We're so excited to welcome you back to PlayStation Network. With the PlayStation Store back online, we've been getting all caught up this week, having launched an abundance of amazing content for download on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable devices across games, movies, themes and DLC.

Today, we're excited to launch the Welcome Back program to thank you for your loyalty, and below, we've got what you need in order to get access to the included content. So, here's a list of questions about the program. If you don't see your question below, mention it in the comments and we'll do our best to provide an answer.

Thanks again for your patience and understanding as we restored the PlayStation Network and Qriocity services - your support has meant a lot to us and is greatly appreciated.

Brandon Roy Scores Cover of NBA 10: The Inside for PSP

200°
261w ago - SCEA PR Manager Eric Levine has unveiled the cover of NBA 10: The Inside for PSP today, which includes basketball star Brandon Roy.

To quote: Hey all, today we are thrilled to announce that Portland Trail Blazers All-Star guard Brandon Roy will be the cover athlete for NBA 10: THE INSIDE, which hits stores on October 6th, exclusively for PlayStation Portable. Below is a first-hand look at the brand new cover art.

Roy will be entering his fourth pro season when the NBA schedule kicks off on October 27th. Since being drafted sixth overall by the Blazers in 2006, he's taken the league by storm winning Rookie of the Year (2007), All-Rookie Team (2007), All-NBA Second Team (2009) and two All-Star appearances (2008-2009). I'll put it another way, as of February 16, 2009, Roy has hit 24 shots where he tied or won the game with 35 seconds or less–the guy is clutch!

Which is why we're psyched to have the silky smooth guard as our ambassador for the newest version of our NBA franchise, which has been the #1 rated PSP NBA simulation for 3 years in a row now*.

From the same makers that brought you MLB 09: THE SHOW, NBA 10: THE INSIDE really offers fans two games in one package–a superior simulation experience for the hardcore hoops fans while also giving gamers a...
 

A Peek Inside a Dynamic / Animated PS3 Theme

500°
262w ago - Today SKFU has shared his findings when peeking inside one of the new Dynamic / Animated PS3 Themes that have recently been introduced in PS3 Firmware 3.0.

To quote: "A quick look at the new animated themes shows that they are not really different to the common themes. I just downloaded the free theme from the Japanese store and decrypted the HDD again to see what is inside the package file. Well, it is:

1. JP9000-NPJQ00006_00-0000000000000000.p3t.edat

You see a normal .p3t file which is the same type of data, the old themes use. It is just encrypted as .edat file which is decrypted and installed on the PS3 on the fly after downloading it.

2. PS3LOGO.DAT

The default picture you see in any game when you press triangle - information about the game.

That's all. Wondering if there will be a homebrew program to develop your own animated themes soon, or even a SONY tool like the one for the old themes?!"
 

Video: Inside Tekken 6's New Campaign Mode on PlayStation 3

50°
273w ago - Sony's Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared some details and a video today on Tekken 6's new Campaign Mode, as follows:

Ever since the early 90s, I've been hoping for a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup-esque combination of fighting and beat'em ups ("You got Streets of Rage in my Street Fighter!").

A number of games have tried this formula (including Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub-Zero and God Hand), but at E3, something caught my eye.

We were showing a number of trailers at the PlayStation booth, when I spied [Register or Login to view links] wielding a chain gun.





Later on, I was able to chat on camera with Tekken 6 game director Katsuhiro Harada. He was happy to share details on this Scenario Campaign Mode's length, character customization, and online play.
