Sony's Patrick Seybold just revealed on the PlayStation Blog how the company is going to make up for the great PlayStation meltdown in North America. Highlights include two free PS3 games, two free PSP games, free movie rentals, and much more.

The goodies are available to all PlayStation Network and Qriocity users after the services are back in full capacity.

When that time comes, all PSN users can download two of the following games in a 30-day window for free to keep forever:

  • Dead Nation
  • Infamous
  • LittleBigPlanet
  • Super Stardust HD
  • Wipeout HD + Fury

Same deal for PSP on two of these games:

  • LittleBigPlanet (PSP)
  • ModNation Racers
  • Pursuit Force
  • Killzone Liberation

Further bonuses include:

* A selection of “On Us” rental movie titles will be available to PlayStation Network customers over one weekend, where Video Service is available. Those titles will be announced soon.

* 30 days free PlayStation Plus membership for non PlayStation Plus subscribers.

* Existing PlayStation Plus subscribers will receive an additional 60 days of free subscription.

* Existing Music Unlimited Premium Trial subscription members will receive an additional 30 days of free premium subscription.

* Additional 30 days + time lost for existing members of Music Unlimited Premium/Basic subscription free of charge for existing Premium/Basic members.

* To welcome users Home, PlayStation Home will be offering 100 free virtual items. Additional free content will be released soon, including the next addition to the Home Mansion personal space, and Ooblag’s Alien Casino, an exclusive game.

So what do all the PS3 and PSP owners think? Is this enough to make up for lost time and compromised security? Is it more than enough? What offers do you plan to take advantage of?
