As a console neutral consumer, I can say that a few of my favorite downloadable games of this generation are PSN exclusives.  PixelJunk Eden, Flower, & Echochrome come to mind.  However, there really aren't THAT many great ones that XBox owners are missing out on.  I would be more upset about missing out on an HD version of Bit.Trip.Runner from the Wii.  With that said, I still think this policy is crap.

The people all over the various gaming communities calling people whiners, ungrateful, etc. are seriously driving me crazy right now.  I don't need or feel like I deserve free crap from Sony, but if they are going to offer a welcome back package, then it should absolutely benefit all users equally.  There really is no argument here.  And the fact that the one group of people that is not going to benefit from this is specifically the most loyal customers only makes it worse.
Hypothetically if a customer had purchased everything Sony ever put out before this there would be no way for Sony to offer them something free that they don't already have. So Sony did the next best thing thought up a list and said here pick two. There really is no better way to do this type of thing. The people that say we should have just been credited $20 to our wallet miss the fact that Sony can't legally do that across all territories (since PSN uses a cash value system and not make believe points)

The point is Sony couldn't please everyone and those few people that are gonna throw a fit are doing it because they feel entitled to special treatment above and beyond what everyone else is getting.
My idea was that they should have looked at the games that were supposed to come out over the last month and the games that are about to come out over the next few weeks on PSN (anything in the $10 to $15 range).  Sony should have picked one of these games that looks like it has promise but will likely not sell very well.  Strike a deal with the developer to give them some cash so that the game can be given out to all customers for free for a week.  This way everybody gets a free game that they are guaranteed to not already own.  Sony makes nice.  And some lucky talented developers get a lot of exposure to their work and a much larger audience to market DLC to going forward.  That's what I thought would have made the most sense.

And your stupid comment at the end just shows your lack of reading comprehension.  The vast majority of people complaining aren't asking for special treatment...they are asking for equal treatment.  Everybody else gets 2 free PS3 games and they don't.  This really isn't that hard to understand.  I swear some of you are going out of your way to be as daft as possible.

@yakov456: Ummm...these 5 games aren't exactly expensive.  LittleBigPlanet and Infamous are old and have been under $20 for a while.  The 3 PSN games are all cheap and have been on sale.  Seriously, it's very likely that some of the people have all 5 of these spent less than $75 to get all of these over the course of 2 or 3 years.

If Nintendo is really going to charge $40 for a Pilotwings game that only has 3 vehicles on a rehashed island from Wii Sports, I think they will have sunk to a new low.
