PSN Welcome Back page is Live, kinda buggy

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.

Wipeout! Everyone is choosing Wipeout! Am I the only one who didn't choose Wipeout?

Also LBP does have online features through the PSN download. I get leaderboards every time I finish a level and it offers to let me play with other people.

I've been itching to play a racing game and didn't have the money for ModNation Racers, so it works for me.

Picked up that and Dead Nation. I will blowing off zombie heads with a boomstick before this night is over.

We are, actually. I know I got my free access.

NiteStar wrote:Im not understanding what were really being offered. :???:


Four free games (Two for PS3, two for PSP), one month of Playstation Plus, and a few other free odds and ends.

I'm kind of digging Dead Nation so far. It has online Co-op right? We should arrange something.

My PS3 finally accepted the new firmware and I'm operational now.

I need to finish redoing my PSN account stuff and I'll be good to go for multiplayer.

Well I dont have a PSP so I only get two. Now Playstation Plus I think I got access to. Is it that menu with all the games priced in YELLOW ? And some of them are not free but half/discounted price? For example there are two God of Wars that I would like to get but they are both 14.99. Is that the Playstation Plus access?

Yeah, if the price is in yellow, that's the price Plus users pay. Though apparently any of the free stuff you can't keep once your subscription runs out, though I don't know if that applies to the paid-stuff.
