Update on PSN Cards

Eric Lempel's Avatar + Posted by Eric Lempel on Sep 26, 2008 // VP, Sony Network Entertainment

As many of you have been asking for the PLAYSTATION Network Cards (especially in light of the huge PLAYSTATION Store content update yesterday)), we are excited to let you know that we have a full roll-out at major retailers on the way. The PLAYSTATION Network Cards will be available at Walmart, Best Buy, select Sam’s Club outlets in October 2008, and at Barnes & Noble College Bookstores locations in November 2008. Cards are available in $20.00 and $50.00 denominations and are currently offered at BLOCKBUSTER, Pamida, Meijer Superstores and Speedway store locations.

We’ll continue to update you as these cards are available in these stores and as they become available in more retail locations.

In light of the numerous problems associated by paying by credit card on the PSN Store, I attempted to buy a PSN card yesterday with no luck. So I had no option to buy anything. Are you going to fix the credit card adrress verification system? Make the site more user friendly?

Also, I missed out on the $5 COD4 map pack due to problems with YOUR system. And your phone support were not helpful. Will you help????

@ joeboosauce, make sure your address is the exact same as your bank for your credit card has on file. If it says “oak st”, you say “oak st”, not “Oak ST”, since it’s case sensitive. If you live in a apartment, you might have to put it on address line 1. People I know with problems, fixed them by one of those two methods.

I’ve been buying PSN Cards at Meijer since June. It’s nice to see other retailers get them, but I’m sticking to Meijer for them.

Finally some stores I actually go to pretty often. I’m glad to hear this.

Hi Eric, great news about the availability of the PSN cards. I was at Target yesterday and was hoping to see some but didn’t. Hopefully they become ubiquitous soon.

I HATE to be a subject changer, but I have to ask since you are the man with the answer: what’s the latest for in-game voice-chat across games? I remember you stating that Sony is evaluating this.. I think with this feature, it will be the final nail in the coffin for “what makes Xbox Live better than PS3′s XMB for online features” (which as more and more features are rolled out for XMB is a very very short list).. please respond and let us know what’s up, is it at least still be looked at?

@3 Stoffinator

What Jeff advised me to do earlier when they were at Blockbuster is call our headoffice in Canada for Blockbuster and inquire.

I’d suggest when they announce they are available at these store on this blog later in Oct 08….is to call a store or the head office and ask if Canada is also getting them at this time, or when they expect shipment.

Ok, Ok!

This should be a good thing!

Cool. But I won’t actually need them.

+ jazzyrider on September 26th, 2008 at 11:32 am said:

Can we get these online? I’d like to send my friends and brothers a card for Christmas.

but what about Canada?

Wonder if some day tPSN cards will be available in WalMarts and Sams Clubs outside the US.

+ Theossie on September 26th, 2008 at 11:46 am said:

Thanks for the information.

Question though, would it possible in the future for us to have the option to purchase and game from the PS Store for someone else… For example

I have family in Florida. I’m in Georgia. And I want to buy MM9 for both of us…

Would be cool if I could enter their PSN ID for them as like a gift purchase and them maybe the game would show up in their download list for them when they sign on to the network

+ StalkingSilence on September 26th, 2008 at 11:46 am said:

Smart move, probably won’t buy any for myself. But good idea.

+ DG on September 26th, 2008 at 11:52 am said:

Are you sure you don’t want to wait a few more years? I mean you don’t want to rush it do you?

These make great gifts. For me.

I’ve been told I’m hard to buy for and I suggested PSN cards and Live cards. I recived no PSN cards and a ton of MS points on my Birthday last week.

Quit slacking on the cards Sony! They should have been out by now.

+ WilliaM on September 26th, 2008 at 11:55 am said:

Thx for the update, when can we expect these cards in europe?


34

+ Letters2Kay on September 26th, 2008 at 12:00 pm said:

As I’d posted before, I think it’s dangerous to say “PSN cards available at Blockbuster!” when about half of all Blockbusters are franchise locations that will most likely NEVER see them. I’d ammend it to read “PSN cards are available at CORPORATE Blockbuster locations”…

will they be out in europe ???????????

Still not quite the walking-friendly locations for me, but at least that’s more places to get before the holiday season!

+ ROLO_ONFIRE on September 26th, 2008 at 12:42 pm said:

Great, just bring those to Mexico and Latin America


43

+ Nynja on September 26th, 2008 at 1:01 pm said:

Nice. Please don’t sell out to GameStop.

I would imagine they want a cut of the money since they claim downloadable content it eats into their profits which extends to the longevity of a retail game reducing the number of trade-ins (where they in-turn rape the publishers and consumers).

GameStop has no right decide how the industry should operate.

Good news! I have a valid credit card so this isn’t going to affect me, but it’s nice that you’re updating folks!
