All right, follow PSN users, the PSN is now offering a small amount of free stuff
as an apology for everything going screwy a while back.
There happens to be a bug running rampant where after selecting a required option before picking a game, it will instead vanish and not let you choose. Well, if that happens, here's a fun fix I learned from a glorious man:
(If, at any step, you run into an error message, just try it again)
Go back to the XMB and select Account Management
Then, select Transaction Management
Select Services List, then SCEA Promotion
You'll be able to download your free games from there.
In case anyone is wondering, for my first game, I chose Infamous. Still trying to decide my next game, probably Little Big Planet.
