There's been no fanfare or official announcement from Sony, but there are PlayStation Network pre-paid cards out there. For sale, to the public. And have been for months. So long as you've got a Meijer near your place , that is. If you don't, and are waiting for something a little more widespread - like GameStop, for example - you may be waiting for a while. If this email (courtesy of a GameStop employee) is legit, it looks like the nation's largest specialist gaming retailer isn't yet equipped to activate the cards. They were supposed to be, but they're not. They will be in 2009. Just in case, you know. It was keeping you up at night.
