Topping up your PlayStation Network wallet is now a touch more convenient. Sony Interactive Entertainment has partnered with supermarkets and convenience stores across Southeast Asia to carry both PSN prepaid and PS Plus membership cards. For those in Singapore, it’ll be at 7-Eleven and Cheers.
Pricing for the cards are as follows:
- PSN Prepaid Card: $40 / $100
- PS Plus 3-Months: $14.90
- PS Plus 12-Months: $43.90
“This is just the start of our efforts to make digital purchases on our online PlayStation Store more accessible to gamers in the region,” said Hiroyuki Oda, Deputy President of Sony Interactive Entertainment Japan Asia. “We want to offer consumers greater choice in deciding where to buy and how to pay for their favorite digital content. These cards are also wonderful Christmas gifts for friends and family.”
Prepaid cards are already available locally at select gaming shops and electronic retailers. This announcement makes it so you no longer have to travel beyond the neighborhood to pick one up, making all those PSN offers and discounts a little more enticing – provided you don’t already use a credit card or PayPal account.
There’s a “PlayStation Plus Double Discount” campaign going on right now until 22 March.
In any case, these cards are perfect for sub-account holders or as gifts. Let’s just hope we can gift digital games in the near future too; Steam already has a huge community around gifting, and it’s about time the consoles catch up. After all, getting someone a game you’re excited about is far more appealing than plain store credit.
The PSN and PS Plus cards are now available at all 7-Eleven outlets, with Cheers stores soon to follow.
