SO supposedly people have bought the PSN cards but I cant find them anywere. So I bought a walmart money card which is a prepaid visa that can be used as a debit or credit cARD. pOINT BEING i CAN USE IT EVERYWERE BUT ON THE PSN! Anybody else have this issue?

I have bought other things online and registered with..*gulp* my LIVE account but for the life of me I cant get it to work for the PSN. Does it work with the PSN and has anybody else used these prepaid visa's from walmart? Anyhelp would be great. Thanks.

Like the previous poster stated, try registering the card first.

I have used a prepaid Visa Credit Card and it worked fine. The only thing is that when you buy the Prepaid CC, you usually have to pay an activation fee upfront. So, for example, a $50.00 Prepaid CC could cost you $55.00 depending on the terms and conditions.

Well, if you use a CC, you usually pay a finance charge anyway. With a Prepaid CC, it's like your paying for the finance charge ahead of time.
