Sony Giving Away Free Games for PSN Outage
First up, everybody is going to get a month of Playstation Plus membership free, and current Playstation Plus subscribers get two free months. Service isn’t restored fully, but as soon as it is, users get their Playstation Plus memberships bounced up and a few other cool things.
Specifically, those things are free games. First off, there are a handful of PS3 games that can be downloaded free of charge and kept “forever.” You can choose any two from this list:
- Little Big Planet
- Dead Nation
- Wipeout HD + Fury
- Super Stardust HD
If you’ve got a PSP, you also get two downloads from this list:
- LittleBigPlanet (PSP)
- ModNation Racers
- Pursuit Force
- Killzone Liberation
Both sets of games will only be available for a month after the Playstation Store comes back online. Beyond that, there’s even more free stuff coming our way. The PSN will include a weekend of free select movies for rental, although that hasn’t been announced yet, and Playstation Home users will receive 100 free virtual items to download, including the next installment of the Home Mansion and an exclusive Home game, Ooblag’s Alien Casino.
Music Unlimited Premium and Basic subscribers get the time that was lost made up to them for free, and anyone who was working through a Music Unlimited Premium Trial subscription gets an additional free 30 days.
We’ll let you know when this stuff actually becomes available, and when Sony hands out the last of the announcements of just what it’s offering.
