As I am sure that you know by now, the Sony has started the process of bringing the PlayStation Network back online. Not everything is currently working, but online play and many of the subscription based services have regained functionality over the past couple of days. Eventually, the PlayStation Store is going to come back online and when it does, Sony has some free things ready and waiting for you to claim...

Sony has outlined the welcome back gifts that will be available when the PlayStation Store re-launches. All PlatStation Network customers will be given their choice of two games from the following list:
  • Dead Nation
  • inFAMOUS
  • LittleBigPlanet
  • Super Stardust HD
  • Wipeout HD + Fury
PSP owners will be able to choose two of the following titles:
  • LittleBigPlanet (PSP)
  • ModNation Racers
  • Pursuit Force
  • Killzone Liberation
The free games will be available for redemption for 30 days after it comes back online and can be kept forever by users. Some of the other benefits being included in the program include:
  • selection of “On Us” rental movie titles through the PSN for one weekend, when it comes back online
  • 30 days of free PlayStation Plus membership for non-PS+ subscribers
  • 60 day extension of membership to all current PS+ memberships
