224w ago - It appears Sony Europe has money to burn, as they will be selling PlayStation Network Cards in standard Blu-ray game cases in Europe.
They will be available in September, in both £20 and £50 denominations.
To quote: "PlayStation Network Cards are, for some, the only way to add credit easily to your PlayStation Network wallet.
The idea is simple - purchase a PlayStation Network Card from a shop, enter the 12-digit code and fill up your Store wallet.
The odd thing? SCEE will be using real plastic Blu-ray boxes to house them in, presumably so it makes you think you're getting something tangible and also, we guess, to make the retail outlets a bit happier."

They are right up there on my list of annoying people right next to vegetarians and politicians.
I am not sure about Europe to be honest and here in the states no games are really out on display on a shelf. They are either in a case or one copy is out while the rest are behind the counter. It will take up just as much room as a PS3 game so I think it is a fair.
Also, I would think that it is going to be a bit harder to steal in a case instead of being glued to a couple inches of cardboard.
Who cares what they sell it in? I am just happy that they exist.
If a store is really worried about the space, then they will not sell them. Also, if you buy this will you honestly think it is anything else other than a PSN card? I can see this being an issue if you cannot read. Aren't game manuals already in boxes like with the game?
this is stupid why waste the money and plus it takes up space in the store. I mean what do they need an entire shelf for a bunch of psn cards lol. bad form sony making people think you get something more for their money whats next selling game manuals in boxes.
