PSN Cards Available In Military Exchange Services Locations

While the PlayStation Network cards are indeed available at several relatively obscure retailers around the world, they're not yet on sale at places like GameStop. However, as we gather more evidence of the PSN cards popping up in a variety of new places, it seems obvious that gamers will soon be able to purchase them just about anywhere.

Thanks to one reader, we now know of another store that currently carries the PSN card: AAFES, or Army Air Force Exchange Services. The picture here shows the $20 and $50 PSN cards on sale in just such a location, and it seems we can also expect the cards to be available at NEX (Navy Exchange Services) stores as well. If you are a member of either armed services branch, you have access to such places, or if you know a member, they can get you a visitor's pass. It's good to know that, at the very least, Sony is taking care of the guys in the service, and this should indicate a more widespread distribution of the long-awaited PSN cards. If you're not yet familiar, the cards act very much like a pre-paid telephone card; you simply pay for the amount on the card any way you wish, return home, and dump the money into your PSN Wallet. From there, you can use the funds to purchase whatever you like on the Store.

AAFES and NEX retailers are located throughout the U.S. and in other countries, so if you are in the military or know someone in the military, perhaps you could score a few of these cards right now. But in the meantime, we'll continue to gather up as much information as we can; it shoudn't be much longer before they're commonly sold everywhere.

What is the delay with these? Is there something legal that prevented sony from spamming these everywhere, or did they just want to gauge interest first?

Definitely something Sony has dropped the ball on, with all of these great online DLC games out, you would think they would make it easier for minors, paranoids, or those without credit to buy it.

This should have been out last holiday, better late than never though

maybe sony has problems with "microsoft's" gamestop.think about it; why is gamestop (n many other american companies) heavily supporting xbox n givin little or no love to the ps3? perhaps we're pointing our fingers in the wrong direction?

When ever i go out, i check EB GAMES but they never have it, they always tell me "come back later, we might have it". I hope Sony hurry's up and get the PSN Cards worldwide, if not then get them in U.S/Canada.
