Evidence Of PSN Cards Spotted

We've been waiting for the PlayStation Network pre-paid card for quite a while, and although Sony has already revealed it's on the way, we have yet to see it in stores. Furthermore, we've had numerous readers ask us when to expect them.

Well, a Kotaku reader has spotted a couple of price stickers - one of them pictured here - for the PSN card. It's a pre-paid card for the amount of $20, and the reader also claims there's another sticker for a card with $50 on it. Sony has yet to provide an official release date for this little beauty, but we imagine it's right around the corner. For those of you who aren't familiar, it's a straightforward premise: if you don't have a credit or card or don't wish to use a credit card to purchase things on the PlayStation Store, these pre-paid cards are just what you'll need. Simply pay for the amount on the card in cash (or however you wish), bring it home, log on, and pick up whatever you want. You'll basically be using money that shows up in your account.

With so many worthwhile downloads on the Store these days, it's no wonder that a lot of gamers are anxiously awaiting these cards. Not every PSN user has a credit card, you know.

I picked up a $50 PSN card about 2 weeks before the Call of Duty 4 download came out. I picked it up at Luke AFB, BX in AZ. They had 3 stacks about 4" deep each, but I have never seen them anywhere else.

I saw them at a gas station here in Daytona Beach, FL. And at a gas station in Orlando.

Why would Sony tell us that they are on the way last month and then not ever send them out. I talked to the owner of a GameStop near me and he showed me the email that was sent to him that said that they would be here shortly after the release of the DLC for Call of Duty 4 and the release of GTAIV. Nearly a month after GTAIV and nothing... Why? I need them now!!!
