Sony has just announced a pre-paid network card for the Playstation, being called the Sony Playstation Ticket. These tickets will allow you to pre-pay for games on the network and also purchase other offerings from the Playstation Store. Starting in June they will be available for purchase at over 52,000 post office ATM machines throughout Japan and can be purchased in either 1000, 3000, 5000 or 10000 Yen increments.
That’s right for now this is Japan only, no word yet on if or when Sony will make these available in other areas.
