GM: Playstation Germany has revealed a tentative timeline by which the Welcome Back Programme will be activated and users can start redeeming their free gifts, including the free games.
I was hoping to redeem my copy of inFamous and LBP today. Oh well. :(
sooo to download those free games i need to have a code ?? where do i get the codes from ??
No,you don't need a code
I wanna know if you can redeem Psn plus whenever you want so if i dont like anything there this month, i can just redeem the month after?
wishful thinking. You get it as soon as the package goes up.
That's just too convenient.
think soon as it been offered you have 30 days too redeem it before offer expire does not matter if you sign in or not
hopefully in the next 24 hour..not few days...we heard few days enough all ready...
probably after they feel the bandwidth in use has died down to a reasonable level to handle another wave of mass downloads.
I tried to download infamous but it came up saying I have to pay or have a playstation plus. They're probably figuring out some form on structure to get it out, if millions of people spam the same download. Maybe putting it on multiple servers etc....
damn i wanted to play wipeout.
They've also detailed how we can redeem it, nice. Just need to wait for them to activate it now
Wonder when the PS+ month begins, will it just be activated instantly for everyone when the welcome pack is available for us all?
lemme quote that part for you "Hi, when the welcome Back pack launches, there will be a thumbnail in the Welcome Back section and you just download this as you would any other product and then you will access to the Plus section of the Store, where all the content will be." Once you access the Welcome Back pack, you can redeem your free PS Plus month
Ah sorry I must have glanced over that, cheers for the info.
(yay) burnout paradise for free on ps plus this month? Damn! Wish I hadn't bought it already.
PlaystationEU just tweeted: "Update on the Welcome Back offer content: it is in the final stages of testing and will be available to download very soon". To me, "very soon" sounds closer than "within a few days", so here's hoping it will be available within the next 24 hours, rather than the next few days.
****** Correction, it is live now.
So we need the free Playstation Plus Subscription to get the free games ? What happens when the free Playstation Subscription runs out ? We lose the games we were supposed to get for free unless we pay for Playstation Plus ?
No. We get to keep the games indefinitely. I'm guessing that after you download the Welcome Back thumbnail, the only reason it takes you to the plus section is so that you can start your PS+ free trial first. Or maybe, for time's sake, they are gonna put all the redeemable items in one location for ease of access. Since the Plus section can be accessed right away when in the store, they chose that location.
Why don't you literally f*** your own face, Les? (Know where it's from before you cry about it)

Only games that are free because of PS Plus expire at the end of the subscription. The game in the welcome back package are yours to keep forever. For example Sonic 2 is 5 dollars, but its free to Plus members. After the subscription you would have to pay 5 dollars to keep playing it. Meanwhile InFamous is free from the welcome back package, as long as you download it within a month you will get to keep it forever.
The Welcome Back program will be activated within a few days. why does this sound familiar?
Great a "not official" date from Sony....lets hope this isn't delayed too. I was excited for the store to come back up to buy things, but pretty much everything I want to buy (including sonic 2) is discounted in PS Plus so I might as well wait.
My understanding is we get to keep our two free download games, but the free games as a PS+ subscriber go away unless you re-up your subsciption with them. I could be wrong but that is how i understnad the whole thing
Never anything new with Sony, the wait continues.
from your past comments you dont sound like a big fan of sony so i doubt you have a ps3.
Having a ps3 doesn't mean you have to love Sony. Hell I have a ps3, and I don't really like Sony after this hacking fiasco, but I still love the exclusive games. You dont have to like the father company, you just have to like the games!
I know but,look at his comments, from how much he doesnt like sony i dont think hed touch or use anything thats sony
No, not the biggest fan of Sony, but my house is riddled with that garbage. Wife is a diehard Sony fan. I have a ps3. I've been a multi-platform owner & gaming for probably longer than you were alive, thank you very much. I just prefer to game on either PC or Xbox live & not that trash they call a network on the PS3. I do watch a lot of movies on it. :D And no, my ps3 isn't hacked or jailbroken. Even then, I'm not a hater. You want to play games together on any platform even Wii, PM me your gamertag/ID/code and I'll send you a friend request. The welcome Back games were up a day after they announced this. Since then I've downloaded every game for PS3 & PSP over a few accounts.
I just read that SONY got hacked again. This time the Sony Pictures website.
And the crying never stops. Who cares if you have to wait for the free games? Are they going anywhere? Is you lifeline attached to them? Are they going to expire if Sony doesn't deliver them? Will getting them faster and sooner make a difference? First people complained about what the compensation may or not be, then they complained about what the compensation is and now the complaining about how long it will take. What's next? Are you going to complain about how bad the compensation will be if the PS4 gets hacked? I literally have tons of demos, games, backgrounds etc to download for free or to buy so I am not even thinking about the free games at the moment.Not sure what the big deal is. You will still have it whether it comes this or next week.
