I got it like that... But whatever. I'm not going to argue with you on "it's not possible."
If you "got it like that" then the fault lies in your failing to
check the back of the card before you paid for it. Since
the cards are on the customer's side of the cash, you are
able to check them before you pay for them.
Lesson learned for the next time, I suppose.
wal marts and bestbuys are useless. they don't know anything about videogames INCLUDING their managers. Drew dont listen to him, just contact sony the support website is on the back of the card. contact them thereMessage Edited by RaidenXS on 11-24-2009 08:51 PM
One step ahead of you. I contacted Sony and they said pretty
much the same as I already stated. If you didn't check the card
before you paid for it, it's your own fault.
I'm glad you think that WalMarts are useless. For you, videogames
are a hobby. For them...ESPECIALLY their managers...it's their JOB.
After working for them for almost 5 years, I'll trust thier opinions and
advice before anything said in an online forum.
I'd like to know who'd actually waste their time trying to figure out the code for the card considering that the number of people who actually view this topic isn't very high and there's way too many possible combinations for most people to try and figure out. I doubt anyone actually will steal it, and even then the only solution to this problem is a new code it seems.
Goddamn, I'm still pissed I wasted 20$ because Wal-Mart gave me a **bleep** product and doesn't want to give me a new one...
I work for WalMart Canada here in Montreal and after reading
your post the other day I checked this out during my lunch
I went to the electronics dept and had a look at the PSN cards
and there's no way that anything could have gotten "ripped off"
because the card is plastic like a credit card and comes sold as
2 pieces that are attached. The only thing that is able to be re
-moved is the screening (film) over the code that you redeem
on the PSN. If the code is entered on the PSN before the card is
activated then it won't work. To activate the card the employee
runs the card through the card reader at the cash and then you
pay for the card. I talked to the manager of the electronics dept
and she informed me that the cards are the same in the US and
Admit it...you simply rubbed the film too hard and removed the
numbers/letters underneath. What did you use to remove the film?
Your fingernail should be more than enough. Why should WalMart be
expected to pay for your inability to properly rub a screening on a
card? It's not their fault...it's yours. You didn't get "ripped off"...you
Next time, rub a little lighter.
...Watch what you say on the internet man!
The part where the code is at is smudged off for whatever reason. I can't pick out 3 numbers/letters. The part of the code I can pick out goes as follows: X2??-?9Bt-R4K4. Personally, I just want to contact Sony or something so that I can get a new code. I really don't like getting ripped-off out of 20$ from Wal-Mart.
I would try to guess the 3 numbers but thats alot of different combinations.
