Details on the PlayStation Network's Welcome Back Program

To some PlayStation loyals, it seems like it was forever ago that the PlayStation Network and Qriocity services suffered massive hacking attacks, causing a complete shutdown of the system. For the weeks that followed, Sony was rebuilding, moving and restructuring their servers and security protocols to prevent this from happening in the future. Unfortunately, it happened at a time where big events were about to happen to the PSN, specifically a Black Ops Double XP night and the release of some key games, like SOCOM 4 and Brink.

Last week we did see the Network come back online, at least in some limited matchmaking and gameplaying form, with the PlayStation Store and more enhanced services to follow very soon. Sony also announced that they would be offering a "Welcome Back" package to its PSN members.

We now have the details of that package for North American and European users and that is after the break.
