Rumor: PSN cards coming to Europe, launching with PSP Go

Belgian site consoleshop.be appears to have cracked open a hidden vein of European prepaid PSN cards, and will share its bounty with everyone else on October 1.

The PSP Go — in all its download-only glory — also launches on October 1, so pairing it with PSN cards makes sense.

The cards will apparently come in two flavors, €20 and €50.

When contacted by Edge, Sony claimed that consoleshop.de’s images were actually ‘shopped versions of North American PSN cards. However, the console behemoth has yet to confirm or deny the existence of European PSN cards.

Using our speculative crystal balls, however, we’ve seen the future. There’s fire raining down from the heavens, terror-driven riots that signal the coming of a new age, and blood caked all over the boots of a new, hell-borne regime.

There are also PSN cards, for whatever it’s worth.

    What advantage does Sony have by not confirming them?

    Why can’t they just say “yep, they’re coming”. Why the silence?

    Maybe they were hoping to drop this bomb at gamescon. Well, bomb might be over the top lol but it would be an important Euro announcement along with some sort of video store. Let’s hope for Sonys sake there aren’ too many leaks watering down the conferance again.

    Yeah they’re just saving the announcement for Gamescom. One amusing thing about Sony is the rivalry between divisions. E3 is very much SCEA’s show, and Gamescom is SCEE’s. They will want to make a big deal out of it and have some headline grabbing announcements in order to get their moment in the spotlight.

    Unfortunately this one, like nearly all Sony announcements recently, has leaked.

    As a matter of policy, Sony rarely comment on speculation or rumour. However, it sounds extremely plausible that the Euro PSN cards will be launched at the same time as the PSPgo; it just makes sense.
