Unless you figured out the pattern of who they sent them out to, I'm not sure why you assume that you should've gotten one.


Entitlement issues.

Square is taking beta applications for FFXIV, which mentions having a code that came with FFXIII giving you priority access. What is this code that it's talking about?

If you have a FINAL FANTASY XIII (PS3) Members code, please enter it here for a chance to receive priority access to the PS3 Beta.

I assume the Square Enix one. Didn't know which of mine was which, so I think I signed up once with an XIII and an XIII-2 code

just called Sony about not getting the $10 coupon. for reference, i have multiple years of ps+ (had it for years, and a sub out to 2016), and buy psn games for both my ps3 and vita.

got the total run around. i actually wasn't that annoyed before, and mainly called 'just to see', but now i'm actually a little pissed off. my own fault, though, shouldn't have expected them to do something about it.

oh, and if you don't have it by now, you're not getting it. was told they were all already sent out.


You seriously called? What a whiner.

I have a friend who just got a PS3 at Xmas. She received a $5 code instead of $10 and told me $5 is better than nothing. She hasn't made a single purchase yet.

Just wondering, you know how they are doing the best games of 2013 on PS Store, when they announce the winners for each category. When are the games going to be up for sale?

Yeah how dare people get even slightly upset when they don't get a free 10 dollar credit. All while the real loyal fans who just bought a PS3 last black friday get 10 dollars in credit.

Unless you have every item up for the GOTY sale that we are voting on, might as well wait till next week and use your $10 credit on that.


But the message says the $10 promo expires 3/5.

I think the code expires then. Once you've redeemed the code, I think you keep the balance in your wallet.

Why the hell didn't I get the $10? I've been a loyal fan since PS1 and a PS3 owner since 2007. I'm so confused. What's the requirements for the $10? It's definitely not loyalty that's for sure, because I feel ripped off to some level.

I don't think there are any requirements. My friend got a $5 code while I got a $10 code. I usually never get lucky on these types of promos. I guess its just the luck of the draw that your ID was picked and sent a code.

Don't think there is since Frisky didn't get one. I c'mon you would think of all people Frisky would get one too. (sorry about jinxing you frisky)

I'm glad I waited to buy another PS Plus card to extend my subscription into 2015, now I'll just wait it out. I also didn't get the free $10 which sucks as I would have used that on something like Lords of Shadow DLC or maybe towards Okami HD or FF 3 on PSP.

In regards to recent stuff, on 360 the Yugioh game seems exactly the same as it originally was. Are there any differences on the PSN version?

Well the original was just Decade Duels but this one and the xbox one has Plus at the end. Like Dwilla said, there are more dlc cards and I think more rule changes.

All I can say is that if you are not good at this card game, the beginning is really rough on you. I don't really get the rules but my first opponent summoned like 3 monsters every turn and just destroyed me.

In regards to the $10 voucher, I don't know if it had anything to do with it but I did sign up for their RSVP link that was emailed to me a couple of days ago about the press conference announcing the PS4. Maybe they sent them out to people who did that? No idea

I never signed up for that so I don't think that matters. Sucks a lot of people that deserved the codes didn't get one. People that deserve the code to me are people who buy from the PSN on a regular basis. I don't think there are any requirements to get the credit. Its just the luck of getting the message.

No. I have no idea what you are talking about and I got the $10 ;). We have 4 or 5 accounts on our system (some for my kids plus a random one my son made to play online games). Only my main PS+ account got the credit. It seems at a minimum it was PS+ members at least, right? Though if not all PS+ members got it that really sucks (especially if some non-PS+ people got it).

I just like to think of it as a rebate for buying Unfinished Swan at full price only to have that $3.75 sale for PS+ recently. It is Sony hooking me up for that ;).

No people who did not have plus and never had it got the code.

Well then I guess it was just random. For the amount of PSN titles I have bought I am glad I got one but it does suck that it was random versus based off of purchase history, being plus, or something like that. Still a nice gesture all in all regardless

I didn't ask them but I'd expect so. I mean it wouldn't really make sense for someone with no PS+ and doesn't spend money on PSN to get a "loyal customer reward".

I didn't assume. I was curious what they'd say, so I asked them directly.

Entitlement issues.


no, i don't 'expect' one. i was curious as to what they say. would i have taken $10 of digital cash? sure. but i was more curious how they'd treat an established customer that spends a lot of money and was motivated enough to call them.

You wanted to guilt them into giving you free money? You said you got pissed because they didn't give you money, so it sounds like you expected it rather than it only being about curiosity.

It's talking about the Square Enix members code.

Every Square Enix game comes with a members code, to register the game online. If you do register them online it's like Nintendo Club with rewards. The FFXIII code in particular gave you an in-game FFXIV item (faster running boots) if you registered FFXIII + linked a FFXIV account, though that offer is probably dead with 1.0 dead.
