PSN Outage Over: Free PS3 and PSP Games For All Existing Members

Yesterday Sony switched backed on the Playstation Network to allow people to change their password and play online multiplayer games among other things (the full list of services as detailed by Sony is at the end). And today they have detailed what sort of rewards will be given to existing Playstation Network customer (official blog post) for the almost month long downtime. The options are 2 free PS3 games and 2 free PSP games along with freebies for their other services such as Playstation Home, movie rentals and PS+. The choice of games for Europe and Australia/NZ are:

  • PS3 – Little Big Planet, Infamous, Wipeout HD (Plus expansion pack Wipeout Fury), Ratchet and Clank: Quest for Booty, and Dead Nation.
  • PSP – Little Big Planet PSP, ModNation Racers PSP, Pursuit Force and Killzone Liberation.
For North America the only difference is Ratchet and Clank is replaced with Super Stardust HD. The Playstation Store has not been restored yet but is expected to be back online within a week or so.
In addition to the games you will get one month trial or 60 day addition for Playstation Plus. It’s no surprise that the choice of games come from Sony’s closest developers and publishers but there is a good range of high quality games. Personally I’m going to pick up Wipeout HD and R&C for the PS3 and LBP and ModNations Racers for the PSP.

Q: So what exactly is working right now?
A: Sign-in for PlayStation Network and Qriocity (including the resetting of passwords), online gameplay for PS3 and PSP, playback of rental video content on PS3 (if within rental period), Music Unlimited powered by Qriocity on PS3 (for current subscribers), access to services such as Netflix, Hulu, Vudu, and MLB.tv, “Friends” category on PS3 (including Friends List, Chat Functionality, Trophy Comparison, etc), in-game leaderboards, and PlayStation Home.
