    Just register a credit or debit card with the PSN and pay with that.

    Can you not get points in any way? How much are things to download

    It shows you how much the stuff is. You simply pay for it like you would when you buy something on the internet.

    It tells you the price when you go to the store on the PS3

    No points. Just straight forward payments.

    Range from £2.99 for old PS1 games, to £29.99 for other games (like Fifa09 etc). Many though, range from £2.99 - £6.99

    Cause you can just have a balance going, and it seems cheaper and easier to use:thumbsup:

    I know, I find the Xbox system really irritating - the PS3 one is much simpler and more transparent.

    sony are slowly going to be rolling the pre-pay cards out. They have been in the US for a while now.

    you can get points on ps3 as there is redeem option when and where you get the points is a mystery

    Playstation Card is it's name afaik

    key word being seems, always check the actual price of an item (points is a way to allude you away from the fact that it is cold hard cash.)

    The redeem section is to allow you to download beta / pre-demo's such as LBP, Home, Motorstorm 2 etc before they are available to the general public on the store. You're usually sent the redeem code in an email from Sony!:thumbsup:

    This has reminded me, anyone got SFII HD Remix?

    All the points systems suck baaad

    I love my 360, but much prefer buying downloads for my PS3. MS intentionally have a download in between card sizes.

    Always end up with 100 points left over or something - that's 360 owners' dough lying there earning MS interest! kinda lol
