so i go to buy warhawk through PSN, put my credit card info in to add funds, and all i get is a "credit card information is invalid" message every time i try. i am typing everything in correctly, there is nothing wrong. I cant figure out what the deal is. Anyone else having this problem?

i guess sony really doesnt want my money that badly.... whatever... i really wanted to play tonight too.

:| it's a credit card it doesn't have funds. but to answer this guy's problem. it might be your billing information. that happened to me check that. make sure the billing info on ur card is the same as whats on the ps3.

Just make sure you dont try using the card a lot in a single day (after it says credit card invalid), the credit card company might think someone else is using the card or something like that.

the address on the card IS the same as the one on my account..... this is so damn frustrating... pretty much like my entire PS3 experience....

I have that problem as well... I was trying to buy Calling all Cars. I was thinking of getting Warhawk... but... now I don't know. I haven't seen anything on the sony blog.... but I'm sure if you check the Sony Forums some people on there might know.
