I already had Wipeout + Fury, and got LBP with my Plus membership, so that leaves me 3 remaining choices. I think I'll get inFamous and Dead Nation as I'm not much of a platformer guy.

Of course, the store is down again right now so I can't make my choices.

It takes a few goes to get the store up, but it's still up... To get the games back if you can see them anymore, go to account management, transaction management and then to services the promotions by Sony is in there, click on it and your back Able to download remaining games your allowed...

Not a bad list of games if you don't have them already. I'd plump for Infamous first as the sequels is out soon and your save file might be transferable.

Quest for Booty is awesome but only 3 hours long. Dead Nation is ok, but really repetitive. LBP is great, but a bit redundant thanks to the sequel, good starting point though.

Wipeout is dynamite, the inclusion of the Fury expansion pack is a great bonus too as it adds some cool extra modes.

Hi Mike, this might help (thanks to EU PS Blog)

If you navigate away from the Welcome Back section of the store without choosing your free games or exit the store completely you may need to follow the below in order to choose and download your free games.

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 “PlayStation Network Promotions” from the list of services displayed

Select either “PS3 Free Games” or “PSP Free Games” and then choose “Select Content”

You will be taken to the store to choose your remaining free games.

You'll only see them if you were a PSN member before the service initially went down.
