    Attempting to browse the Welcome Home area of the PSN network is an experience currently plagued with errors and download problems. If your download freezes and you are forced to reset your PS3, you may reboot to find out that you now have 1 remaining free download with the failed download oddly missing from your download cart. Instead of waiting more than 1 hour on the phone with Sony (1-800-345-SONY), try this alternative solution (see below) for restarting your missing download.

    Just complete the cart transaction and 'buy' them, and all you'll have to do is recheck your Download List.

    Is it just the US that has been given these free downloads yet? I tried yesterday and there were nothing there yet :/
    i really wished they gave 2 free downloads of anything, or maybe a $XX amount discount code though [​IMG]

    Alright! Guess I'll check today as well then [​IMG]
    I'll get Dead Nation, and have to get the Wipeout Fury expansion though I think wipeout is boring as hell [​IMG] I have wipeout HD (boring), inFamous (Great game!!!), Little big planet (which i think sucks) and Ratchet and Clank I got with the system (way too short :/ like a two hour game on the difficult setting)...

    yeah the PS+ subscription is a trick lol.
    Will, apart from LPB, I have no particular interest in any of the other games (or I have already played those).. but go for inFamous.

    Got mine today no problems.
    I went for Dead Nation & Little Big Planet as I have or have had the others in the past.
    Kinda wish I'd got Infamous again though instead of LBP just to do an 'Evil Mode' run to see the differences.
    LBP, from what I've played today just isn't my kind of game as I originally figured. Still gotta say good show from Sony thanks for the free games!

    I've been getting consistant error messages but just keeping at it and refusing to let the damn thing beat me got me through. And thanks to having a UK and a US account, I have four new games. Dead Nation and Super Stardust HD from the US store, Wipeout HD Fury and Infamous from the UK store. I already own all the other games [​IMG]

    The only thing I find irritating about the whole situation is that games downloaded for free via my new PS+ time only remain free as long as my PS+ subscription is maintained. So while I could download another half a dozen free games, they'll delete themselves when my time expires [​IMG]
