Now that PSN is back up, Sony is revealing the details about its much talked about “Welcome Back” program and we are sure you are going to love it. Keep in mind that these details only apply to North America. This package will be made available to all existing registered PlayStation Network and Qriocity users in North America (US and Canada), and will be made available shortly after we have fully restored the service. More specific details about these offers and eligibility requirements will be posted as the services go live. Now there will always be people out there that will say that this isn’t enough, but Sony can’t please everyone.
