Lost “Welcome Back” free games from PSN
With the PSN Store back online, we PSN users can now download our free PS3 games courtesy of Sony’s Welcome Back package. In my excitement however, I accidentally navigated away from the Welcome Back section without using the Free Download Game Icon to purchase a game (for $0.00 :)) and it disappeared from the item list without anyway of activating it again from within the Welcome Back section of the PSN.
If you tried searching for the game manually and add it to your cart, you’ll be billed the actual price :/.
To re-chose your free Welcome Back games (provided you haven’t picked one yet), here’s what you do:
- On your PlayStation 3 or PlayStation Portable navigate to the PlayStation Network icon on the XMB
- Log into your PlayStation Network account and choose Account Management > Transaction Management > Services List
- Choose “SCEA Promotions” from the list of services displayed
- Select either “PS3 Free Games” or “PSP Free Games”
- Choose “Select Content” to pick your free game and start downloading it

dude, i didn’t even get to download any of the stuff included in the welcome package, i went to the ps store and it said that the content could not be accesed in this account, what the hell?? i also went to Account Management > Transaction Management > Services List, and i don’t have any. Can this be fixed?
Go to Playstation store > account management > activate account > click games > press activate > Press ok > try to play your game!
Also, are you using a different account from the one that was used to buy/download stuff off PSN?
yes, this is a different account, i dont remember the password of my other account and when i try to get a new one it asks for my date of birth, i put it in and it says its wrong, i m ight have typed it in wrong when i created my account, so it wouldn’t let me reset my password so i just created a new one. I´ll try what you suggested, thanks.
If thats the case then you really need to have access restored to said account. I remember reading than psn passwords can be reset thru qriocity, I’ll update you in a bit
Thank you so much! I downloaded the icon and then backed out because I wanted to watch the demos of the game. To my surprise, I couldn’t download the free game after that. You saved me a free game! Thanks!
I accidentally chose the demo version of a free welcome back game for ps3. It’s on my xmb list for download but haven’t downloaded it yet. Can I delete/swap it out for an actual other free welcome back ps3 game i prefer that isnt a demo?
