Are the PSN Cards worth purchasing instead of using the credit card on the Playstation Store?
They're plastic, they're filtering onto our landfills though.
What isnt? Recyclying is just a ploy invented to inject money into the "economy." Same as the whole green agenda, same as global warming. Sure the trash goes into the landfills. Wtf doesnt? Im sure theres a lot YOU could do to keep all that plastic out of the landfills. Which is hardly our worst problem.
Wait. What!?!! We environmentalists have an agenda now? I mean, other that stopping pollution. And...global warming...wat?
Yea, dasbeer. There's SO much you can do to keep that plastic out of landfills. I think you should become a horder. Keep everything plastic you buy. KEEP IT ALL! For the love of god and all humanity, keep it. #dontdumpplastic
No they are not. They are made out of cardboard :/ I would know i buy them all the time
@psuedo You must be the kind of person who doesn't leave home without a tinfoil hat I use both, that's how cool I am
Recycling is a thing and you don't need to get a physical card to keep your credit card off of Sony's servers. So yes, it's worth it.
PSN Xbox itunes ext are Great imo! I don't like using my cc for small cash things or like adding my personal info into anything so... yea and what if your young and don't have any other way to buy something like a game or dlc if you don't have a cc? AND!!! i recycle them with my paper/plastics i just pack them in with other small paper/plastic to get recycled like all should be doing and if your not your a slob. keep the world clean!
Or you could just buy digital PSN cards and avoid that problem altogether...
@psuedo God you're an idiot, the same idiots that continually make our world worse everyday. Global warming is very real and it has been proven by so many physicist and scientist that we are the absolute cause as to why it is happening so fast, none of them will deny that it is a natural occurrence, the earth goes through many cycles but we are increasing the rate by the massive amount of emissions we push into the air. On top of gasoline ruining or only protection from the sun and space itself, our ozone layer. Hell any simpleton can see that actual data and understand we are the cause just by seeing the amount of carbon dioxide that is in the air that significantly increases every year, no other way to get such high carbon readings from anything else. Gasoline and all these factories all produce carbon dioxide, something we cannot breath and we are putting too much carbon dioxide in the air that eventually even plants can't handle the transfer, which again has been proven in great detail as to why. History constantly repeats itself and we even used to use mercury in gasoline, once again scientist tried to warn everyone we were literally filling the air and water with mercury at an alarming rate, you know how long it took for people to finally realize... After tons of people were getting sick dying, had ridiculously high amounts of mercury in the air and even the scientist risking their lives to study the crap died from mercury poisoning. So finally after several years, they finally removed mercury from gasoline but you bet your ass those people who were selling the mercury used in gasoline fought it tooth and nail regardless of all the proof people brought to the table proving mercury is highly poisonous to us. As if it wasn't an already know fact before that since the entire Roman empire fell because they chose to use lead pipes to run their water when even then they knew it was poisonous, as always money comes before safety and since it was cheaper to use lead they didn't give a crap and look at them now.. Dead, one of the biggest empires just completely gone because of their own selfish greed and stupidity. Now the entire world is set on that same track, as almost every country doesn't really give much of a shit especially places like China, I mean have you seen China...? Pretty damn good example of the future we have to look forward to and that is just one country. Here were are again and as always history is repeating. People act like everyone is getting so much smarter as time goes by but we keep making the same idiotic mistakes over and over again. I love how you seem like an expert on plastic, actually no, just like idiots messing around with nuclear matter which they still haven't even figured out how to dispose of, they don't even know what to do with plastic either. It isn't about knowing what to do with it but just about knowing how much money it will save them and bring in. Go to any island on this planet now and you will see what they doing with the plastic since they don't have any way of actually getting rid of it besides just dumping it. Not even that plastic is poisonous to humans, we aren't even supposed to touch it let alone actually drink from it because of the BPA actually saturates into our bodies, there is an alarming increasing rate of deformities and miscarriages because of plastic. Again what a lovely future we have to look forward to, a nuclear filled, blistering smog hell when we are all mutated and mangled from our all dumb ass decisions.
I have to agree, I only use the psn cards to get my sub paid because I dont want my credit card on any sub site.
As the article says, yes they are worth buying.
Read the article, not just the tittle.
I feel like you're asking for too much from these people.
If hashed credit card info and passwords aren't enough security for you why not have that one extra layer of security by not using your credit card at all? There is no good reason to not have PSN cards, it can only be a positive for those that choose to use it.
Any cashcard is worth buying...
Yes, they have always been my preferred method for making purchases on PSN.
I use PayPal now. If I didn't, the cashcards are ideal.
Yes I use my card today and Sony added $10 from my card and I didn't even know it I was only trying to buy a $5 dlc ill just stick to the card
the minimum amount they can take from your card is 10 dollars, they always tell you before hand too.
No it is $5. I know because I just had bought Marvel Lego.
Well, it was $10 I didn't add funds tho I just purchased a dlc pack for tlou and it automatically took $10 from my card the dlc weapons pack I bought was only $6
Skate-AK in australia it's 10 dollars, didn't know that wasn't universal
Have always used psn cards, never credit card or the new paypal service
Is the only way i can buy games from the store, so...
I feel safe using it.
If you pay for the cards via credit / debit card then you may as well just pay directly through PSN seeing as your bank details are processed either way. Personally I've never bought a PSN card, I've always topped up my wallet using my own bank card.
Its the only way to buy games from US store if you live in EU
I never used a credit card. Speaking of PSN cards, I think it safe to say I haven't bought one in about 4 years.
I always use those also. I usually stock up also when they go on sale and I feel safer not having my credit card info on psn or xbox live. U never get a discount if u just add money into ur account right from ur credit card.
I just bought two yesterday.
I've never bought a card but I'd imagine that you're taxed for buying it at retail. Whereas if I just made a purchase over PSN I'm not charged any tax (where I live). So I would save some money just paying online.
Actually I've never been charged tax buying one of these pre paid cards at the store.
Yes. Nothing against putting up my card info on Psn but if its there I'm more tempted to make a purchase even if I shouldn't. With the cards I'm limited. Plus you never need more than $20 anyway... Any full game I buy physical.
one thing that would be nice is to be able to get a card that is less than $20
Yes, because I want my DC info on the least amount of sites/services possible.
How is entering a PSN code troublesome? Shit is less than a phone number, xbox live code, and Wii friend codes LOL.
Thanks for the useless article pal, If you have a credit card, the online store. If you don't have a credit card, buy the PSN card.
F-yeah. Never use a credit card.
Yeah!! Its worth more than ur article
They should be reloadable. That'd be a better option.
Considering how stuff like this gets hacked like Target did etc then yes these are better than putting your CC info out there. Then again PSN never got hacked yet either... oh wait.
Stupid article it's safer using a psn card, just like it's safer to use a gift card to purchase on online.
i dont really understand the security aspect. if at any point in time you purchased the content via a cc/debit card your information is already on a system doesnt matter whether thats at target, walmart, paypal or PSN.
Loving how the article ignores the fact that a large percent of the population doesn't even have a credit card, which is one of the biggest reasons they even exist.
Does anybody know if it's possible to use a uk Visa card on a US account? Prices here are well over the top, yet cheaper in America.
Why is this even a news story?
