  • LittleBigPlanet

  • Infamous

  • Wipeout HD/Fury

  • Dead Nation



Possibly about 2 more as well, will have to wait and see, you can pick 2

I think out of those I'll be picking up Wipeout HD and Infamous, unless any more good ones are revealed

http://kotaku.com/5802411/

 
And two PSP games from the following list:


  • LittleBigPlanet PSP

  • ModNation Racers PSP

  • Pursuit Force

  • Killzone Liberation


 
Other stuff is standard as revealed before:

  • 1 month free Playstation Plus(2 months if already an active user)

  • 1 month free Qcriocity(not that much of a big deal imo)

  • Playstation Home users will receive 100 items and a free mini game


Possibly some other sort of free deal for NZ users, but I guess we'll have to wait for Sony Australia/NZ to reveal some more details
 




I have moved across the ditch.  Now residing in Melbourne as a VOIP/Video Technical Trainer/Engineer.

However as stated  "The PlayStation maker has outlined its "Welcome Back" offering for Europe and North America."   This is not the offering for NZ/AUS, that hasn't been officially announced yet. Chances are we will most likely see the same list of games (or a slight variance of them), but until then this is pure speculation.

Considering AU/NZ are considered part of SCEE I'd say it's certain.

Yep i take it back.. although not on playstation.co.nz, if you go here it does indeed look like NZ's offerings. Was reading earlier today on slashdot or somewhere that the NZ announcement hadn't been made yet and that it could be different.. apparently not :)

LBP and WipeOut for me..... hopefully they keep those for the NZ offer but as mentioned above, no reason why not.

Thinking about it, who cares what regions get what games....... why not offer same games worldwide ?

sweet as, thanks for the heads up guys.

How big are these downloads?

Keen on Little B/P and Wipeout/HD so this is great for someone who doesn't often has the PS3 hooked up to the internet.

yea, those games are definitely for NZ too, according to official PS website. Dead nation and Wipeout are my picks. Hundreds of people are moaning at the game selection, looking at the comments, which I think is ridiculous. People can be greedy.

Sweeeet - It's gonna be LittleBigPlanet for me. For anyone that doesn't have WipEout HD/Fury or are considering downloading it, do! It's awesomeness.

Hope they arent too big to download... apparently we will only have 30 days to download the games from the time the PSN Store comes online.

Think I could kiss goodbye my 20GB cap ? :)

That's where I was coming from too.

Thanks for the heads up about the 30day thing, hopefully someone can feed back when this does kick off please?

Yeah think it's little big planet and wipeout for me.

Quite a few users online asking that, and basically at this point in time, nothing. Some are asking for PSN vouchers instead but someone pointed out that the games theyre offering are Sony owned, so therefore its costing Sony stuff all to give them away whereas vouchers are worth a lot more....

Ahh, but you can bet your behind that Sony will be writing down the cost of these games at full retail value on their tax return.  Funny how it all works out quite positive for Sony, huh?
