So I can make a second account on the same PS3 and gift myself? That would be sweet
As mentioned above, the easiest and safest thing to do is to create an account made specifically for "gifting" yourself. This way you won't have to rely on others who promise to help you but then rip you off.
It's also faster and you will be sure that you won't be given the wrong gift in error.
put down a ton of tokens...gifted myself the T-Rex crate.....aaand drum roll...... got a dino in a box that says "This Activity is currently unavailable" > ... makes cool sounds but no space, companion, or Lmo..not even a T Shirt that says "I Got Scr*wed By Lockwood"
