All of those freebes, not enough for PSN users?

Firstly to point out, this wasn't a comment made by someone in the U.S. So hah on that for everyone thinking we're the big complainers.

Sony yesterday detailed all the freebes that PSN users can receive for being denied access to the service for nearly a month. It's not a bad package when you think about it. If you use a PS3, you can select 2 of the following games for free:

  • Dead Nation
  • inFAMOUS
  • LittleBigPlanet
  • Super Stardust HD
  • Wipeout HD + Fury
If you have  PSP, you can select 2 of the following games for free:

  • LittleBigPlanet (PSP)
  • ModNation Racers
  • Pursuit Force
  • Killzone Liberation 
If you have a PSP and PS3, you are allowed to get 2 games from each category (score!) Other goodies include:

A weekend of free movie rentals (titles to be announced at a later date)
30 days free of Playstation Plus for non members.
60 days free for Playstation Plus members.
Current Music Unlimited subscribers will receive 30 days free.
100+ free items from Playstation Home users.
And if you play an MMO on the PS3 or any of the SOE games, you have access to a load of free goodies.

Not bad considering Microsoft and Xbox Live, a PAYED SERVICE, only offered it's users a download of Undertow. This is a massive upgrade in comparison.

Of course it's not enough to some people. If you're one those individuals who already has all of the games on the list, there's really not much else that can be offered. And you probably need a life outside of your home. You're still getting the Playstation Plus for free. In response from one of the Sony employees, they did their best to come up with an array of titles that would benefit a majority of their users. They have 77 million subscribers. They're not going to please everyone and they don't have too. Need I remind you, PSN IS FREE. -_- So just take the free offers and quit your whining.
