Yeah, PSN really needed this, I would trust a Ugandan more with my credit card details than Sony

Implying you're old enough to have a credit card. Because I can only fathom a child to make such a ludicrous, and incorrect troll statement.

When PSN got hacked credit card data was a big concern for Sony. We know this because Sony said so.
DragonKnight  +   826d ago
Sony never said CC data was compromised. In fact they said it was encrypted. But, you're of the FUD camp that spreads misinformation and lies. The only thing Sony said MAY have been compromised was stuff like your address. In other words, public domain material. They sent messages out to everyone as a precaution even though CC data was encrypted, and NO ONE came forth with any legitimate claims against Sony and if they had, Sony would have been willing to provide up to 1 million in insurance for their losses.

So, again, children without a Credit Card shouldn't talk about the grown up world involved in owning one.

@Dragon, please go easy on the kids. They are still learning how to use the computer. If you give them the smack-down, they may never come back again :O or they may even go complain to their parents.

Everything I said is fact and public record, everything you said was damage control. You guys are like those Republican teabaggers when they say things like "We ain't gonna listen to no fact checkers"

Quite frankly, this really should have been implemented years ago, especially during the time when North America was having supply issues with the PSN cards. What the hell took so long Sony?

I was expecting this to be integrated into the PS3 not the web, but oh well at least we're able to transfer money into our accounts. But hopefully in the future we would be able to do it from our PS3s.

added $25 to my account,about 4 hours ago. it still hasnt registered in my account. there's a message saying "There may be a delay in processing the transaction." no s**t.

i hope its just a delay in the network because everyone sign in back in.

i normally use a website to buy my psn cards digitally, i use "jerry cards". if you have a paypal account you receive the card in less than 15 minutes.

I just tried to add funds by pay pal and it didn't work for me.
KosmoCrisis  +   821d ago
Should be working now.
Barneyco  +   820d ago
It is working now. No more psn cards. Thats great.
KosmoCrisis  +   825d ago
this post was not the source to the news. PSNStores first reported it on Jan 19, around 7am PST. It was tweeted out, IGN picked it up followed by VG247 as well as this site. No one properly has been citing the source and that's where our blogsphere has gone.

PayPal transfers work fine in the US. If it doesn't work and you've followed the instructions on PSNStores.com, mention your state or region or contact PlayStation support.

Can you put any amount in the store through Paypal. Like $2.
KosmoCrisis  +   821d ago
Nope. Only increments of 5, 10, 20, 50. I had the option of filling my wallet until it amounted to $150 as well.
