Sony has outlined details of the 'Welcome Back' package for the PlayStation Network's eventual return.

PSP owners will be granted two free games from a list of four when the system is back online. The four games up for grabs are set to be revealed later in the week.

The blog post on the PlayStation site also noted that European customers will be receiving identity theft protection similar to that which North American users are being offered.

However, due to each country in the EU handling identity theft in different ways, the company said that this will be a "very complicated process", and details will be provided at a later date.
