Sony has already talked quite a bit about its plans to compensate users for the downtime. However, Patrick Seybold, Senior Director of corporate communications and Social Media at Sony, yesterday took to the PlayStation blog to detail in full the compensation packages for U.S. users.
First of all, all PSN customers will be offered two free games of their choice from the following list:
- Dead Nation
- Super Stardust HD
- Wipeout HD + Fury
PSP users will also get two games. Their choices are the following:
- ModNation Racers
- Pursuit Force
- Killzone Liberation
As far as both platforms are concerned, the games will become available when the PlayStation Store is restored and will remain available for 30 days. Once you’ve downloaded your two games, you’ll be able to keep them forever.
In addition to a couple of free games, everyone is getting 30 free days of PlayStation Plus (existing PlayStation Plus subscribers will get 60 days free). Music Unlimited Premium Trial subscription members will receive an additional 30 days of free premium subscription while existing Music Unlimited Premium/Basic members will get 30 days plus time lost. PlayStation Home will be offering 100 free virtual items as a ‘welcome back,’ and Sony will be making a selection of movie rental titles available to PSN customers for one weekend (where Video Service is available). Details of the titles and dates for this offer have yet to be released.
Are these freebies enough to pacify you, or are you still angry at the way Sony handled the disruption to service? Let us know in the comments below!
