I don't think that will work, because you have to spend the money out of your PSN wallet. The PSN subscription card (I assume you're referring to PS+) will just add PS+ to your account, it won't put any money in or out of your wallet.


Yes, I meant PS+. Too bad, I was hoping it would show up as a purchase from the wallet.

Thanks for the heads-up. I was considering both Hell Yeah! and Tokyo Jungle. Glad I didn't buy them yet; they put me about a quarter of the way there already.

Sorry guys, I don't think this is worth it. It's equal to a 20% discount. I'd just assume buy games on sale for 50% off. Last holiday season, they had some good deals (or was it right after the holidays?). I'd wager they are trying to milk you with a 20% discount now so you will pay more than in a couple months. Plus, this is actually worse than an actual 20% discount since you have to give them the full 100% and they refund 20% which is locked up in their ecosystem.

Know I'll get:
$49.99 PS+
$14.99 Dark Souls DLC
$11.99 Tokyo Jungle

Bound to be discounts on Resident Evil and Dead Space 2 DLC for Halloween. Hoping for the DS2 DLC bundle to be $9.99.

Hmmm, I already bought all the FF games but I could buy the rest of the old school RPGs.

This could work out really well for renewing PS+.

If you were to buy two years of PS+ in October, and pay for it using the PlayStation credit card, you'd get $30 back in PSN credit, essentially paying for PS+ at $35/year instead of $50/year.

If Mugen Souls was going to be available through PSN I'd jump on this. But without that, I really can't justify picking up anything else along with NFS: MW.

Good time to get Borderlands 2 on PSN, especially since you can share it with your roommate or family, and play co-op together.

I also need to buy the Walking Dead season pass.

Oh sweet, forgot about Dark Souls DLC. Maybe I'll be close to spending $100 this month anyways. This, Tokyo Jungle, might as well re-up on PS+ since it's ending in a couple months, Tomba!, and then I don't have much more to go.

Question about ps+. If you get DLC such as the starhawk DLC that just came out for free, after your ps+ runs out you may no longer play that DLC correct?

Hmm...let's see $50 for 1 year of PS+ on PSN. $50 worth of PSN stuff.

Yeah, I can spend/find $100 worth of stuff on PSN!

Now if only, I had $100 or had taken advantage of that Langer's promotion.

So can I put 100 dollars in my wallet without spending it and still get 20 back?

Multiple sites have it set for October 23 for the US, then other countries that same week, for $15 or 1200 MSP.

Hmm, I guess I'll put off purchasing One Piece: Pirate Warriors until October then. That, Okami HD, and the Dark Souls DLC will add up to about $85, so I doubt I'd have trouble finding something else to finish off the $100.

Are you serious? On what planet is that considered "Spending $100"?

Thinking of grabbing NFS: MW. Is it a completely dumb idea to pay $53.99 for it? Got a feeling it'll be $40 2 weeks after release!

Aw, I just got myself a $50 PS Plus card, I haven't even touched it yet though.

If I return it for a regular PSN card, am I able to use that to buy the 12 month subscription to have it count towards this?

Yeah, that would work. However, I'm not sure how easy it would be to return an unused PS Plus Subscription card. That is probably a YMMV sort of thing in the store.

Unless you are a HUUUGGGGGEEEE NFS fan and must have it day 1, I would say yes, dumb idea.

EA games have a tendency to drop like a rock. Maybe not 2 weeks, but if you can wait a few months $19.99 isn't out of the realm of possibility. I've learned my lesson a few times, I thought I got a steal on SSX at launch for $34.99, and it only took a few months to be $9.99 using an @GAMER coupon.

Probably closer to impossible than YMMV once the card has been activated. I mean if you are going to the store anyway it can't hurt to try (other than wasting your time), but it's probably like a .001 thing.

Free DLC on PS+ doesn't need an active subscription, those and avatars will be free forever.

I was never one of those Black Friday hopefuls but im pretty sure any new releases coming out in October will be $30 on Black Friday like last year (Uncharted 3 even tho that was November 1st and Battlefield 3)

Resident Evil im sure wont be discounted knowing capcom.

Was planning on getting these sooner rather then later anyway. (see below) Glad I didn't grab FF and MvC this week. I can spend another $30 easy, hopefully some more Zen Tables and if not I can always re-up the PS+

Final Fantasy III - $20
Okami HD - $20
MvC Origins - $15
Killzone HD - $15
