These are the games Sony should have offered instead of its somewhat lackluster lineup of games they delivered in the welcome back package.
I don't think that list is more enticing. I have also never seen the draw of flower, I know some people say it is calming but my experience of it made me feel angry and frustrated and I'm a pretty calm guy
Lol. It's not for everybody, but I liked it. Got frustrated with the camera sometimes though, it was a bit finicky at times
Well I'm obviously one of the people it's not for, it's one of the few games that have made me want to kick in my tv screen
I liked Flower. Got all trophies for it :D And really, the games Sony is offering are good, at least compared to what this site is suggesting. I already own the 2 major PS3 titles there, and bough Super Stardust HD. So it's easy for me to pick the 2 games. I actually own Wipeout, but not Fury, so thank you Sony.
I already have wipeout and stardust on the ps3 and killzone on the psp. The other ones that are officially being given away are fine with me. I like lbp but I will get that and mod nation racers for the psp. For the ps3 it will be infamous and dead nation. I was originally thinking of getting lbp on the ps3 as well but having it on the psp is fine with me. I usually tend not to get the same game on a portable as i do on the console. Exception to that would be dante inferno. I liked the console version on the 360 and enjoyed the psp version as well. These give aways are nice to those who dont already have them. Sorry they cant please everyone but sometimes it happens.
I like sonys list much better, but thats just me I guess.
I'm super happy with Sony's list, I have pretty much all those games, but I want Super Stardust HD and InFamous, I've played and beaten InFamous but I borrowed it from my brother so I've never owned it, so yeah, I'm stoked, getting FREE stuff because a FREE service went down.
Shatter Flower Mag pixel junk shooter 2 GOW2 collection
Sony's list is better. I wish R&C: QfB was US also though, not just europe. I'd get that. I'll try to make a euro account for it. Besides that, I'm going with LBP and wipEout HD Fury most likely (I already have inFamous). Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars would've been an interesting inclusion. I'm not into soccer at all, but this montage make it look damn fun: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Damn, have them all except GoW Collection(have those on PS2). I need to stop supporting Sony so much, leaves me with no option for freebies. /sarcasm
Lol I have all those games except for FF VIII.
Oh hell no that list would have sucked... I already got stuff on that list and LBP and Infamous are the entire game on Hard drive... these are not just PSN titles... I think the list is good if I would add anything it would have been Rainbow Six Vegas 2 but if you played these already or have them then this is a good time to get them on the hard drive.. I really think it's not that bad at all.. these are some quality games.. .____........___...____ .____||......||.......____|| ||.........___||.......____||
This alone proves Sony's point of "you can't please everyone". Even those who are coming up with alternate lists are still having the lists get hated on.
@fr0sty- People just hate lists in general.
The only one I like from this guys list would be warhawk, but alot of people already have that too I think.
Warhawk was a launch title wasn't it? or something close to that. Either way yeah, I'm pretty damn sure lots of people already have it, and last time I checked almost nobody really plays it anymore, and the people who do are like PRO PRO...yes thats double PRO!!!
Here are the lists (in case you want to avoid giving sites like this more hits) From the Article : This is Sony’s original game lineup in the welcome back pack for North America: Dead Nation inFAMOUS LittleBigPlanet Super Stardust HD Wipeout HD + Fury For European users: LittleBigPlanet Infamous Wipeout HD/Fury Ratchet and Clank: Quest for Booty Dead Nation However, what is a MUCH more enticing prospect are a selection from these games: Fat Princess Trine Warhawk Final Fantasy VIII God of War Collection Flower Shatter Joe Danger What games would you suggest Sony should have included in their welcome back package?
I will be getting Dead Nation and Wipeout HD. Not to mention free movie rentals and all the other free stuff I get for being a Plus member. Me FTW!
I would have chose infamous, dead nation, or LBP over any of those. Plus if people are complaining about already having games then gow 1&2 or FFVII wouldn't have helped. The majority of people dont want old games. It was way better to offer real games not little psn games that would keep you interested for like 5 minutes like joe danger and flower. No one wants an online online shooter that probably has no one playing it any more. Theyll probably offer warhawk on plus for free like MAG or for a discount.
Im fine with Sony's list. I want Stardust and either Wipeout, or Dead nation. havent decided. I dont care for infamous.
They should have put warhawk to help starhawk in the long run
Flower was nice. Don't diss Flower ;D I still got to buy fl0w
hell no that list of games sucks! hello infamous and LBP? thats pure awesomeness! plus the other three are pretty cool too.
Shatter was given away for free on the EU store with Playstation Plus, Warhawk has had numerous discounts, GOW collection, Flower, Fat Princess and Joe Danger have all been discounted previously. Trine is properly third party so giving that away (if a third of the total PSN accounts had claimed it) would have cost Sony $50,000,000 or more. Had Sony given away games which were discounted previously people would be making the same criticsms saying that they were encouraged to buy a game which was given away for free.
Anybody that thinks they would give away god of war collection is actually stupid. They can still sell that for atleast £20 and its relatively new... THINK ABOUT IT!
"What games would you suggest Sony should have included in their welcome back package?" This question will be answered differently. People, or individuals, will just list the games that they don't have but would like to own. This list would eventually be different from others'.
You can get Warhawk used at Gamestop for $10..and the Warhawk DLC will come FREE with the upcoming free month of PS Plus that EVERY PSN member will receive. Also, Wipeout HD Fury and LBP are arguably better than the rest of the games you listed.
I might go out and buy Warhawk to prepare for Starhawk. And I'm PS+ so I can get the free dlc for Warhawk too. :)
I picked it up yesterday. FANTASTIC game and really fun even though the game is FILLED with people who don't know what their doing. I played for 4 hours today without realizing how much time went by lol. If you gt it, PM me. I wanna add people who are interested in playing the game the way its meant to be played...as a team.
Ok, man. I'll let you know if I buy it.
Is it going to be all the Warhawk DLC free?
YUP. All the Warhawk DLC was offered on PS Plus before PSN went down.
sweet i may pick it up, might get some time in before infamous 2 and i will have it to play all through summer.
Here's the problem, Deathspank and Trine aren't published by Sony, but there's really no reason the other three couldn't have been offered... especially Warhawk, it seems so obvious with Starhawk just being announced and the fact it's one of the best online games on the PS3.
Flower would have been good. Everyone should try this game. Wonderful game
everyone CAN try this game. There is a demo on the store when that comes back online.
But what about those of us who already own it? What are we supposed to do? Sony needs to give us all free BJs or I'm going to cry on the internet!!! This welcome back package sucks! Wah! I already own it! I even owned the free months of PS+ and the free rental already also! Even the free 100 home items! Sony sucks! Wah!
The explanation of why you picked those games would of been nice besides you just adding a list of games.
I hate "What if" articles
Yeah, but what if we never had them....;)
"nyuck nyuck nyuck nyuck nyuck nyuck nyuck"
All of the free games are published by Sony, for what I would think would be an obvious reason. In this article's list, are at least 2 games that are NOT published by Sony. Thus, article is an instant fail, IMO -- the author doesn't understand the huge financial difference between Sony handing out free products, and Sony paying other publishers money so that users can have free products. The difference is in Sony losing a few 10s of millions of potential revenue, as opposed to Sony paying 100s of millions of dollars directly to 3rd parties, in addition to the 10s of millions of their own potential licensing revenue. If you're gonna jump on the bandwagon and make a personal "these are the games they should have chosen" list, at least be financially intelligent about it, and ONLY pick games from Sony's published lineup. The next few of these dumb articles will probably state they think Sony should have purchased everyone a month of XBL Gold.
Damn i should of payed better attention. I was thinking racket and clank was US, i see it's not now.
that list was shit lol. But I agree that Warhawk should have been on Sony's list. If it were free than there would be more people playing it and I could finally try it out. (Plus its an online game so it will garner large crowds)
i'd be willing to bet my left sock that if sony did offer to give these games there would be an article saying why these games suck and they should give different games.
warhawk is a good one but the rest were terrible. Honestly, LBP, Socom confrontation, warhawk, Burnout Paradise, inFamous. Maybe swap out warhawk for MAG since there already 2 3rd person online shooters.
they already gave mag for plus users, just with a level cap
Um, no . . . I also have all of those games.
More companies had to consent than just Sony. I appreciate those companies who were generous enough to let Sony give their games away for free. Do wish there was more offered though...
Their list is sad, I have alot of those games already to lol. I don't really care, I'm happy to be able to play online.
No, their list is great. So great that it just happens that we own those damn games! AT least I do. It sucks.
Heavenly Sword would have been a good one
downloadable game I believe.
aww Red Faction then
Are you going to pay THQ for the license to give away Red Faction?
Let me fix the list: Free Games Sony Should Have Offered Instead in alphabetical order: End of List. I think people are just complaining too much. SONY is really giving out great games. I also already have all of them - so what. No matter which games they offer people would always whine. As far as that is concerned SONY should have offered no games. It would have ended in the same whining but at least noone could claim that the games are worthless, when most of them have excellent metacritic scores.
get lost you troll. seriously, you wanted NOTHING? That would make sony look bad. Even XBOX had a free game for 2 weeks of down time
You really are a nice fella aren't you? I'm a troll? Interesting. All i said was that all the games that SONY is offering are great and people still complain about it - about gifts. People are just unable to appreciate the gesture. Since you compare it to the Live outage gift. All titles are way better than what live offered and live was out over the holidays as a payed service. psn was out in may and it is free, so i don't think SONY owed anyone any gifts. Sure it is nice of them to give some but as can be seen people will never be satisfied unless SONY had given out Killzone 3 and Uncharted 3 for free, and even then some would have complained that Killzone is too old and that they should have thrown in some dualshock controllers for everyone. People with this attitude really don't deserve any free games from anyone. Originally most people were expecting minis and now that they get a choice of 5 very high rated games they still whine like they are forced to buy them. What i was saying is that people are whining just as if they hadn't got any games - so that it would hardly make a difference. As i wrote above. I already have all of the games because i am a gamer and still i am not complaining. Sure i would have liked other games but i tend to not complain about gifts. I am absolutely pro SONY in this issue but i can impossibly be pro complainers. Please explain how my ironic (as far as i can tell obviously so) post poking fun of the stupid article is trolling. Thanks.
Sony wouldve never been able to satisfy all the complainers......So they aimed at the majority, and let the minority complain. You just cant please everybody... I have every game on the list except the fury DLC and im happy with my two extra months of PS+...I can also trade in LBP and DL it to my HDD. Every PSN member wins in this situation whether they would like to see it or not. Free stuff for 3 weeks of PSN downtime.....great deal
biggest problem greedy people
I agree with that list.
They couldn't give you Warhawk. 50 million people playing it? Sony would have to buy whole new servers to handle the overload. More money to shell out. Just stop the coulda, woulda, shoulda articles, please.
I'm glad they didn't I got bored of Warhawk years ago
resistance fall of man
I think they should have offered infamous, LBP, super stardust HD, dead nation, and wipe hd+ fury. I would have been happy then.........honestly get a grip people, these damn games are free. These articles are pointless.
Modnation racers would have been good as its one of the few Sony games I want that I dont have. To tell the truth, I would have been happy just to see the rest of the world catch up to the US store as far as content goes. We still cant get RE2 for gods sake. I would have been happy with a couple PSOne titles like that.
I was hoping to get flower for my troubles....
Ummm the entirety of down time? I'm not really bitching or anything, I'm happy with the games but since we heard that we'd get some free games I was hoping flower would be one of them....
Why are people disagreeing with me?
