With Sony’s announcement of their planed customer appreciation program for North America, I thought it would a good idea to round up some information about all of the games being offered. Just keep in mind that to qualify for the program you must be a pre-existing PSN member, and you must grab your games within 30 days of the program’s launch.
Use our handy guide to help you choose your return to PSN.
PS3 gamers have the choice of two of five games.
Dead Nation (77 Metacritic/$15 PSN) – If you like horror-filled cooperative gameplay then this maybe just the game to help ease you back into the PSN ecosystem.
inFamous (85 Metacritic/$23.38 Amazon) – If you somehow managed to miss this when it released back in 2009, then this open-world action/adventure game should be the perfect thing to help you release 26 days worth of online-deprived gaming rage.
LittleBigPlanet (95 Metacritic/$13.99 Amazon) – Sony brought another big gun to the make-up party with this 2008 platformer classic. With its lovable Sackboy mascot and beautiful music score, this should help calm even the crankiest PS3 gamer.
Super Stardust HD (85 Metacritic/$10 PSN) – If the thought of an HD version of the classic Stardust game make you feel tingly all over, then this modern remake maybe just the thing the doctor ordered.
Wipeout HD and Fury DLC (87 Metacritic/$20 PSN) – Racing fans will appreciate the inclusion of this beautiful 1080p title. The high-speed action and online gameplay should be enough to take any adrenaline junkie’s mind off all the recent PSN turmoil.
PSP owners have a choice of two of four games.
LittleBigPlanet (87 Metacritic/$19.54 Amazon) – If you just couldn’t get enough Sackboy action on your PS3, then this pocket-sized experience should be just the thing to fill the void when you are forced to actually leave the house.
ModNation Racers (73 Metacritic/$19.81 Amazon) – If kart racing, character creation and track tweaking sounds like the perfect way to pass a couple hours, the this game should be on the top of your freebie list.
Pursuit Force (75 Metacritic/$11.32 Amazon) – As a police rookie you must clear the city of five gangs through a series of gun fights and car chases.
Killzone: Liberation (77 Metacritic/$14.37 Amazon) – Sony dug deep in its vaults to find this 2006 shooter. This game picks up the story where the original Killzone left off. Liberation should be the perfect reminder of simpler times, when our gaming experiences didn’t revolve around constant Internet connections.
While your mileage may vary depending on your taste in games, I would recommend picking up LittleBigPlanet and inFamous on the PS3 side, and LittleBigPlanet and ModNation Racers on the PSP side. Let us know in the comments what you plan on picking up when the program goes live.
