Best price around at the moment. Don't know why anyone would buy direct from the store with a card when you can do it this way. Just a shame they have stopped offering the variety of amounts (£20, £25, £35 and £50) as it makes buying decisions easier and deals like this a piece of cake to find.

Anyone know if these are just the voucher cards or do they come in the blu ray cases as they are nice to have incase any other boxes I have get broken or damaged.

Is there any word from Sony about what thy are prepared to give those PSN users who already own the five "Welcome Back" games they're offering, especially considering 3 of those game have already been given out for free on PS+ already and the other 2 had hefty discounts for PS+ users.

I mean.... Little Big Planet!! How Old Is That!!!!

You are to be offered the continued use of a free service to play online, plus the optional download of a selection of game titles (that you may, or may not, already own) for both PS3 &/or PSP consoles.

Further items are (or will be) available. Not all of these are listed at the dedicated "Welcome Back" page:

What were you expecting?

"Little Big Planet" [PS3] was released on 5 November 2008.

It's a valid question > I assumed you may have all those titles already as well ( does that or why does that not also annoy you if you do) I and many loyal customers who have already purchased all those games they are now offering for free.(well 2 titles) I have emailed Sony to ask for my money back on the 2 titles from the ps3 list that I can have for free, unless they can provide me with 2 free games I have not already paid them for.

I cannot seem to find in your link

where they say they are making other titles available at some point in the future as part of the welcome back initiative

The reason you cannot find the information is because, as I mentioned, "not all of these are listed".

If you have the Blu-ray Disc editions of those titles that are only available to download from PlayStation Network, why not sell your existing (physical) version & take the offer of the free (digital download) version?

Of course, you do not need to accept the offer presented to you just like it should be noted that Sony Corporation/Online Entertainment/Computer Entertainment did not need to offer anything.

because many users will not have the storage on hdd and many will have rubbish internet like me whereby it would take forever to download only to start it for it to tell you you have to re-download the newer version at another 22 gig

Sony did need to offer me something which was my days of psn+ reimbursed and they certainly should have to offer a compensation package for allowing fraudsters access to my personal secure data which at any given moment can be used to impersonate me without my knowledge. TBH they should be fined heavily.

What's ... not listed the promise of extra free items ? or not listed as in does not exist(or as an empty promise some sony rep has mentioned / rumour etc. Where have sony said they have extra items not listed for users as a thank you ? Is what I was after

I know you do not like the implementation of PlayStation Network's "update" facility compared to that provided by Xbox LIVE. You have mentioned it a few times previously.

I agree with you. My Internet Service is also far from fast (relatively speaking, or reliable; certainly within the last six weeks).

As you are probably aware, the loss of service to your PlayStation Plus [PS+] subscription is catered for.

If you disagree with the "compensation" proposed, do not download any of the titles offered. Do not agree to the any (revised) PlayStation Network terms & conditions if/when presented to you & seek legal advice to mount a claim against Sony.

Many people have been affected by the breach of security. Sony are aware of the implications.

The UK Government has already discussed the situation: [ http://www.develop-online.net/news/37702/Chancellor-Lessons-must-be-learnt-from-PSN-hack ].

Ultimately, however, it was your individual choice to store your details outside of your control.
You need not have stored your true date of birth, your real name, or any payment details.

The fact that this has been such a widespread security issue should, hopefully, make you (& many others) think twice about sharing your details with organisations from this point forward.

This aside, not all the items to be offered are summarised on the "Welcome Back" page.

Guerrilla Games, for instance, have something planned that has not been announced to the public yet.

Rightly so. Why should I lose subscription days (all I want are the days I have paid for) if psn has been off for a total of 45 days then I want my 45 days back at least.

If payment details were stored you needed to use actually name as on card otherwise the data don't match and the sale falls through due to a security measure.. I did not have to enter my data but I wanted to purchase items and at that time no prepaid cards existed nor did they for a very long time and therefore it was the only means for me to support Sony in the purchasing of goods they had on offer.

Sony however should have looked after my data, actually Sony should not have had my data stored other than on the machine I entered it on. The data was not sniffed from my local machine but from theirs where they had this data stored against my wishes. I did not actually agree to storing of this data)other than the general terms and conditions of the psn network whereby if this was specifically mentioned then I did subsequently agree unbeknown via not having read the full wording of the said t&cs ,other than on my local machine.

Purchasing a full game from Sony via the store and then downloading your purchase e.g 22 gig (if such a download exists e.g maybe infamous or any other full retail title) then installing your game and starting your game to enjoy to be entertained by your new game to be greeted with an update is required for you to play this game and you have to download the full 22 gig update(or rather the latest version of the game) is simply Pathetic and uncalled for when the 2nd 22gig latest version of the game should have been the only available version on the STORE for purchase, download etc It's that simple, therefore when that is not implemented the platform / marketplace has failed.

Sony have not done us a Favour in reminding us of the vulnerabilities of storing credit card / password details. It has always existed however they have taught us not to trust this info with them.

Any details held in trust with a third party are at risk regardless of who that third party is. Sony are not the first to be breached in this manner, & they will not be the last.

Two notable retailers in the last few years, for example, are ShopTo.net & Play.com.

If paying by debit or credit card via PlayStation Store you were prompted at the end of the transaction to confirm if you wished the details to be retained.

Even if you confirmed you did, & I am presuming you did confirm this, you could remove the information thereafter using the dedicated Account Management pages at Playstation.com or via the Account Management XrossMediaBar menu option.

Sony were breached in a completely different manner

Sony are responsible for the data loss, I really cannot understand why anyone would defend Sony over this with no vested interest or biased blinkered view, actually goodnight, I've had enuff, you're right Sony are wonderful, caring and competent.

I am not defending any organisation.

I do believe, however, that anybody that offers their personal details to a third party should be aware of the consequences of doing so.
