Meijer hypermarket is now selling 20$ and 50$ Playstation Network Cards! See the attached pictures, coming straight from GT user ManaKnignt.
Hey N4G, that was me who saw the PSN card. I took that picture and the one at the store. Right now I'm having issues getting the PSN Card to work (I keep getting an un-expected error). If anyone wants more pictures of the process, I can upload them.
*waves* :D I hope you can get your PSN card to work soon! :)
Seriously? That sucks dude. Keep us posted on your progress. Some of us have been waiting for these cards for a long time now. Good luck!
To let everyone know, I'm still having no luck with the PSN Card. I tried at the PSN Store Although blurry (I can take a new pic), says there is $20 on the card: http://i29.tinypic.com/wu0b... This is a link to the error: http://i26.tinypic.com/2wo9... I should try again tomorrow, in case it takes over a day for the validation or whatever to go through. I seem to be the first to test this. I still have my receipt also, which has XXXX followed by a number, so I think it was swiped correctly. I had no issues with a CC before, but I prefer not to use one (which is why I bought the PSN Card). I'll continue to update, but I emailed Sony support.
Why don't you call SCEA?
The PSN card does not have any phone # to call anywhere, so I wasn't sure what to call. It just gives you a website, us.playstation.com/card, where it tells you all the terms and such.
Just call SCEA and let them know of your problem. (and let us know too) 800-345-7669 (800-345-SONY)
let the invasion of the american store begin. us europeans can now raid all the good games that come out instead of having to wait decades just to get some good game. SCEE burn u guys, now you cant hold us back anymore
What does it get you??.
You pay either $20 or $50. You buy A-BUNCHA-FUN-STUFF from PSN. :) It's a "cash card", more convenient than using a credit card. @juuken...I can't wait for Wipeout HD, SOCOM, and Street Fighter IV, Metal Gear Solid 1, etc. There are rumors of a video store (music, tv, movies) coming this summer as well.
A bunch of PSN goodies. Been waiting for these cards because I want Street Fighter HD Remix and Wipeout.
its about time! ive been waiting to buy things on psn foreverr!!
apparently, the stores only exist in Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, and Kentucky. Looked on their site, and the cards don't seem to be available their, yet. Hopefully I'll be able to find some here in California, soon.
Shouldn't Sony give some sort of announcement telling us these are going on sale? They seem to just randomly pop out from time to time. lol
SCEA says they are starting to appearing in retailers, when someone asked about it on their blog. Crap, now it tells me my code is no longer valid, and I was getting an error in the first place. Crap, I'm out $20 and REALLY angry right now.
I am so confused as to their strategy in releasing these cards. It is as though they want to slowly TORTURE international PS3 owners like myself. I dream of the day I can easily buy these cards on Amazon. For now Ebay will just have them for double the price because of low supply. Get your act together Sony!
I was told to call the PlayStation Network line at 1-877-971-7669, so I called that. I was first asked whether I checked the PC and PS3 stores, which I did. I was asked info and whether I entered the pin number right (it is case sensitive, which I did). After being on hold several times, I was told to go back to the retailer Meijer, and have them re-activated, since it must not have been done right. That's what I'm looking at doing today, and hopefully it works.
Don't get excited yet, since I'm still troubleshooting with Sony and Meijer over the issue right now. Hopefully I get something solved.
