Three console manufactures. Microsoft. Nintendo. Sony. Three ways of packaging the cards sold in GameStop that contain redemption codes for points used on the consoles' online stores. Which one do you think the planet likes best? Get a closer look:

To download games on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii, you need to use a credit card or buy a points card. All the points card has is a code. Here's how the big three package that code.

The first card is $20 in PlayStation Network points. The second is $20 in Nintendo points. The third is $50 in Microsoft points. (All purchased yesterday by me at a Brooklyn, NY Gamestop.)


Take the cards out of the plastic and this is what's left. The numbers need to be scratched off or peeled off the cards.

And this is what's left of the packaging that held the cards.
