SCEE’s head of communications Nick Caplin has confirmed via the EU PlayStation Blog that European PSN users will be getting a Welcome Back package similar to the one previously announced for the US. He also states that anxious gamers can expect the service to go back online as early as next week.
“Each country has a different way of handling identity theft; some offer relatively sophisticated services whilst others are much more modest,” said Caplin.
“We are currently in the process of identifying how we manage this situation and once the program is ready to launch, we will provide details of exactly which services are available in each country and explain how to sign up.”
“We hope to do this early next week.”
According to Caplin, EU PSN users will have opportunity to select two PS3 games from a list of five, PSP users selecting two from a list of four.
“We will let you know exactly what games are available very soon,” said Caplin.
