With Sony announcing that they would be offering 2 games from a selection of 5 for free when PSN returns, how likely is it that inFAMOUS could be in that selection?
Then they better offer another gamer i dont already have as offering me what i already have as a sorry is an insult
I think they'll offer some brand new games to make sure that people get something they don't already have. But even though I've played infamous, I would DEFINITELY choose to download it, it's awesome.
I say, VERY likely considering they can use it as a marketing tool for Infamous 2. There are about 35 million active PS3 gamers around the world and less than 2 million of them own the first Infamous. It would be utter stupidity if Sony didn't offer this to us for free.
@logic - I agree, they would gain sooo many fans for the franchise.
@dangert: It's not up to Sony to figure out what you do and do not have. If you don't like what they offer up, or already have it, tough luck for you.
@DragonKnight- Well, I'm sure that chances are that MOST PS3 owners won't have ALL the five games their offering.
It's a pretty awesome game and considering that InFamous2 is going to be out soon, it's a good strategy
Not only does Sony need to offer us all this free stuff but they need to make sure we don't already have it? Take what you get and stop crying. It's FREE PSN. They don't have to give you shit, let alone a game on top of PS Plus membership and the 1 year fraud detection thing.
@logic: I agree with you, but the way dangert12 was talking, he expects Sony to know what he has and offer him something different. They wouldn't have the time to go through each account, searching for what they do not have, and offering up appropriate games.
The big Sony first party games on PSN I know of are: GOW HD collection Warhawk Wipeout Siren Blood Curse Infamous MAG DCUO The rest are mostly PSN original games
I agree, even if u ALREADY have all five of those games u still get a months sub of PS Plus and Quiricity(or whatever the hell its called) @newmonday- Giving out Warhawk for free would make sense too since its advertising for Starhawk. Obviously, not that many people will be buying Warhawk now since Starhawk may be coming out soon. Sony might as well give it out for free and use it as a marketing tool for the sequel.
@Dangett12... How will Sony know what you or anyone else has? What can they possibly offer that no one has, except more of its services (of which most are free)... I know Offer 77 million individual items to all the individuals accounts that got compromised. A free month of plus more than covers for a service that is free. The total offering so far is about $25. No matter what they offer, no one would be happy. It like Sony did this on purpose. This hack is not in anyone's interest, especially Sony. They will bring the system back, it will be more secure, still free, and offer free users something more. PSN+ will get these days back. I actually have 2 plus accounts, and I'm not complaining. I'm more concerned about getting the service back soon, but not until its more secure than previously, and the people responsible being found and jailed.
I have plus already and i have quiet a few sony exlusives i like sony alot but will feel let down if there apolgising by giving me what i have already :(
knowing my luck, every game they offer for free, im gonna already physically own...
Offering inFamous would do wonders for the franchise, but so would offering HD collections. For instance, I've not played Shadow of the Colosus or ICO, so getting those for free may pique my interest in Team ICO's new game when it releases. It's hard to tell what they'll do, but I can guarantee it will have the purpose of up-selling something else.
i wish people would stop sucking sony's nuts about you dont want anything for this down time as PSN is free. GORRILA are in house to sony. Killzone 3 has multiplayer. some people bought killzone 3 for multiplayer. killzone 3 is sony owned. PSN is down no killzone 3 multiplayer. Zipper Interactive are part of sony. no SOCOM 4 multiplayer means sony are to blame. YOU SPEND £40 on socom 4 and blam...PSN is down. you paid £40 for something that you cant play. its sony's fault. Zipper Interactive once again part of sony. MAG is online only. PSN is down MAG is useless. sony again are to blame. so all together thats say £120 worth of games with no multiplayer and as the campaign on socom 4 is garbage and mag not having one. you paid all that money to play KILLZONE 3 singleplayer. SONY OWES YOU SOMETHING.......DUMMIES. take my bubbles away all you like but you know im right. and who ever disagree's in my eyes would happily take it up the bum for sony.
its an insult because they are giving you a free game that you already have? so maybe they should give you another game? because your so special and they wouldnt want to insult you.
Offering this piece of junk is them spitting on our face!
I was able to snag infamous off of the PlayStation RLS site for pretty much $10. That's a great price. And not only would it be a free, full retail game, but it would also work as free advertising towards Infamous 2. Would it be a smart move? Absolutely. Will it happen? Eh, probably not...But there's always a possibility.
OH IF THEY DO!!! WOOT but i believe its gonna be some PSN games which is still good but if they give Infamous out free ill be good just with that game
They would probably do it because they probably wont sell many of them with infamous 2 coming out and it could make some people who weren't looking forward to infamous 2 want to buy it.
They should give a redeem code for a 20$ on the PSN. The problem here is that the most affected people by this outage are big players which already own Infamous or LittleBigPlanet or every old blockbuster game (WipeoutHD or Stardust) (if they are interested by the game). I'm really curious about what they will offer but don't put too much expectation otherwise you will be disappointed ! I hope they work to offer new features when the server will be online again... That will be a good use of the offline time !
Of course that would be awesome... but that's most likely not going to be the case... -But since were talking about what would be cool, what would really be cool is if they took off the stupid region thing... -and let a game like Rainbow Six Vegas 2 which was only on Euro acct's.. Let it come to the U.S. PSN store and make that one of the free games.. That would be awesome... I say there should be no more region crap.. Gamers are Gamers and We would love a worldwide PSN... Let's stuff that's just in euro come to the U.S. and Japan stuff... just let it be open no matter where you are you can grab stuff from other places.. (People are already doing it by making multiple accounts) So just open the whole thing up... Call it PSN world - You can still have things that will need to be region lock, and you can state that, but things like a theme does not have to be region locked that's stupid. I can understand if you want a game were the servers are only in Japan to be locked to japan fine, but not everything has to be, themes should be world-wide, some games don't need to be region locked -Rainbow Six Vegas 2 download should not just be for the euro PSN - I would love that game on the hard drive, I have it on disc but I would re-buy just to have it on the hard drive... .____........___...____ .____||......||.......____|| ||.........___||.......____||
Maybe just maybe that's why BEST BUY has it for $9.99?????????
Bestbuy has all the retail games $10 cheaper then it's downloadable counter part.
You know what's going to happen, is what ever games they offer for free will be tied to the PSN+ aspect of it. So when the free month of PSN+ expiers, they lose access to the free games, and if they want to continue to use the games, they have to renew their membership to PSN+.
Didn't the US PSN+ subscribers already get infamous for free?????. Likely especially with a sequel out so soon. Same I have already got it
I think they gave the full game trial for free (1 hour demo)
EU PSN+ subscribers got LittleBigPlanet though. Pretty cool.
You get a lot of this for many games on plus, and all members get plus for a month.
nope. the only thing free about infamous was the 1-hour trial. they had wipeout HD for free when hey launched PS+ in north america.
won't matter to me at least. Platinumed it already :-(
a LONG LONG time ago!
I think one of the games will probably be Fat Princess
thats actually the game i want
With the release of Infamous 2 coming up I wouldn't be surprised. I'd imagine they would focus on their solo releases anyway... fingers crossed for something good in the 5 at least!
I already own it.
I just got it so that would suck
got it last week. Got 3 ps3 games to play now
Give us Outland for free instead.
No going to happen; you don't pay for online, so you're not entitled to anything free. 30 days of ps plus is more than enough.
You missed the news ? There given us 2 free PS3 games for free not PSN 2 free Ps3 games its on the blog.
I read that but my initial thought was, "Oh well at least its not going to be some lame ass Minis" I doubt we are gonna get FULL retail games but probably things like Fat Princess,Dead Nation stuff like that.
Yeah, I heard that; I'm just sick of this need for entitlement. The only people I think that deserves something is plus members and people who play dc online.
IF PSN wasn't advertised on the box and a major asset to PS3 then perhaps id agree.... Sony wants a positive image and the only way to get that after 3 weeks of downtime is to hand out candy.
or maybe a big PSN title.
Already have it. But I guess its cool for those that don't.
The more important question is What if Sony Offers 5 games I already have for Free on PSN's Return?
Then you are shit out of luck. They can't make every single user happy.
That's where I agree they should give the user in in-store credit, where you can use that on something you want, not just a handfull of titles they choose. I doubt I will own the entire list they offer, but I doubt it. I know I already bought infamous on the psn, so that title would be something I dont want, because I already bought the rights to use it.
It would be a great way of giving the inFamous series more exposure (especially to casual gamers), but obviously there would be no profit whatsoever for a great game like inFamous 1.
i dont have it but it would be sweet
I would like resistance 2. Haven't played that yet And it would be just in time for R3
Won't happen.... Sucker punch: WTF Sony: U mad brah? :3
It's old. A lot of people have played it. That'd be lame.
I played it but never finish nor do I own it. So, I wouldn't mind actually. I've been meaning to buy it and finish it but just don't have the time or money. But I understand how many wouldn't want it since they played it or own it. Still, I would be please if it was one of the choices. As for 2 games, that's news to me. I thought it was only one game free.
Already own this great game.
Game gets boring after 10 minutes of play, doing the same thing all game long. Hope it's another game.
You must not like the majority of games out there. Especially if upgrading your powers, taking on new mission types, fighting different enemy types in new locations, etc... is "the same thing all game long"
If they do offer free games then it's certain that some people may own them, so just choose the one you haven't got. If you have all of them then what else can they do, having free PSN + for non subscribers is good enough anyway, it's not like they wanted to be hacked in the first place.
That makes alot of sense.
hope its assasins creed II since its free roam also.
I'd take Killzone 3 in a heartbeat!
After finishing it multiple times I traded mine in. I would be glad to take another copy for free though.
I think this sounds better... What if Sony Offers inFAMOUS 2 for Free on PSN's Return?
No. Then how the hell would sucker punch profit. I'd take the free inFAMOUS 2 but not gladly because I'd like the money to go str8 back to the devs.
I already paid for my inFamous 2 Hero Edition so I don't need a free copy. I just want PSN back up. They can keep all the other stuff.
wow is this based on comments made on neogaf... n4g is becoming less useful everyday.. I can read through neogaf to find tomorrows n4g topics
maybe neogafs comments was from n4g
Ya that would be awesome! An old game that has been played by everyone that wanted to play it and not by those that didn't (and still don't). Pointless...
