Playstation network codes were made to meet certain needs but end with more benefits. Initially, it was intended as an easy way to add online funds to the PlayStation Store account without using a credit card. It's very convenient for teenagers who don't have their own credit cards or whose parents are reluctant to enter their information online.
The idea is very popular so now you can get a Playstation network card at various retail outlets other than game stores that sell games and systems. You can also buy it through online retailers but that, of course, requires you to have a credit card or PayPal account. PSN codes are usually used to buy weapons and outfits for game characters. These are the virtual currencies used for playing games. You can now even redeem your free psn codes to avail of your desired weapons for games.
PlayStation network cards are easy to redeem, too. Of course, you must join the PlayStation network, and unlike Xbox Live membership is free of charge and joining is quick and simple. Once you log in, all you have to do it click the "redeem" button. You will then enter the 12 digit code on the card and the fund is immediately transferred to your online wallet!
Even though the card itself expires twelve months after purchase, you can keep funds in your wallet as long as you want without the danger of losing it. In the past, you had to go to a gaming shop or retail centre to buy a game or add-on. Then you had to find a place to save the disk and make sure you have a license key in a safe place. With the PlayStation network card, you can fill the shelf and drawer with other useful things!
