PLAYSTATION Network Cards Update

Eric Lempel's Avatar + Posted by Eric Lempel on Dec 14, 2007 // VP, Sony Network Entertainment

If you stopped by one of of the major gaming sites in the last day or so, there’s a good chance you’ve seen one of these stories confirming the existence of PLAYSTATION Network cards, or the debut of such cards in Japan.

We’ve heard the call – usually around the time we update the PLAYSTATION Store – from loyal PS3/PSP owners who’d like to give (or receive) these cards as a gift, and from those who’d like an alternative to using a credit card to purchase things on the PLAYSTATION Store. So here’s an update: Yes, the option many of you have been asking for – PLAYSTATION Network Cards – are coming, and should start appearing at retailers in early ’08. The cards will be redeemable via the PLAYSTATION Store for PC, and on the PLAYSTATION 3 to supply the wallet with funds to spend on games, add-ons, and other paid content.

We’ll continue to keep you updated here on the PlayStation Blog as their arrival grows nearer.

Any idea on card $ amounts, I know there is a $20 but will there be a $50 PSN card? If a $50 card arrives will it be a better deal than buying a $20, i.e. a $50 card for $45 (aka bulk purchasing).

@ Darkendless
Thanks for demonstrating the fact that we can write whatever we want and proving that no one at sony reads what we post.

Please take care of comment 153.

And Update 2.10 is up. Maybe a post about it…? Either way, we have it and I suppose that’s the important part.

Like someone else already commented, this was a bit of big loss for the upcoming holiday season. Even if you didn’t sell a lot (which I believe they would) it would’ve been yet another way to get the word out on the PS3.

Still, great to see these coming.

Now just make sure you get these things next to the tabloids and Altoids at Target cash counters and you’ll be all set. Heck, put ‘em in those Check Cashing places if you can. Imagine that, people that can’t afford to cash their check at a bank can afford a PS3. And yes, they will buy a gift card to avoid getting a credit card (or if they don’t qualify for one).
