Sony sends out another round of $10 PSN credits

GE: "Last month, Sony sent out $10 credits to select PlayStation Network users. The criteria for receiving the voucher was unclear – and still is – but those who missed out on the bonus in February may have a small surprise waiting on their PlayStation 3 systems today." (PS Vita, PS3)

It's funny that, while certain people pay to play online, other people get $10 out of nowhere. People still have a hard time choosing a console???
Godmars290  +   651d ago
@xHeavYx
Pretty sure MS has done the same thing at some point. Not that they didn't get the money back.
xHeavYx  +   651d ago | Well said
@Godmars290 you are right, I forgot about the $0.25 some people got from MS
Peppino7  +   651d ago
Yay, another round of getting nothing :(
Godmars290  +   651d ago
@xHeavYx
Was that from the attempt to monetize Achievement points or from some sponsored deal where they basically got money for giving money away?
badz149  +   651d ago
is this US only?
I hope I get it this time
WeAreLegion  +   651d ago
I wish I could give more than just one bubble up for the Peanuts reference.
TheTwelve  +   651d ago
Finally got mine...and used it all on Ecolibrium.
CaptainYesterday  +   651d ago
Wait you bought Ecolibrium? It was free the other day I thought it still was!
FunAndGun  +   651d ago
Man, that little game is quite fun!

The first time my Maanhare gained level and grew a horn, I said "oh hell yeah!"

Then for the first online challenge I placed like 5,000 and I was all "damn, I'm never getting that under 100 reward!"

:D

@CaptainYesterday

The base game is totally free and I'm pretty sure it will stay that way. There are microtransactions if you want to really get into it though.

Sup 12, I got mine yesterday too..

Fist bump w/Sony. (No explosion, that's wack LOL)

Haven't decided what to spend it on yet.. maybe a Vita game perhaps. Or I'll probably by a couple more episodes of TWD..

Anyways props to them I could definitely use it.. peace
TheTwelve  +   651d ago
@Captain -- I used it to buy items *in* Ecolibrium, which is free.

@funandgun --- Ecolibrium takes a lot of patience but is super rewarding!!!

@Freezola --- whassup my dude

Did you buy something from psn after the first 10$ ?..
kreate  +   651d ago
I did. But I didnt receive anything this time around. Maybe for ppl who missed the first set of 10 buck giveaway?
Philoctetes  +   651d ago
Same here. Time to buy Motorstorm RC -- and I'll have enough left over for a theme.
3-4-5  +   651d ago
I hope I got the credits this time. Missed out on the last one.
t0mmyb0y  +   651d ago
Me too. I thought they sent it because my message was "Wheres my $10 Sony" lol guess just coincidence.
DevilishSix  +   651d ago
This is what is awesome about Sony. I have received around $50 so far, but I was an early adopter and upgraded my PS3 a couple times, but the network is free (unlike M$) and they give PSN dollars for just being a PS3 owner.
Th4Freak  +   651d ago
No love for PSV users :(
CaptainYesterday  +   651d ago
Thats not true at all I got the $10 and I have a Vita also PSN has been giving out free games too :)
Sharius  +   651d ago
what are you talking? ps3 and psv use the same account

in 1st round many of my friends whom have only the psv get this 10$, but they cannot redeem this code via psv, then few day later they get that code again via email so they can redeem this at the website
Th4Freak  +   651d ago
PS3 and PSV use the same account but remember that the products are attached to that account so Sony knows which platform you have.

I've had my PSN account since 2005 when I bought my first PSP and i've never recieved anything from Sony and this the second time Sony send free credit and i've never seen an article about PSV users recieving it also users in forums and reddit reported that they don't see the code in their PSV but when they go into the PS3 the message pops up.

So you're lying to me or you have extremely lucky friends.

@th4freak quick correction, you've had your psn account since 2006, the Psp had no account system in place :)
MysticStrummer  +   651d ago
Whether it shows up on your Vita or not, PSN is still used by both. Just owning the console or handheld won't be enough to get the credit, I'm sure. How much money have you spent on PSN, buying games, avis, themes, DLC, Home items, etc? I've spent a lot, and I got the $10 credit last time. Friends of mine who hardly spend any money on PSN got mad and wondered where their credit was. lol
Th4Freak  +   651d ago
It has nothing to do with how much you spend on the PSN, I left these 2 links so you can read that users reported that people who have spend only a few bucks got the $10 credit, it is completly random.

However my concern is that PSV users has reported that they don't get the $10 credit but also a couple of users that own PS3 and PSV said that the message is displayed in the PS3 but not in the PS Vita.

@Th4Freak

That's correct. I got the $10 last time and it only showed up on my PS3. Every single one of my messages on PS3 was also showing on my Vita, the ONLY one that was missing was the $10 credit. Seems to be only for PS3 users.
admiralvic  +   651d ago
@ Th4Freak

It's actually a fundamental problem with the Vita and isn't unique to this instance. Basically any message that involves a link to the PSN store or at least the PSN will not appear on the Vita. Perhaps because of how the Vita is coded, which means it can't support it or Sony didn't implement it yet. Whatever the case might be, it's a universal thing.
Hicken  +   651d ago
I can't tell you whether or not you get it if you're SOLELY a Vita user, but while I got the message in my inbox Tuesday on PS3, it didn't show up at all on my Vita.

I suggest contacting Sony to see if there's some other method by which you can check your PSN messages and acquire the code, if there is one.

Used mine, by the way, to buy Persona 2 EP.
Th4Freak  +   651d ago
I just did it and they told me that they're not aware if it's displayed or not in the PSV however they will send a email with the code and they also told me that the free $10 credits promotion it's over and the only promotion right now is the one where you spend $50 and get extra $10. Hmm odd.

I got $10 in the previous round and I used it plus $2.50 that I already had on my account to buy BlazBlue for Vita.

I don't mean to be rude, but it really annoys me when everyone acts like USA = North America. There's 23 countries in North America, including Canada and Mexico.

Gothdom  +   651d ago
Congrats to all who receives one. I'm not one of them, but it's cool to have a free 10$ for those who did :)
Heisenburger  +   651d ago
I had the same mentality when they gave them last time. I didn't get one then, but I got one this time.
:)

So hopefully you get yours next time.
HmongAmerican  +   651d ago
I think you have to be online at the time. When they sent out messages. I'm online often and sometimes I received messages from SONY or maybe you have to except SONY sponsorship when sign up for PSN or others SONY PlayStation sites. Those are my guesses.

Nerdmaster  +   651d ago
Are they only giving $10? A friend of mine got $50 on the first round, and we suspect that it's because he spends A LOT on the PSN. But I didn't hear of anybody else getting $50.
Roper316  +   651d ago
the only $50 gift card I see offered on PSN is if you sign up for a Sony credit card. Me thinks your friend is not telling the truth or he signed up for the CC and left that part of his story out.
