    Hi guys,

    I would like to know the safest way to buy from the Playstation Store?...:smashin:

    Im alittle reluctant to put my card details on there knowing that i dont know how secure it is or where the details are actually stored?... can you buy voucher codes instead of keeping card details attatched to my username?

    Thanks, any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I believe the voucher cards, called PSN Cards, are only available outside of Europe: PlayStation Network Card - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    As for security, it's probably as (us)safe as any typical website (Amazon etc), and if you make sure you have to enter a password each time you buy from the store, then if someone physically steals your PS3 it will add a small bit of security there.

    If you're really paranoid, remove your credit card details after you've made your purchase. :smashin:
