    playstation network debit card help!!!

    ARRGGHHH! playstation network is driving me mad tonight...
    i was all excited about to purchase the death magnetic album download for guitar hero, got to checkout and realised that i had a new debit card since my last purchase. i deleted my old debit card information and put the new one in and it keeps saying it's invalid even thought all the details are correct (checked it and re checked it) now it's blocked me from trying to enter my details again. i have money in my account and my card worked fine this morning so why wont it accept it??!!!
    any advice would be greatly appreciated! i don't really want to wait till the new codes come on sale

    if you shop online you go through a verify by visa section (with certain banks), it's an extra security question, so if someone nicks your card and tries using it online unless the know your veryfiy by visa password, they can't buy anything xxx
    sites like tesco and play.com use verify by visa

    only other suggestion is to ring them or the bank to find out why, sorry i couldn't be of more help xxx :thumbsup:

    Did you do this through the "billing information" on the PS3? sometimes have found that a bit buggy too.

    Best way is to go to uk.playstation.com sign in and change your billing info in there.. had to do it for my bro the other day too.
