I noticed, that if before i was able to buy US PSN cards at Amazon by price advertised on them $50 for $50, it seems Sony closed all doors to buy US PSN cards. I believe it is Sony step to rip off “3rd world countries” to increase their profit, because citizens of this countries can’t fight, and they are helpless and defenceless.
Sony are badly losing money after they detained Geohot hacker, and hackers screwed all their infrastructure as revenge. Microsoft also with their reputation not in best shape, and only what this two big players can do – squeeze all juices from their customers (who are enough stupid to stay with them), and then die, leaving in cold all their customers.
I switched to steam+pc (as i know they have also some hardware for steam too) and i dont regret that.
