Aussie PSN Welcome Back offer detailed
Sony outlines how it plans to compensate Aussie gamers for the three-week outage.
Yesterday Sony Computer Entertainment flicked the "on" switch and brought back some of the PlayStation Network's basic features. While a good chunk of the service is still offline, at least PlayStation 3 owners can now log on to the PSN and play games online.
Following on from yesterday's rollout, Sony today announced how its remuneration plan would work. Similar to what those in North America are receiving, Aussies will get to choose two PlayStation 3 games from a list of five games. If you have a PSP account, then you can choose two games out of a list of four choices.
On top of that, existing PSN Plus subscribers will get a bonus 60-day subscription, while everyone else will get 30 free days. If you're a Music Unlimited subscriber, you'll also be granted a free 30-day subscription.
Check out the list below to see exactly which games are on offer for Aussie PlayStation owners, and be sure to read the terms and conditions of the offer over at the PlayStation Blog.
"Two PS3 games from the following list:
Ratchet and Clank: Quest for Booty
For those with PSP accounts, you will also be eligible to download two PSP games from the following list:
- 30 days free PlayStation Plus membership for non PS Plus subscribers.
- Existing PlayStation Plus subscribers will be given 60 days free subscription.
- For existing Music Unlimited subscribers, you will be given 30 days free subscription.
- We are working on a Welcome Back offer in PlayStation Home and will share that when it is confirmed."
