Sony has detailed its "Welcome Back" package for North American PSN users, and the freebies they can pick up as compensation for the downtime. I have to say that the offer is ... not bad. Could have been much worse!

Without further ado, here's what you can nab:

PS3 users can select TWO of the following games:

  • Dead Nation
  • inFAMOUS
  • LittleBigPlanet
  • Super Stardust HD
  • Wipeout HD + Fury

PSP users can also select TWO from the following list:

  • LittleBigPlanet
  • ModNation Racers
  • Pursuit Force
  • Killzone Liberation

In addition, all users get the following extras:

  • A selection of “On Us” rental movie titles will be available to PlayStation Network customers over one weekend, where Video Service is available. Those titles will be announced soon.
  • 30 days free PlayStation Plus membership for non PlayStation Plus subscribers.
  • Existing PlayStation Plus subscribers will receive an additional 60 days of free subscription.
  • Existing Music Unlimited Premium Trial subscription members will receive an additional 30 days of free premium subscription.
  • Additional 30 days + time lost for existing members of Music Unlimited Premium/Basic subscription free of charge for existing Premium/Basic members.
  • To welcome users Home, PlayStation Home will be offering 100 free virtual items. Additional free content will be released soon, including the next addition to the Home Mansion personal space, and Ooblag’s Alien Casino, an exclusive game.

The games Sony offers aren't exactly "hot" ones, but they're decent enough, especially at the price of free. Far better than nothing. 

What do you reckon? Which games do you want? Is this a good enough offer, or are you PISSED because you already have Pursuit Force?
