I'm pretty sure that their user database has no information on what any of their users do beyond purchase stuff on Sony's services. I don't really care about it anyway. I've got better things to do than worry about a $10 credit that was sent out to random people.

Why is the $10 code still up for speculation? It's:
Hey analyst get me a spreadsheet of all PSN users, assign a random number, sort, now select this number for promo codes. Done.

Sorting is unnecessary. Use random number to index the existing array, label visited, repeat.
Sorting millions of entries is very expensive.

Mathematically Correct.

Use factual statements, logical deductions, mathematical calculations and objective analysis; not rage.

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.


um. no, i didn't want to 'guilt' them. you can't guilt a billion dollar company over $10 anyway. i asked two questions -- are the emails still being sent out? No. And a followup was a very kindly worded 'How do you define loyal, then?' asked in a non-confrontational way (more of a 'what was required to get one?'). At no point did I ask for $10, because frankly, I don't need $10.

If they never worded it as being for 'loyal' customers i'd never have called in the first place. I don't care if they randomly give out $100 psn cards or free PS4s. But if that $10 credit goes to enough people that it makes all the blogs, and they label it as being for 'loyal' customers, it's silly not to expect backlash from loyal customers who didn't get it. If it was to random people, say that. "You've been selected to receive..." gets the same point across.

I wasn't even trying to create a debate about it. I called them to find out if the emails were still going out, reported back to the people here that might be still waiting, mentioned the guy was jerky, and now am being called 'entitled'. Screw that, they're the ones who offended customers, I just asked about it.

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



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.


Motivated to call? You're right, they should've given you $100!

Other than your inefficient method, I agree that we should just let it go now.

Because people want to know how Sony defines loyalty...

It could be something simple, like having an account since 2009.
It could be owning PlayStation Plus.
It could be buying a Vita.
It could be spending $500 dollars on the PSN.
It could be buying PlayStation Move Heroes and still buy games.

Who knows, but if I thought I was loyal to Sony and didn't get one, I would sure wonder why. Obviously we could all be more loyal (even people like Hakoom), but it's just good to know how they view loyalty.

so admiralvic is one of 7 people who has platted lost planet 2. and one of 4 people with 100% on spelunker hd. respect him even more


guys, you are talking to admiralvic about trophy acquisition, he is the exception.

Well one thing that isn't random and affected people with purchases was the games appearing free for PS+ users and shit.

Anyway they will get the refund plus Morgan Haro said on twitter that they will keep the games, so free SWAG.

One lesson you should retain from this, should you see free games on US to download for free while the store is updating and you have moneyz in your cart, grab the games you will be recompensated, stayin with the gamez and the moneyz.

On another note Chad Warden is back.

Just checked PSN - I got the $10 credit on my main account, and a $5 credit on the gameshare account I share with my best friend. Whoohoo!

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.

Holy crap. That is incredible. I love PS+.

Leaving are Sleeping Dogs, Vanquish, Limbo, Wipeout 2048, and Lumines Electronic Symphony. Sleeping Dogs was only up for a month, and Mass Effect 3 will likewise only be up for a month.

I'm definitely buying a year of EU plus or at least 3 months. This is also bad as the whining of US plus not getting good games is going to be even louder.

Quick question, if my ps + runs out while i'm playing a game will it stop the game or let me play it until I quit the game.

With DoA5+ coming out, seems weird they'd offer the original for free. That'd be like if SSF4 was coming out, so they decided to release the original SF4 on PS+.

Thought MGS HD & Joe Danger 2 (got the XBLA one from Raptr, so fun) is pretty cool.

Hmm...that's not too bad, but I won't be using my last EU 30 day trial on it. I mean, ME3 has already been $5 and DOA5 is a fighting game, which most people seem to hate. And keep in mind that the MGS HD Collection is almost certainly the Vita one, not the PS3 one.

I love my US PS Plus (and understand the simple reality of how international licensing agreements work), but this is the first month where the EU PS Plus stuff has made me jealous. Both Mass Effect 3 and DoA5 are excellent (and only 5 months old in the latter's case) and the MGS HD Collection is a really well executed re-release.

Hate to jump on what seems to be a monthly wagon, but this is depressing. Can we just agree to stop acknowledging EU PS+'s existence?

@the person inquiring about ME3, it was $10 at BBY with Gamer Magazine Coupon. Perhaps with reward points he got it even lower for $5.

Certainly decent enough to consider trying to setup a EU profile on a US console and grab PS+ for a year. Maybe get some nice double plat stacking too.

DOA5+ is a Vita game. The DLC for both versions are cross-buy, so if they give the original game for free, that could encourage users to buy some DLC, which coincidentally works with the new version you should buy.

Hmm...that's not too bad, but I won't be using my last EU 30 day trial on it. I mean, ME3 has already been $5 and DOA5 is a fighting game, which most people seem to hate. And keep in mind that the MGS HD Collection is almost certainly the Vita one, not the PS3 one.


Unless there was another recent EU 30-day trial, doesn't it expire on March 1st? The one that was for France.

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


Could someone please confirm this. I may redeem the code and keep my $10 for later but I don't want to lose it if it really expires on 3/5.
Frisky any idea how this expiration thing works on the PSN?

Quick question for you - if you got multiple EU 30-day trial codes, can you apply them after your current PS+ subscription ends? As I understand you can't use the 30-day codes if you are currently a subscriber, but can I theoretically use one code each month after my subscription ends?
