While it was only a mater of time when the Playstation Store would be coming back after the recent revival of PSN. Details indicates that the date will be next week, May 24th. And it’s not just one update folks, will be getting several. Possibly enough to make up for the month of not being able to download/buy anything from the store. According to the letter that Sony is sending out to it’s partners, the multiple updates will happen on May 24th, 27th, 31st and June 3rd.
So why make a big deal about the Playstation Store coming back? It’s because that will begin your chance to take part of Sony’s “Welcome Back” appreciation program in which Sony is giving you free shit to make up for the outage time. Your first choice is picking out two PS3/PSN games from a list that consist of Dead Nation, Super Stardust HD, Wipeout HD + Fury, LittleBigPlanet (PSN Download), and inFamous (PSN Download). Also, if you happen to have a PSP, you have option to pick two PSP games from a list that consist of LittleBigPlanet, ModNation Racers, Pursuit Force, and Killzone Liberation.
Sony will also be giving away free items for Playstation Home users and a 30 day trial to non-subscribers of Playstation Plus and Quriocity while subscribers will be getting additional days added to their subscription (60 for PS+ users and 30 for Quriocity users). Of course the one catch for all this is to do all this within the first 30 days after the store is back up.
Do you think Sony has redeemed themselves on how they took care of the matter of bringing the network back up? Do you know what games you’ll be picking out from the list? Or, do you think Sony still has a lot more to do for you to forgive them?
