Maybe it isn't fair but there was enough time to use it so there is no reason to cry.

Welcome back package just got extended till 9am July 5th.

I'm sure people will still find some way to bitch about it though.

They sure will. Even with it spelled out for them, there will be some assclown who waits until 9:01am PST, and then starts crying about it. I swear the sense of entitlement this gaming generation has drives me crazy.

They had a freaking month!

omi25p2636d ago

could have been on holiday, busy at work ect ect. It should have been a permanent thing

Pozzle2636d ago

I agree with this tbh. I don't know about anywhere else in the world, but it has just been exam period for many here in Australia. So the last month has been pretty busy for many people doing exams, preparing for next semester, or beginning their holidays. I wouldn't be surprised if there were people who didn't even know about the Welcome Back package because they were too busy to play games at the time.

How can someone have ZERO time to at least REDEEM their free stuff? Not 5 minutes available in the 30 days given?

TheMrMadzen2636d ago

Well, if they had a holiday, they shouldn't be able to get it anyways, cause then the outage wasn't causing them problems at all!-_-

omi25p2636d ago (Edited 2636d ago )

not it if went on holiday during or just after the outage..

ilikegam3s2636d ago

Not a permanent thing, but at least till the end of the year imo.

Millah2636d ago

Yes, a month certainly sounds like plenty of time, but you know not everyone uses their PS3 everyday. And most people certainly don't keep up with these things on the Internet.

I didn't know that there was a one month time limit to redeem. If Sony had made that more clear, I would have turned my PS3 on and just redeemed before it expired, even though I haven't been playing my PS3 this past month. But I sort of assumed it was a permanent thing (because I had no reason to assume otherwise).

Oh well, I blame myself, but I certainly don't see why it wouldn't be a permanent thing.

I heard the store wasn't online right away, and by the time it was I heard that password reset was sketchy, and blah blah blah.

I missed the memo saying I only get a month.

Oh well.

gamingdroid2636d ago (Edited 2636d ago )

I have been gone for almost two months now! So no, it is isn't enough time for everyone. If I could redeem it on the internet that might a different story.

Besides, they said July 3rd, but somehow it is the users fault for not doing it sooner? Sony even screwed up on the password recovery and not everyone has been able to recover their passwords:

DigitalRaptor2636d ago

@ 0mi25p

There's ALWAYS a way.

You could contact a friend to redeem the games for you.

30 days is plenty of time. And to be honest - if people really cared for these games as any sort of compensation, they would have known about this and redeeemed them asap.

gamingdroid2636d ago (Edited 2636d ago )

Reality is Sony failed again.

They specifically said we had through July 3rd. I don't give two sh!ts what the reason is for a person not getting to it. That is their business, but a promise is a promise and Sony failed their promise!

Why is it suddenly the victim's fault? Sounds like a biased opinion to me. If you go to the store and the store advertised a price for an entire week, but you came in the last day and the store told you, well we ended it yesterday, but you had the like 6 days! All your fault!

Worse is when you have official Sony representatives echoing the same sentiment:!/jeffr...

Essentially, they are saying it is fine just to blatantly lie. It's a slap in the face.

radphil2636d ago (Edited 2636d ago )


1 month it was up there. It was all over twitter, it was all over N4G, it was all over the PSN STORE smack in your face. It was over on gamespot, IGN, destructoid. It was scrolling on the XMB when you turned your PS3 on.

On a side note, how is it Sony's fail for you being busy and gone for 2 months?

You're just complaining cause you missed out on free crap, and just venting out needless anger.

gamingdroid2636d ago

What part of it doesn't matter why I didn't get to it, did you not get?

Sony promised, THROUGH July 3rd and they failed. I don't care if it was posted freaken ten years ago everywhere. Sony reneged on their promise. End of story.

-EvoAnubis-2636d ago


Are you happy now? Wipe your tears and change your diaper.

lodossrage2635d ago

lol he'll never be happy.

radphil2635d ago

Now gamingdroid showed what his true purpose was. It was to find anything to complain about as far as Sony. :p

But yea, if anyone even complains now after this, they have no weight to go on.

lodossrage2635d ago (Edited 2635d ago )

If he spent some time on the ps3 he claims he owns and less time trolling n4g complaining or using alternate accounts to give himself bubbles he'd have his free stuff.

But as you said, he'll find ANY reason to moan and whine. Especially in regard to Sony. But don't worry, he has a little more time to get his stuff. When it gets taken off, we'll see some excuse as to why he didn't get it lol

thebudgetgamer2636d ago
