The PSN 'Welcome Back' service is now available. While it's not yet listed on the Australian PSN site, I'm currently downloading my free copy of Dead Nation & InFamous.

In addition to 30 days of Playstation Plus (or 60 days if you're a current subscriber), you can pick 2 of the following for each platform. For the PlayStation 3, you can choose from Dead Nation, InFamous, Wipeout HD + Fury, Little Big Planet, and Ratchet & Clank: Quest for Booty.

Or, for the PSP you can choose between Little Big Planet, ModNation Racers, Pursuit Force, and Killzone Liberation.

What games will you guys be getting? promoted forum item.

Only one on that list that seems interesting to me is InFamous. Alas I no longer have my PS3 though. As for PSP the only good game/series (besides breath of fire 3) to be released, wasn't released outside of korean so nothing i'd want there.

All of them except LBP. I love having multiple PSN accounts (although wish I'd created a Japanese one when I originally planned to!)

You'll probably encounter some errors when navigating the PSN store - it's just a matter of try & try again until it works, it'll be getting pretty hammered at the moment.

Already have Dead Nation + LBP.
Wipeout looks like it hasn't changed in nearly ?10 years and I have Motorstorm Apocalypse for my action racing
So I grabbed Grabbed Ratchet and Clank + Infamous.
D/L'd and tested both as working fine, it's a pain if you start downloading one and leave the store, to claim your second game you need to go to:

Network -> Download Management -> Services List.

Took forever to work that out!

Is there anyway to redeem them via their website on PC? I don't have a PS3 but I have an account along with about 4 other games I got via a coke promotion. So when I eventually get a PS3 I'm gonna be set.

Dead Nation is fun - plays a bit like Alien Swarm with zombies. Between it & InFamous I had to delete most of my game data to get them installed. Yay for the original tiny HDD PS3.

Nah, don't think so. You may be able to use one of the PS3s at work?

The copy of InFamous you get through this also has the pre-order bonus power, Gigawatt Blades.

infamous + ratchet and clank

haven't played infamous yet but it looks like a bit of alright

infamous was a bit of a sleeper hit for me.

Plot is quite similar to Prototype, but I really dug the way Infamous works. (maybe this is a clever plug for Infamous 2)

Also, Wipeout HD is great (warning: a bit of a fanboi of the franchise), the visuals are CRISP and the game runs at a solid 60FPS (even in 3D) it isn't for everyone but it doesn't have the 'learning cliff' (coz it's not a learning curve) that the original did.

for me it'll be Infamous (because I borrowed the original from a mate finished it as a 'good guy' and returned it... now I'll replay as a bad guy) and Ratchet and Clank I think

Unless someone can vouch for Dead Nation?

Slightly off topic.
The Coke Bottle Competition games are not censored. I had sex in God Of WarHD, twice. Which I'm fairly sure didnt happen on ps2. Also some of the Coke Competition games are the same as the Free Sony Games.... *nudge nudge, wink wink.

totes vouch for Dead Nation. Especially if you're over FPS & love co-op.

Dead Nation co-op kept giving me "You Got Disconnected" issues, anybody else experience this? Not sure if it's due to PSN being hammered or not. Jumped on since I figured more people would now have it after the free games.

My PS3 is Cate5e to router on Cable, doubted it was my net unless router was causing port forwarding type dramas?

Was filthy I missed out on a copy of GoW HD from this promo, although $4 or so for the first 2 games in HD is a bit hard to pass by.
