As you might know, each PlayStation Network members are provided with an e-wallet which they can use to purchase contents within PlayStation Store. Users are able to load up the wallet using several methods including PSN prepaid cards which can now be obtained through 7-Eleven stores
throughout the country (UPDATE: see clarifications by MOL below regarding the roll out of the card.)
Prior to this, PSN prepaid cards are usually available through selected game shops and online stores. Not enough with that, PlayStation Plus membership cards are also now available through the convenience store which has a rather large footprint in Malaysia.
In terms of pricing, the PSN prepaid cards can be obtained with values of either RM 100 or RM 250. As for the PS Plus cards, the 3-month membership is priced at RM 43 while the 12-month card goes for RM 129.
Interestingly, 7-Eleven stores are not the only place that gamers able to obtain these prepaid cards as Sony Interactive Japan Asia has confirmed that they will also be made available at Giant, Tesco, and Cosway branches very soon. This should be a great news for PlayStation owners that don’t have access to credit cards or prefer not to use them.
