Well, I just got a message from [PSN] claiming that I they are giving me 10 dollars for being a loyal user. I'm not sure if this is a legit gift from Sony or some type of new phishing scheme. Anyone else get these? Is it legit? Makes sense for me to get this at midnight on the day they are going to announce some big Playstation related news. Cool marketing tactic, guys.
From the NeoGAF thread:
I've also received $10 in PSN credit for being a loyal customer. This is legitimate and it's awesome.
0_0 oh my oh my does tht means ...no PS4 and this is a preemptive strike from them???? That would be sweet :3 ... also will check in a moment ...
No, that doesn't make any sense.
I can confirm this is legit and I am from Canada! Just got the $10 dollars and put it into my wallet on the PSN store. Check out this form topic on the playstation forums, seems like lots of folks got it:
Pretty awesome of Sony actually:)
I wonder if its a threshold of money spent on the PSN store then? You generally a big spender on the store?
Maybe? I'm observing the NeoGAF thread and I'm not sure that's what it is based on some accounts, but since I got my Vita I've spent a fair amount of money on the PSN Store.
I got the message at midnight and I am reluctant to open it. I can't remember how much money I have spent but I had the the same account since 2008. I'm also at level 13 in the trophy collection. I don't know it that has anything to do with. I am not PS+ subscriber. I only used the two week trial - including the two free games - after PSN when down two years ago.
I got it. Thanks Sony! Wonder how they determine who is "loyal" though...
Have you at any point in your life made a blood sacrifice to the ghost of Ken Kutaragi?
Well, yeah... I thought everyone had to when you bought a PS3. That ceremony took a weird turn when everyone started chanting "Gaming is my religion, and Haze is the shit!".
