So, pre-paid PSN cards have supposedly been available for a while now, but really only on a small scale at regional retail chains Pamida and Meijer. Gearing up for the holiday season, though, Sony has finally pulled the trigger on releasing PSN cards nationwide. The push began earlier this month at Blockbuster and Riteaid stores, and, as Sony announced today, major chains like Walmart, Best Buy and select Sam’s Club outlets will be the next to get cards in stock beginning in October. Then in November they’ll even begin popping up in Barnes & Noble College Bookstores. PSN cards come in $20.00 and $50.00 denominations and can be used to purchase digital download content for PS3 and PSP from the PlayStation Store in lieu of a credit card.

“The PLAYSTATION Network Cards are an easy way for PSP and PS3 fans to obtain great games, movies, TV shows and other entertainment through PLAYSTATION Network and we are pleased to offer them at major retailers nationwide,” said Eric Lempel, director, PLAYSTATION®Network Operations, SCEA. “With the holiday season right around the corner, these cards are an ideal gift option for friends and family, whether they are movie aficionados, dedicated gamers or something in between.”
