Welcome Back Program Available Now – Details Inside writes:

We’re so excited to welcome you back to PlayStation Network. With the PlayStation Store back online, we’ve been getting all caught up this week, having launched an abundance of amazing content for download on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable devices across games, movies, themes and DLC. Today, we’re excited to launch the Welcome Back program to thank you for your loyalty, and below, we’ve got what you need in order to get access to the included content. So, here’s a list of questions about the program. If you don’t see your question below, mention it in the comments and we’ll do our best to provide an answer. Thanks again for your patience and understanding as we restored the PlayStation Network and Qriocity services – your support has meant a lot to us and is greatly appreciated.


UPDATE - To those people that are having issues downloading their free gifts, may be due to trafficking and that everyone is downloading at the same time. Causes errors.

For us others that still can't access our account, because the website is down... we will wait!

LOL, if you read the comments on the blog people are having their "first game" from the welcome back stolen i.e. they didn't get to choose and was kicked out of the store. Welcome back, err... NOT!

I guess it is some kind of glitch.

Sony really isn't getting a break this time. I'm for hire if they want a professional.

ZombieAssassin2693d ago

Yea it happened to both of mine, oh well though I have about 10 accounts.

Omega Archetype2693d ago

It's a simple fix. go into the Account Management > Transaction Management > Service List > SCEA Promotion.

From there you'll be able to select the disappeared game haha. I did the same thing and was pissed off until I read that on Gamefaqs haha. Worked like a charm!

nickjkl2693d ago

Now I come back here and wait 130 minutes for inFamous to download.

I've waited this long, another two hours won't kill me.

DigitalRaptor2693d ago

That's fine, you can just watch a movie meanwhile.

sikbeta2693d ago

:( PS3 bricked here, just the day the welcome back program starts, bad luck for me, it seems like something with the electricity in my house f*cked up the power supply, cos the console was working great, enjoy those games for me :D

nycredude2693d ago

Can be fixed if you have youtube, a heat gun, screwdrivers, torque screwdriver, an hour, and a modicum of technical inclination.


or if you have matches, a lizard, 3 dragoneye balls, 2 fire ants and a .... no wait... thats a macgyver episode

xTruthx2693d ago

I got error in each one lol, I see none of the games i picked up for download or on xmb and the options to choose ps3 game 1,2 are gone

xTruthx2693d ago

If your having the same prob as me or similar, do this

1) Go to the XMB
2) Account Management
3) Transaction Management
4) Services List
5) SCEA(The first one most likely)

and then select your games there

Hmmm...just read it. It seems there are no regulations for multiple account users. I have four accounts in four different countries...guess that means four months of PS Plus :)

Oner2693d ago (Edited 2693d ago )

Actually wouldn't it still be 1 month? I could see maybe 2 months when the JP PSN comes back up but everywhere else would be IN the same month so you aren't really playing for 4 months since they all basically line up (again that is if JP PSN comes up say today).

LOGICWINS2693d ago (Edited 2693d ago )

According to the Blog,

The 30 days of PS Plus begins when you ACCESS it, meaning that it will ALWAYS be there UNTIL you access it.

I have an EU account, JP account(whenever it comes back), US account, and an Indian account. From what I understand, I could very well get four months of PS Plus.

GamerSciz2693d ago

Actually read a little closer. It begins when you access it however you only have until July 3rd to access it. So you can get 2 months free at most if you access it from one account today and another on july 3rd. It is not there indefinitely.

LOGICWINS2693d ago

Oh okay thanks. Well at least I gt two months for free. I wonder if PS Plus has different content in different countries.

Dart892693d ago (Edited 2693d ago )

F*** yea.

Edit:I can't seem to choose my games to download i was only able to get KZL can anyone help me??

TrevorPhillips2693d ago (Edited 2693d ago )

Thank you Sony :)

To those people that are having issues downloading, I think it may be because of alot of PS3 users downloading at once, traffic. I Think.

zeeshan8102693d ago (Edited 2693d ago )

Big Sean! boii lol

Finally Sony, Thanks!
