The lights are on

In addition to the free games, PSN users will also get 30 free days of PlayStation Plus access, 100 virtual items in PlayStation Home, and temporary access to free movie rentals.

Sweeeet. Downloading now :)
This sucks. The store kept failing on me. Better luck tomorrow I guess.
Need to get oooooooooon! holy kow!
Hell yes! I saw the Rainbow Six: Vegas 2 1 hour trial this morning and since I haven't played the game in over a year (sadly I sold it) I've been itching to try some terrorist hunt. If its as good as I remember then I'll buy it ASAP, but I needed that PSN+ first.
Cool, I really just want the Playstation Plus stuff but you can't say no to free games.
