Sony Europe boss Andrew House confirmed during the platform holder’s GamesCom press event today that the firm will be rolling out PlayStation Network cards in PAL territories at some point this year.
According to House, the cards will be available in both €20 and €50 denominations. A firm release date has yet to be announced, though hopefully we’ll be able to confirm something more concrete in the next couple of days.
In the meantime, be sure to check out the rest of our GamesCom coverage elsewhere on the site.

UK is part of Europe so it is, I'm excited I've always wanted this since they're first been announced

UK is in Europe the last time i checked

While the UK is in Europe, we are using £ sterling not Euros (though some shops do take them).

This couldn't have been worse timing for me - I get my first credit card in a matter of weeks! Unless, of course, the PSN cards are released on the exact same day that I get my credit card...

Well obviously it'll be before the PSP GO comes out otherwise what would people without credit cards buy games with? ;)
My bet is they come out on the same day as the GO itself :)

No this is not for the UK. UK is in Europe but has a diffferent currency.
- 6:02pm EDT - August 18th, 2009
Hmmm does this mean mean the UK will get these?, I know we are apart of Europe but we have a differant currency. Anyway It's a start I guess, so we will probably get them soon enough :)

As usual I'm left typing the same 4 characters/symbols

I think a lot of people are like me and have bought some games with a card but would rather take a $20 bill (or 20 euros for the Europeans) to get a card instead of using a credit/debit card and waiting for it to show up on the bill.
Glad the Europeans here finally get to have the cards. So much more convenient.

There's awesome good news everywhere. What's happening =/
- 7:22pm EDT - August 18th, 2009
oh thank god, i might get a psp go now with some ps1 classics
- 12:57am EDT - August 19th, 2009
it is for the European region yes? so i would guess we will be getting them in the uk too.
The fact that it is priced in Euro's means nothing as Euros are accepted in a lot of places in the UK already and Game / Gamestation / Blockbusters etc. can buy them for Euro's but sell them for pounds so not an issue apert from the fact that they will probably cost 20 pound for a 20 Euro card.......
>still glad we are getting them though :)
