I don't know... it wasn't just an outage. There were credit cards and other credentials stolen.TomSEA said:
That's quite a bit of free offerings for a 3-week outage and really only impacted online gaming. If I were a PS3 owner, I'd be satisfied. Until it happens again...
I'll definitely give Wipeout HD a go, wish Ratchet and Clank was available in the US ... not sure yet which one of the others to pick.For all those PSN users out there I highly recommend Wipeout HD (especially since it comes with the Fury expansion which has the same amount of content as the original release). Whilst it has the mother of all learning curves and is incredibly punishing for any player that does not strive for perfection, it is also very rewarding and a graphical masterpiece.
Dead Nation is a zombie killing game that is like if you combined MacGuiver with GTA with Left 4 Dead; inFamous is a kick-**** game where you play a modern-day superhero doing kick-**** super-heroey things; Wipeout is a classic PS series (briefly had appearances in a few other formats) which pits you behind the controls of an Anti-gravity craft - with weapons - that you race around very amazing looking tracks; LittleBigPlanet is a cute little game that allows you to create cute little games for other people to play and enjoy (it is far more complicated and enjoyable than that); Super Stardust is an asteroids game if I remember correctly; Ratchet and Clank is a cute adventure game walking in the footsteps of titles like Crash Bandicoot and Spyro (although, unlike these titles, the series has gotten better with each title); and Hustle Kings is a pool game if my memory serves me correctly.blimp01 said:
Never heard of any of those games haha
I'm not terribly worried about my card's details though as the Credit companies as the second most aggressive company type, so if your card is used for fraudulent practices, not only will they fight nail and tooth to get it all back to normal for you, but you are covered by law (at least in Australia, up to $100,000 I believe, of which is covered by government insurance anyway) on top of that as well."I don't know... it wasn't just an outage.

True. I guess if I'd had to cancel my credit card over this I'd be pretty ticked off. Still, I think that's quite a bit of swag being offered for the inconvenience.
Some gameplay:inFAMOUS and Wipeout HD seems to be what im going to be DLing-a friend highly reccomended the former, and ill take pinothyj's word on the latter =p
I take that quote and answer with a quote from Nick Caplin:Damn, I already have all of the PS3 freebies
Also:Nick Caplin said:I’m really sorry tha there is nothing there that you want. We’ve tried really hard to put together a list of high quality BD games, rather than simply offering cheaper PSN titles. The average metacritic rating for these games is over 84%, so these are high quality games. Unfortunately with a user base of 77m people, it is really hard to offer something for everyone.
And:Nick Caplin said:You’ll get two games for each platform
Nick Caplin said:The free games are yours to keep. It is only some of the content you get through PS Plus that will expire at the end of the month.
