139w ago - While PSN cards have been available at retailers for some time now, JoyStiq.com (linked above) reports today that it appears Sony is now offering PlayStation Plus cards at Target as well.
To quote: "You'll soon have an easy way to give the gift of Hulu Plus eligibility and discounts on random PSN games.
Tipster BlindNoir photographed a PlayStation Plus access card found at a Target store, redeemable for one year of membership to the premium service.
Plans for these cards were first (casually) revealed by Sony's Susan Panico in June.
Of course, you could just buy a PSN retail card and use that to pay for a Plus membership (or anything else), but this move gives the fledgling PlayStation Plus more visibility during the holiday shopping season."
196w 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."
198w ago - Today a Best Buy listing for PlayStation Network Cards appears to reveal that $10 PSN Cards are coming soon to PlayStation 3 and PSP owners.
No word yet on whether they will also hit Europe, however, US buyers can currently add them to their carts for $10 each.
To quote: Looks like the $10 PSN cards are real, and coming soon.
Currently only $20 and $50 PSN cards are readily available for purchase, but soon enough the $10 cards will make their way to store shelves, while giving everyone a more affordable choice to reward or gift that gamer in your life.
200w ago - Several sites are reporting a rumor today that PSN Cards will finally be coming to Europe on October 1, 2009.
To quote: October 1st will be an important day for Sony. With the launch of the PSP Go and the much-awaited Gran Turismo PSP already confirmed for that day, now it's been reported that the same day what European PSN users have been clamoring for years will be finally released: PSN pre-paid cards.
While we're labeling this as rumor since it hasn't been officially confirmed yet, the timing of release makes it seem very likely, given that the download-only PSP Go launches on the same day, it makes sense for pre-paid cards to accompany it.
We'll keep you informed when Sony finally confirms the rumor.
