Compensation plans to persuade users back to the Playstation Network have been met with a mixed response.
Sony has offered incentives to return to the network after it was hit by a major hack attack, exposing details of 77 million users.
It includes two free PS3 games from a choice of five, and a month's free membership to premium services.
However, many gamers complained the games were too old, and that the package was "disappointing".
Senior PR manager for Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) Jonathan Fargher told the BBC it represents a good offer.
"Clearly there's going to be a minority of people out there who have some of those games.
"We certainly believe the welcome back program and the choice of games that we're offering, for free, is good value."
He added that it is the first step in regaining the trust of Playstation users, future plans include an identity theft protection scheme which will be outlined to users soon.
In a blog post, SCEE head of communications Nick Caplin told PS3 gamers that they could pick two games from a list of Little Big Planet, Infamous, Wipeout HD/Fury, Ratchet and Clank: Quest for Booty and Dead Nation.
Playstation Portable users, who were also affected by the downtime, could choose from Little Big Planet PSP, ModNation PSP, Pursuit Force and Killzone Liberation.
"I would like to thank all of the developers and publishers involved in this programme for their support in making this happen. We certainly couldn't have done it without you," Mr Caplin wrote.
"You will be able to access this content once PlayStation Store comes back online and we are doing everything we can to make that happen as soon as possible."
In addition to the free games, users were also offered 30 days free Playstation Plus membership which offers premium content not available to free users.
Existing Playstation Plus subscribers will receive 60 days free.
Users on the Sony Online Entertainment network - another affected by the hack - will receive their own package of 45 days of game time as well as in-game currency.
The gaming community's reaction to the PSN package has been mixed.
"I own all of the five games I can choose from and have finished most of them," commented user Arkeologen in response to the announcement.
"Isn't there any way you can offer alternatives instead of these old games?"
However, on the US Playstation blog, commenter WhizKid105 said: "Jeeze Sony, I know you're sorry, but you don't have to welcome us back that hard.
"Not that I'm complaining or anything."
Oli Walsh, from Eurogamer.net, believes the compensation package is "fairly generous" given that the Playstation Network is a largely free service.
"They are old games, but they're all good games. The risk is that if you're a real passionate fan you've probably played them already," he said.
"I think it was a very difficult one for them to get right. I'm not sure there is something that would satisfy most people."
