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."

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???

Godmars2901772d ago

Pretty sure MS has done the same thing at some point. Not that they didn't get the money back.

xHeavYx1772d ago

@Godmars290 you are right, I forgot about the $0.25 some people got from MS

Peppino71772d ago

Yay, another round of getting nothing :(

Godmars2901772d ago

Was that from the attempt to monetize Achievement points or from some sponsored deal where they basically got money for giving money away?

badz1491772d ago

I hope I get it this time

WeAreLegion1772d ago

I wish I could give more than just one bubble up for the Peanuts reference.

Finally got mine...and used it all on Ecolibrium.

CaptainYesterday1772d ago

Wait you bought Ecolibrium? It was free the other day I thought it still was!

FunAndGun1772d ago (Edited 1772d 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!"



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.

freezola751772d ago

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

TheTwelve1772d ago (Edited 1772d 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$ ?..

kreate1772d ago

I did. But I didnt receive anything this time around. Maybe for ppl who missed the first set of 10 buck giveaway?

Philoctetes1772d ago

Same here. Time to buy Motorstorm RC -- and I'll have enough left over for a theme.

3-4-51772d ago

I hope I got the credits this time. Missed out on the last one.

t0mmyb0y1772d ago

Me too. I thought they sent it because my message was "Wheres my $10 Sony" lol guess just coincidence.

DevilishSix1772d 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.

No love for PSV users :(

CaptainYesterday1772d ago

Thats not true at all I got the $10 and I have a Vita also PSN has been giving out free games too :)

Sharius1772d 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

Th4Freak1772d ago (Edited 1772d 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.

jon12341772d ago

@th4freak quick correction, you've had your psn account since 2006, the Psp had no account system in place :)

MysticStrummer1772d 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

Th4Freak1772d ago (Edited 1772d 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.

porkChop1772d ago


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.

admiralvic1772d 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.

Hicken1772d 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.

Th4Freak1772d ago (Edited 1772d 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.

Nerdmaster1772d ago

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.
