Welcome Back Package Eligibilty Question

20 replies 18 views Edited May 17, 2011

Hello, I was just wondering... Before the whole PSN outage I bought a PSP and signed up with a PSN, a few days ago I went to gamestop and bought a PS3. Here's my question; I used the same PSN from my PSP on my PS3. Obviously I get the 2 free PSP games, but do I also get the PS3 games?

From whats being said its for ACTIVE acounts before the outtage so youe PSP would be eligable but now so sure about the PS3 becuase it wasnt activated at the time.

A man's ethical behavior should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death.

But technically it WAS active, just not on the PS3.

You make a good point. I guess all I can do now is hope for the best. Thanks for the input.

pretty sure its based onthe activated hardware. Otherwise i could go buy a PSP right now and do the reverse if you get my meaning.

Point is that they are rewarding people that went through this not people that are gettign systems now. jsut remember that IF you do call Sony for a definitive answer not to sound entitled

While we're on the subject of eligibility, does anyone know if the Welcome Back package counts toward sub accounts too? I'd imagine as much, no? Sub accountscsuffered the same amount of outage time as master accounts and can freely play online both pre and post outage restoration. Yet, i somehow doubt this to be true. Any clarification or insight would be appreciated.

Im going to go with no, but its plausible and heres why i say no... Master accoutns have a CC and sub accoutns can have their own... but ALL the DLC on the system istelf is cross useable. and its still one hardware line item. so.. yeah...

They may not make it that way, you don't know for sure. All i know is i have a PSP-3000 but i don't have access to wireless internet only wired, so i can't go on PSN on my PSP, the only way i can download games to it is by downloading them on my PS3 and transferring to my PSP via USB cable. If they don't let me use my PS3 to claim the 2 free PSP games, they will lose me as a PSP customer.

I'm initially leaning toward No as well, i'm only skeptic because the program was announced for ALL PSN users affected by the outage. There was no wording to oust sub accounts from the offer. However, your point is valid and also why i'm still unsure of the correct answer. Again, leaning toward Not Eligible mysrlf.

Sony recognizes that a lot of users do not necessarily have activated hardware, so it's reasonable that accounts created before the outage may be allowed to download the two free PS3 games, even though they never activated a PS3.
