PSN Cards now available at Blockbuster

Sighted today in Belmont, CA:

Oh, and because my wording might’ve been a bit confusing (we didn’t *practice* this, we just walked in!), you will of course be able to purchase WipEout HD normally via the PLAYSTATION Store. Now, there’s another option as well.

This is good for those people without credit or bank cards. Hopefully i’ll see a lot of people on WipeoutHD(does it have online?). This is really good news.

Thanks Jeff.

Is this just in the US at Best Buy or is it also Canada, as we have Best Buy here as well ?

    That\’s Blockbuster, not Best Buy… Colors are the same though.

    I\’d advise calling your local location first to make sure.

Arre they available at all blockbuster stores?

+ MercuryPDX on September 15th, 2008 at 3:30 pm said:

Are they priced accordingly or are there extra charges involved (eg. $20 PSN Card = $35 US)?

    The $20 card is $20 out the door.

+ Tiduz on September 15th, 2008 at 3:30 pm said:

Does SCEE maybe have anything planned for Europe? not necessarily PSN cards but another payment method besides a credit card?

none of my friends have one, so i cant buy any psn content :(


13

+ REDNAVE on September 15th, 2008 at 3:31 pm said:

Unless tax is 1 cent, you’ll be forced to buy the $50 PSN card to be able to buy the $19.99 Wipeout HD, kinda sucks for those who don’t want/have a credit card to use on the PS store.


14

+ effeff on September 15th, 2008 at 3:31 pm said:

Finally!!

But Jeff two questions:

1.) If i take one card for $20… does the card cost exactly $20 or will “Blockbuster” wanna have some bonusses by me?

2.) If i wanna buy something on the Store i have to pay an extra tax (for example Jeopardy! $14.99 + $1.23 Tax)
So if I buy a $20-card and want to buy wipeout-HD for $19.99, are the Taxes included in this 19.99 or do I have to buy a $50-Card because W-HD will cost $21 ??

(Hope you understand ^^)

    I called the store back (I didn\’t actually buy it when I was there). They said all taxes are included – the 20 dollar card is 20 bucks.

    + Jeff Rubenstein on September 15th, 2008 at 4:07 pm said:

    They will continue to roll out in more stores in the coming weeks and months. I\’ll make sure we announce them when that happens.

+ nmc75 on September 15th, 2008 at 3:32 pm said:

Will these cards work in non-US PS Stores?


19

+ Nymo on September 15th, 2008 at 3:33 pm said:

so, How about Rite Aid and 7 Eleven stores? Blockbusters are a bit of a walk away where I am in San Francisco, but if it’s only Blockbuster right now, I’ll go ahead and take that walk!

Thanks for the update!

Wow, I love how you made a video to prove that they’re there :P

And after tax that $20 card wouldn’t be enough for WipEout HD…


21

+ NewYork214 on September 15th, 2008 at 3:35 pm said:

@ effeff

just change your address to a different state that doesnt charge tax.if that’s legal? PA doesnt charge for tax.

This is a good step. Now, please have these cards available in majority of retail stores(Best Buy, Circuit City, Wallmart, Target, etc) as well as online retailers such as Amazon, Newegg and such.

Please make it happen Sony. Thanks :D

When will they be available at Amazon.com?

+ THATPSPGUY on September 15th, 2008 at 3:49 pm said:

Jeff you know the answer to my ever lingering question, you didn’t really answer GGCAN’s question. ARE THEY AVAILABLE IN CANADA? I don’t care if its best buy or blockbuster or jumbo video or sobey’s or dominion or eb or the source or sears or thecorner store down the street. A simple yes or no would totally suffice, atleast now they won’t be overly expensive on eBay……..

+ crazypenguin on September 15th, 2008 at 3:50 pm said:

THANK YOU JEFF!,
also, no offence, whats the point of getting it on amazon?

+ lakaihigh on September 15th, 2008 at 3:51 pm said:

I think I’ll keep my account linked with my parents’ credit card! they actually haven’t noticed that I keep adding funds to my wallet on the PSN. its a funny vid though Jeff, looks like it almost was meant for youtube. Oh and look out for the poo dolla!

Greetings Dean,

Thank you for taking the time to write. At this point in time
Blockbuster does not have plans to carry PSN cards. Please check
back with us sometime mid 2009.
We hope this helps, should you require any further assistance please
do not hesitate to contact us.

Have a nice day.

Why not have a 10 dollar card? You know specially for ppl who may just wanna try out buying something cheap on the PSN first. Im not saying 20 is expensive.

I’ve been to two Blockbuster stores around the Bay Area, CA and both had them “available” but NOT for “sale”.

The employees at both locations tried ringing them up but they cannot sell them since it doesn’t scan properly. Apparently this is a franchise-wide problem, and they don’t know when they’ll solve it.

Yes, the video shows they are “available” but perhaps you should try making a video of you trying to “buy” one and come up empty handed because they can’t ring it up.

    Hmm, our systems show that people have been buying/redeeming them, but I\’ve got the appropriate people looking into your claims. Thanks for the heads-up.
