No doubt PS3 owners have lost some faith in Sony, but with this package I feel they are doing their best to regain trust from the millions PSN users.  Leave comments below and tell us what you think of the "Welcome Back" package.


  1. That's pretty accommodating. Not sure I could expect a company to ever be more accommodating than that. Wish their free game was a little bigger, but sounds nice.

    Yeah its too bad I only have interest in Wipeout.

  3. Ditto, it does kind of seem like a lot but at the same time it's not going to appease all the people out there infuriated with Sony.

  4. PS3 sucks. shitty package for a shitty company. GG

  5. GG indeed
