Same happened to me! I couldn't pick one game, then I back out, and when I come back, I only have the option to pick 1 game, now I have none. My friend got his games simultaneously as I did.

Ditto over here...damnit i knew I should have waited...I hope I see this in my queue eventually. :-P

This has got to be a joke. I happily go to the "Welcome Back" section, I go to select my game, and tells me I need "Welcome Back Program Free Game 1" or something, and then it tells that there has been an error, so I try again and again.

When I go back to the general "Welcome Back" section, it automatically erases the option to download game 1, so I frustrated go to the second option and the same thing happened again.

What the hell is going on? What an awesome way to get back into PSN by not getting the promised games.

i've managed to nab one game myself, and lost the other due to a string of errors like what you've encountered. this problem seems rather widespread at the moment, so i'm sure sony would eventually come around to fixing it ... or so i hope *crosses fingers*

Same here. I tried earlier to get Infamous. It said to pick the free game option first so I did. Then when I got to the actual dowload of the game it errored. When I got back to the first screen my first game option was gone. So I gave up for a couple hours and just tried again. Same thing. Now I only show the PSP options and never got any PS3 game. When I tried to go back into the PS Store it said "under maintenance" again. Ive been pretty patient through all of this, but this is ridiculous. Sony, did you even test this welcome back program to see if it works before you told us it was ready?

I was finally able to get it. I went through account management/ services/ Sony Promo. Even though I kept getting errors I kept trying and it worked. Downloading Infamous and LBP now.

Same errors for me it appears i made my choices and lost out. Guess sony really doesn't want anyone to buy a console from them  or any other product for that matter

For all the people experiencing problems such as selecting the "Get Now" PS3 Game 1, and then losing the option to select the games to download, do not worry. Go to Account Management > Transaction Management > Services List > SCEA Promotions, and then select PS3 game (or whatever free game) and you should be able to see the list of games there

Wow fantastic information thread!   Great post.   (I'm dowloading my 4 welcome back games (and theme) as we speak, i'm on the fence about trying PSN + though.
