    i remember hearing that sony was giving everyone free games after the network came back up and it applied to the PSP as well. i just got around to getting back on with my psp and went to the psn store and there is nothing about free games and i tried to google it and it just had a bunch of stuff on how to pirate games (boo!). anyone have any luck with this? did i miss my window?

    I only got one game, because I was having trouble deciding. Last I checked the 'Welcome back' package still shows up on my PS3, but it won't let me download the other game. I was gonna go with inFamous, but oh well. There goes any chance of me buying the sequel.

    Bummer man, you should have picked up infamous. I bought games I already owned on disc just to take advantage of it. I sold the disc versions and installed them on our other PS3. inFamous was a great game too.

    Yeah Dead Nation was a fucking blast to play, especially co-op. If you're up for some co-op on it, Smang, lemme know... just lemme know... hey, lemme know.

    Also...Wipeout...the game where I saw nothing but Smang's ass, and Twis-McBradder's saw mine.

    yeah LBP has become somewhat obsolete in the presence of its sequel. So much more to do and a better campaign mode.

    There were only 5 to choose from (PS3 games), so you didn't miss much.

    Except that InFamous, the game he missed out on, is one of the best PS3 games ever released. It's really a shame he didn't grab it.

    And for those that didn't download it, buy it. Probably find it for $20 or so, if not less. InFamous 2 is almost as good, but playing through the first one is some of the most fun I've had gaming since Batman: Arkham Asylum.

    Getting that Platinum trophy can be a bit of a drag, though. That actually lowered my enjoyment of my first playthrough a lot, trying to scour for those last Blast Shards and secure the last few annoying Stunts.

    However, on my second playthrough in Evil/Hard mode, that was a helluva lot more fun, not being concerned about 100%-ing everything doing all the missions and the like. Also, not worrying about collateral damage :ev: .
