im not a PSN+ memmber yet looks like i'll get it soon but in the mean while when are we going to get those free games ???
Dude where did you find the download for burnout, i am a psn+ member, i cant find it anywhere for free, it says that its $19.99. Can you help me out here.
My understanding is that it is for people living in the EU.
im fitzing!!!! 3 games for free now!
are they really free? i thought you can only play them as long as you keep a psn+ subscription active.
what does it say, can you PM it to me please dude please pm me what it says, the page isn't working for me, copy & paste is it US or EU thanks i gave up a bubble
Here you go. It has just been confirmed that, due to the Store coming back a little later than we hoped, the extra days added to Plus memberships is being extended by another 10 days so you are getting a total of 70 days extra for free. This will show up automatically on your account in the next few days. If you were a Plus member on or before the 21st April, we have automatically added a full 60 days onto your Plus membership to make sure you get back any time missed. You don’t need to do anything to get this; it has been added to your account and your membership will simply carry on for 60 days past the original renewal date. We will be keeping April’s content on the Plus section of the Store for a further 2 weeks in case you missed anything before the 21st. We have an action packed month for you in June and, for the first time, we have a fantastic EA title for you – our flagship title this month is the amazing open-world racing game and the king of arcade racing. Burnout Paradise is available to download as part of June’s content list so don’t miss it.
I think this is only for EU as I am in the US and tried looking for burnout Paradise and couldn't find it. Looks like we get Comet Crash instead :(
Thats only for EU isnt it?
burnout paradise is bad ass
Sweet. Paradise is my favourite arcade racer. Glad too see everyone get a chance to play it :) ***One question about the PS PLUS though*** If I buy a game with a ps+ discount during my 30 free days, will I get that discount or doesn't it apply to us?
I believe you will get that discount.
Ahhhhhh!!!!!! I bought this game like a week before the network went down....oh well should be a lot more people online :) Warhawk is downloading @the moment :D
xD how do you access the welcome back thingie? xD
The Welcome Back stuff isnt available yet.
They said that the welcome back will be up on Friday. So one more day. However, it is amazing to see the store back.
friday huh? http://www.youtube.com/watc...
@Ocelot525 You've doomed us all...
Ocelot: I was about to click on your link, but I'm quite perceptive so.... http://i181.photobucket.com...
I remember they showed that on a news show here claiming she was the next big thing with five million views! I was like: So, it's Youtube, Funny baby laughing has 382 million views! I didn't watch, I too am perceptive!
o_0~ OMG, weekends are so ruined for me now
no surprise that there will be high traffic! no point on trying to download anything as of right now
I tried the infamous 2 demo. I failed.
It is ok. And Streets of Rage 2 is free on plus. As well as Burnout. Silly question but do we get to keep them or is it just for the duration of free plus?
same here , when you try download it you will get error but if you go to the VIEW Downloads you will be able to download it :) ... i can't download it because i have bad network , it's really slow and the download is 2,600 GB >.< ... im buying the game so i don't need to download the demo but i wanted to play it early... go to special offers and you will see a free game , it's Blue toad murder Files ..
@Killzone3___ 2,600 GB download...??? I am assuming that is an exageration, 2.6 GB I could understand but I am pretty confident you are not downloading a 2,600 GB file.
yea, he obviously meant 2,600 MB, genius.
I've managed to get everything I want so far. Its been a bit hit and miss, but it seems more stable now.
Same, was a bit slow and i got the odd error message popping up, but i managed to download what i wanted.
actually its downloading pretty good I had to format my PS3 yesterday stupid 80010514 error Sony said it would fix it,it doesn't.And I have already download 120 gigs worth of my games.So its working pretty good for me in Ohio at the very least.I thought it would take a week to re download everything but only a day.
Cant wait for the welcome back package. I cant wait to take advantage of those free games.
So is Burnout Paradise free for PS+ or was it added as a free game offer to the Welcome Back Program ?
Its for the PS+ members only. Im not sure if you get it when we all get PS+ as a part of the "Welcome Back" pack, i think its only for those who were members when the network went down.
Yeah burnouts free for 2 weeks and no doubt that's why the welcome back been held back so they don't have to give a free copy to everybody even if they stay on ps+. It's like another special treat for those faithful members you would never see MS or Nintendo doing anything like this and thats what I really love about Sony this gen the free stuff is IMMENSE.
it's freed for 30 days(more than 2 weeks) and that only applies to the people who aren't currently ps+ members that will be getting it as part of the welcome back program.. i'll have it for about a year unless i delete it
how would you know????? Nintendo and Xbox has never been hacked this bad before... i love free stuff like the next man, but they wouldnt have just given it to us if th ey had never been hacked .
Geoldenarmz By far Sony has been giving more stuff for free than MS and Nintendo combined. Even before the hack, online is free, and they gave our themes, avatars, and some games for free. MS? You can't even play online for free!
You never see MS or Nintendo online network down for over a month either ;op
Its for June's PS+ so everyone should get.
found this on ps blog site Available to all PlayStation Plus members, including those who have 30 days free membership: PSN: Burnout Paradise Magic: The Gathering – Duels of the Planeswalkers Streets of Rage 2 so it ps + edit it EU ps blog not US
dammit really? I cant get burnout because of region difference? sighhh
I was really hoping for Burnout in the US. This really blows.
As it's just a limited free only with subscription deal I'd guess it will be offered in other regions at different times. Personally I think the best offer is the new game Under Siege with a nice "plus" discount. Duals of the Planeswalkers seems to be a real budget version ( no big animated battle scenes etc) of The Eye of Judgement
The store is up now....here in America
Word of warning for the eu store users, if you try to add funds to your wallet and get an error code, the money will still be added....... So be careful when adding funds lol and double check email confirmations. Did not know outland was a housemarque game ??!?!?!!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? and it got a plus discount as did under siege!!!!!!!!!!!!!! wooot
Can someone tell me how do i get my free games?!
You don't! At least, not right now.. they're not available yet.
The free games come tomorrow.
Back to spend a lot of money :D
Guess theirs no such thing as free games so sad. but the PSN is back on!
you will get your free games friday maybe later depending on your location.
Yeah man, even Rebecca Black knows this, check back tomorrow, Worst case; We will complain bright & early Monday morning...
I still can not change my PSN password on my real account. Using a bs account until the stupid "Site Maintenance Notice The server is currently down for maintenance. We apologize for the inconvenience. Please try again later." goes away ..
In the age of technology this is already old news. It was up at 8am EST when I logged in and I downloaded the inFamous 2 demo and I shit you not. I was playing it and not even 5mins into it the game froze. Also can't wait too hear all the complaints about the free games not being available yet.
So glad the store is back up, I redeemed my PSN card and got FFXIII, FFXIV, and Pacman DX while it's on sale. Just wish I had more cash for some other stuff on their like FFV and the God of war collection is on sale too.
I just deleted all the betas on my ps3 so now I have a whopping 13gb free on my 60gb ps3. Im ready for the downloading.
I've got a whopping 209 gigs on my 320 gig hardrive =) just sayin lol
Can't wait to get my hands on some free games, finally turning the PS3 back on after a month.
Has anyone received the free days of subscription in PS Plus, or it will just be available along with Welcome Back program?
