Can prepaid Visa or MC gift cards be used on PSN?

24 replies 13063 views Edited Apr 14, 2009
I was told that they do work so long as they're the kind you have to register your personal info to i.e. name and home address etc.  Anyone here ever use one?  Because if it does work I'll probably pick one up since Sony hasn't brought the psn card to Canada yet (hint hint Sony).  So, if anyone can tell me where I can pick up such a card in the GTA (greater Toronto area) I'd be very grateful.  My banks has them but they aren't the type that the user registers.  Thanks.

Yes I used one to buy Killzone Liberation for PSP. But u have to activate it online the directions are on the back of the card.  But I couldnt unload the whole card because it only lets you put money in increments of $5.00 at a time and my balance was 49 something for some reason should have been 50. I think there was some sort of activation fee for activating it online but I dont recall them mentioning it.  Im not familiar with Canada but I know they have them at Wal-Mart and probably Best buy. If you have any big retailers up there that would be the first place I'd try.

I use a "Green Dot" prepaid Master Card. You can get them at any Radio Shack store. They work in the Playstation Store.
