Sony Welcome Back Free Games Offer for PSP Too. But…


Sony’s apology to its Playstation Network members for their multiple recent security problems is to offer a couple of free games. This offer is not limited to the PS3 home game console. Playstation Portable (PSP) owners can take advantage of the offer too.

I fired up my ancient first generation Sony PSP, connected to WiFi, updated the firmware and took a look at the offer on the PSP’s browser. You can see a photo of the screen above. The question is: Do you really want to use the Sony Playstation Network again just to get a free game or two? For now, I decided not to.

FYI: Sony has an Identity Theft Protection Offer. You can sign up for it by visiting the web page below before June 28, 2011 .
