got Modnation Racers for the PSP... Didn't think it was worth it.

Don't know what other games to get as I have both LBPs and InFamous. Any suggestions?

Dead Nation and Stardust! o:

@Psycho: Heh, it was still fun up until the last shard. Stunts on the other hand...

To be honest, I've only played ModNation and LittleBigPlanet. LBP was alright, but the online community was just a bunch of levels designed to shut your PSP off. ;/ So I'd go with Killzone.
