Ever since the talk about Sony releasing PSN cards came out, PS3 fanboys have been waiting for the time that they could actually get their hands on one. Well, it seems that the time has arrived! According to Kotaku, someone has spotted price stickers for the PSN cards in a local US store:
Reader Josh was doing a spot of shopping in his local Meijer the other day and came across a couple of price stickers – for the long-awaited PlayStation Network pre-paid card – sitting in the aisle of the gaming section. No cards, just the stickers. The one pictured is for a $20 card, while Josh says there was also a sticker up for a $50 card as well. Sony are still quiet on a precise release date for these, but with this information heading out to retailers they hopefully won’t be too far away.
When I first read other blogs and news reports on the PSN card, I thought that someone had actually gotten his hands on one. Apparently, news becomes a bit different unless you go back to the original source. Anyhow, price stickers must mean that the product will be on the shelves pretty soon, right?
For those who are unsure as to what the implications of the PSN card are, it is basically a cash card which you can use to purchase downloads from the PlayStation store. This is perfect for those who do not have credit cards – yes, not everyone has one – and for those who are in other countries and cannot use their credit cards for the store.
