The PlayStation Network comes back, with gifts

There's a special Welcome Back package waiting for PlayStation users when they log onto the just restored PSN. Yay?

 

So, following the biggest personal security breach of all time, Sony's PlayStation Network is back up as of yesterday. At the same time, there's more than one person home 'ill' at Haymarket Media... coincidence?

Regardless, anyone logging onto the PSN from Australia, New Zealand and a handful of other territories will be pleased to find some gifts waiting for them. Here's the details from straight from the PlayStation blog:

Two PS3 games from the following list:

  • LittleBigPlanet
  • Infamous*
  • Wipeout HD/Fury
  • Ratchet and Clank: Quest for Booty
  • Dead Nation*

For those with PSP accounts, you will also be eligible to download two PSP games from the following list:

  • LittleBigPlanet PSP
  • ModNation PSP
  • Pursuit Force
  • Killzone Liberation*

- 30 days free PlayStation Plus membership for non PS Plus subscribers.
- Existing PlayStation Plus subscribers will be given 60 days free subscription.
- For existing Music Unlimited subscribers, you will be given 30 days free subscription.

Not bad, but then again you'd expect some pretty special consideration following a breach of this magnitude. For more details on the Welcome Back gift offer, check out the blog entry.

What do you think, guys - is this enough?
