Gamer Customer of the Week – Jovanni

This week, we are featuring Jovanni from Jamaica! We sent him some questions to learn a bit about what he loves most about gaming, and how he’s using our PSN cards.

How old are you, and where are you located? 

I’m 24 and I am located in Jamaica.

Tell us something special or unique about where you live, or why you like it?

I am currently using a PS4 Slim for gaming purposes.

What is your gamer tag? 

I don’t even remember right now! I’m at work now, so I can’t access my PS4.

How long have you been gaming? PSN Thumbnail

Well a small secret, just since Dec 25 lol… I grew up poor so my parents were never able to get me gaming consoles, but I was able to experience using them from time to time over the years by visiting the homes of friends who had them. It wasn’t until December 2019 that I decided that I’ve been working for some time now so why not splurge and get myself a console to fulfill the dreams of my inner child.

What was your first video game? Tell us your favorite story about it. 

Need for Speed Most Wanted.. when I first had a chance to play this game back when I was a teenager, I was amazed. I saw all of my favorite cars from movies right in front of my eyes. It was awesome to be able to use them and make believe I was really a race car driver Street racing in a Lamborghini Gallardo.

What games do you currently play? 

Well currently because of MyGiftCardSupply I have been able to purchase several games from the PSN, and I kind of started playing them all at first. But I’ve calmed down now and focus mainly on completing the campaign for Just Cause 3

How much time do you currently spend gaming? 

Well at least 3-4 hours. When I work, I don’t do much gaming during the week, but on the weekends I sometimes go as long as 7 or 8 hrs.

Have you entered any gaming competitions? If so, which ones? 

Not yet. I have solely been focusing on single player offline games as I am still new to all of this, but eventually I will switch over to online so maybe in year time we can do another survey 🙂

What in your opinion makes for a good video game? 

Nice graphics, good gaming physics but ultimately, an awesome storyline.

What are your thoughts on Console gaming vs. PC gaming vs. Mobile gaming? Do you have a favorite? 

I’ve done much PC gaming and one thing I know is aiming in FPS games is sure better with a mouse, but I also love mobile gaming and console gaming. I think I’ll consider myself neutral right now.

What feature would you like to see added to the current gaming environment? 

Not sure, still pretty new to the arena so no comments as of yet.

Why do you use MyGiftCardSupply to purchase gift cards?

Well I tried using my credit card to purchase directly from the PSN but that wouldn’t work. Then I learned about gift cards and tried Amazon, but I didn’t want to wait a week to get them. That’s when I learned about MyGiftCardSupply and as Jamaicans would say… #ItsTheBestThingSinceSlicedBread

What other things interest you, besides gaming? 

Fishing and nature watching.

The 10 best games to play on your new PlayStation 4

Now that you got your PSN cards, it’s a great idea to figure out what the best games are out there to play. With that in mind, there are some extraordinary PS4 games to try out. We’ve done the hard work for you and listed them below.

The Last of Us Remastered

This game is well worth trying out because it allows you to enjoy a post-apocalyptic drama where you can explore the world and see what’s left of it. The combat is great, you’ll also have some stealth in there as well.

Judgement

Judgement is a crime solving game with lots of cinematics, so if you like puzzles or a police-inspired series, this is pretty much a no-brainer. You should totally check it out.

Until Dawn

Until Dawn is a cool and fun because it’s a choice driven horror game. You get to choose whether the main characters live or die based on your actions, which is a nice feature to the game.

Tetris EffectPSN thumbnail

Sometimes you simply want to play a fun arcade game. Tetris Effect gives you that with some amazing visuals and good quality. Everyone loves Tetris, right? You will certainly love it since it’s a great, visually appealing way to play Tetris.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

It’s easy to see why The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is on this list. This is one of the best open world RPG games of the decade. It’s huge, very well written and it sprawls of life.

Nioh

Most people love Nioh. It’s a Dark Souls-like game with the action set in Japan. The mythology is amazing, the gameplay is great, and you will certainly enjoy the experience.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

Speaking of Dark Souls, you have the successor Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice which is a very good title with the action also set in feudal Japan. It’s very challenging, true, but it has a rich story and the gameplay as well as the locations themselves are stunning.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

Finally, a Star Wars game that’s really good. This one has intense gameplay ideas, it’s very easy to play and it has lightsaber combat, open world exploration and puzzle solving.

Control

Control is a very good game that has stunning visuals, very good game mechanics and a plethora of interesting locations to explore. The physics and graphics are off the charts too, so this is incredible as well.

Death Stranding

Death Stranding is one of those games that can be hard to understand at first. But it’s that cryptic gameplay and uniqueness that really makes it one of the coolest experiences in gaming for 2019. There’s no shortage of good games on the PS4. But if you haven’t tried out Fortnite’s Chapter 2, make sure to check that out as well!

Gamer Customer of the Week – Zia

This week, we are featuring Zia from Thailand! We sent him some questions to learn a bit about what he loves most about gaming, and how he’s using our PSN cards.

How old are you, and where are you located? 

I’m 30 years old, and live in Thailand.

Tell us something special or unique about where you live, or why you like it? 

The official divorce rate for Thailand is 0.058 per 10,000 people. This is low compared to the US with 53 per 10,000 people.

What kind of system/console are you gaming on? (Generation, Tech specs, etc) 

PC, PS4 and Nintendo Switch

What is your gamer tag? 

Autismosis_Jones

How long have you been gaming? 

Since I was five.

What was your first video game? Tell us your favorite story about it. 

My first game was Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire for the Nintendo 64. My father played it with me religiously. It was a great bonding experience for us.

What games do you currently play? 

Destiny 2, Master Chief Collection, Doom, CSGO, Insurgency Sandstorm, World of Warcraft, Half-Life 2 (w/ mods), Total War: Warhammer 2, Escape From Tarkov, Left 4 Dead 2, Marvel’s Spider-Man

How much time do you currently spend gaming? 

30-50 hours a week.

Have you entered any gaming competitions? If so, which ones?

N/A

What in your opinion makes for a good video game? 

Solid story, writing, voice acting, and a gameplay loop that is accessible for everyone, but can still be appropriately challenging for experienced players when set to higher difficulties.

What are your thoughts on Console gaming vs. PC gaming vs. Mobile gaming? Do you have a favorite? 

I rank it like this: PC Gaming > Console Gaming > Mobile Gaming. But they all serve a unique purpose, and I do my best not to judge a gamer for what platform they prefer.

What feature would you like to see added to the current gaming environment? 

More support for independent developers.

Why do you use MyGiftCardSupply to purchase gift cards? 

Because I can’t use my Thai credit card to purchase PS store credit on my US PSN account. It’s a huge pain in the butt, and MyGiftCardSupply is the only website that has the common sense to understand that some Americans live overseas w/ an American PSN account.

What other things interest you, besides gaming? 

Physical fitness, reading, writing, and mentoring young men.

Gamer Customer of the Week – Stefan

This week, we are featuring Stefan from Serbia! We sent him some questions to learn a bit about what he loves most about gaming, and how he’s using our PSN cards.

How old are you, and where are you located? 

I’m 28 years old and I’m from Belgrade, Serbia.

Tell us something special or unique about where you live, or why you like it? 

In Belgrade (Serbia) we have amazing food, great parties and beautiful weather – the city is always alive. But what stands out the most are definitely the people and our hospitality – we are always up for having some fun, and you cannot say no to some good Rakija 😀 I personally live next to a huge forest, and I love having fresh air while being just 20mins from the city center. A fun fact regarding Belgrade as a capital – Serbia has officially ‘owned’ it the least cumulative time in it’s history, which tells a lot about how many nations and countries occupied us during our history which goes back to the 11th century. But we always prevail. The most unique thing though is probably Yugoslavia, and I really recommend you Google it – an incredible history lesson. There’s also this thing about our language – it is the only one in the world where you write the words as you say them (and vice-versa), so there’s basically no spelling as such. But the grammar is really hard 😀

What kind of system/console are you gaming on? (Generation, Tech specs, etc) 

PS4 99% of the time, but I do play Red Alert 2 (Mental Omega 3 mod) on my laptop. (And in case you’re into Xbox, they’re coming out with two new consoles next year.)

What is your gamer tag? 

watchwolf_501st

How long have you been gaming? 

Since I can remember 😀 I started with Sega Mega Drive 2 when I was 5 years old, which was in 1996.

What was your first video game? Tell us your favorite story about it. 

It was Sonic on Sega. I remember I had three cartridges at the time, Sonic, Aladdin and I think NBA Live 95, but I played Sonic the most by far. It took me a couple of months to get to the final level and the showdown with Doctor Robotnik. If I remember correctly, the level was basically a bridge which Robotnik was gradually destroying, and since the screen was locked from moving left to right, you had to defeat him before he destroys the bridge completely. I played that level for a couple of days on and off, got close to winning a couple of times, but alas was failing over and over. I got so frustrated that I started yelling loudly every time I would die, which my mom heard and would come to the room to see what was happening. I explained my problem, she grabbed the joystick and defeated Robotnik in her second or third try. I was baffled honestly, but I love it – my mom not even knowing what exactly she did, in such an iconic game.

What games do you currently play? PSN Thumbnail

Right now I mostly play Rocket League, Fallout 4, Outer Worlds, Ace Combat 7 and Onrush. Oh, and Absolute Drift – that game is just phenomenal.

How much time do you currently spend gaming?

On average an hour or two a day, but I try to manage a half or full day gaming sessions at least once a month.

Have you entered any gaming competitions? If so, which ones? 

Not really. I did play American football professionally for 5 years, so I never did have a drive to compete in video games with anyone besides my friends – I use them to relax and explore the worlds as well as myself.

What in your opinion makes for a good video game?

I would say primarily a good narrative. It really depends on the game, but it all comes down to the story the game is trying to convey. It’s like when you visit different cities, and some of them have a soul and a ‘real’ story, while others seem artificial regardless of how impressive they are or how tall they make the buildings. The cities that you feel most comfortable in are those which have something concrete to say, they have a story, and they expand and grow based on the needs and wants of the humans living in them, not because a city government decided to build a huge skyscraper primarily because it will make money. It’s the same with video games. In the case of games which do not need to rely on the narrative per se (such as Rocket League or CoD multiplayer) it comes down to how the mechanics and the whole player UX is implemented, and what drives me to play the game – the incentives, the intrinsic (or extrinsic) value I get from playing and progressing, and so on.

What are your thoughts on Console gaming vs. PC gaming vs. Mobile gaming? Do you have a favorite? 

Console gaming is my favorite for two reasons – affordability, meaning I can buy a console and play it without upgrades for years) and ease of use, meaning I do not have to ‘reinstall’ my console like I do my PC every year or a couple of months because reasons. When it comes to PS ecosystem specifically, I see Sony as a good guy in general, both in the terms of service and pricing, and it just suits me perfectly. That said, PC is a master race when it comes to performance in general, and that will stay the case until we move on to purely streaming games or something similar. When it comes to mobile it’s just not an experience I’m looking for. I would say it lacks the immersiveness I strive for when I play games – a small screen just doesn’t do it for me, and I do not like to play games to pass the time but to enjoy them like a good book (in the case of Outer Worlds for example) or to completely focus on the play (in the case of Rocket League), which I just cannot do on mobile on the move. And if I’m home, I have my PS4, so  I rarely play games on mobile.

What feature would you like to see added to the current gaming environment? 

NFTs for sure. My kick-ass gun can become my kick-ass car in a different game – how awesome is that? 😀 But we still have some ways to go until we get there. It would be awesome for me primarily because the reward of playing any game would be that much greater, apart from me playing it because I like it for whatever reason, regardless of the rewards and incentives.

Why do you use MyGiftCardSupply to purchase gift cards? 

I used to go to G2A for my gift cards, but we all know how that platform ended up. A friend of mine told me about you guys, and once I tried it that was it – the fees are acceptable, the service is perfect, and most importantly – I trust you guys 🙂

What other things interest you, besides gaming? 

I’m a business developer, so I like systems analysis of any kind – even if it is not tied to my work directly. I’m currently with the blockchain development studio (mvpworkshop.co), so I would definitely add blockchain as well. Besides that, I play a lot of sports (from beach volleyball to skiing), I’m making my own board game with some friends, and I love sci-fi in general – the 20 year remaster of Star Wars When we had a census in Serbia in 2011, I registered my official religion as ‘Jedi’, and I have a Jedi insignia tattooed on the back of my shoulder, so that says a lot about me 😀

Apple TV and iOS will soon support Xbox One and PS4 controllers

Apple TV and iOS will be bringing in support for PS4’s Dual Shock console controllers, as well as Xbox One S controllers. This will only include the original controllers for now, not any third party ones. So make sure to get your Xbox One and PSN cards now so you can play all your favorite games with these great controllers on Apple devices.

Will there be any exclusive games?

For now, no one is saying anything about ports or console games coming to Apple. But having the console support along with the Remote Play app, which was released in March, your iPhone and iPad is essentially a portable PS4. You’ll find that the app allows you to have all of the same PS4-related controls. Unfortunately, some games aren’t compatible with the app, so make sure to keep that in mine. However, this PS5 Thumbnailcontroller support could also increase the use of other gaming apps, such as the recently released Steam Link app for iOS. So as long as your PC and mobile device are connected to the same Wi-Fi network, you can stream your steam games to an iPhone or iPad. And we also have Steam cards available to make all of your Steam purchases as efficiently as possible.

You will have controller support very soon

The new updates are set to arrive with the iOS 13 version, and the new tvOS that will be released around the end of the summer. It’s also been rumored that Apple will also be releasing Apple Arcade, a curated subscription service that will work on iOS, iPadOS, and tvOS. Apparently, there will be around 100 new and exclusive games that will be available on the platform. So it does makes sense for Apple to add controller support, as they don’t currently have their own controller. And adding a third party controller on their OS would pretty much be a bust for most people. But with the support of Xbox One and PS4 controllers on Apple devices, the possibilities could really open up for gamers in many ways.

PS4’s PlayStation VR

PlayStation VR offers you one of the best ways to experience virtual reality on your home console. This is the only virtual reality experience that was created specifically for consoles. Other platforms are supported on consoles, but this one can’t be beat because it was made specifically for them. It works great, and you can use PSN gift cards to acquire games for it.

Great performance and support

The performance of the PS4 Pro is a great fit for the PlayStation VR because you get all the features you desire with a virtual reality experience. One of the things that makes the platform so great is that it has plenty of games that are either in full VR or have VR support.

Lots of games to playPlayStation VR Thumbnail

For example, with PSN cards you can prepare yourself for upcoming games like Iron Man VR. This game really seems to capture the experience of the Iron Man gameplay. Also expect Blood and Truth to be coming out, a game created to mimic the action of John Wick. And if you enjoy horror games, Five Nights with Freddy VR is one of the games that really manages to offer plenty of scares that you won’t want to miss.  Concrete Genie and No Man’s Sky are also actively trying to bring in lots of focus on exploration. NMS in particular is sure to be a blast, and having it in full VR will certainly add to the game’s appeal. There is even talk of Apex Legends coming out with a VR version of the game. There can be some things to figure out when getting into these games. But having them in VR is something that definitely shouldn’t be passed up.

VR games are coming in droves

VR is a big push for Sony because they don’t have many PS4 games. Plus, they also removed themselves from E3 this year. This really goes to show that PS4 will be more focused on VR games. That’s great because you get to have more control over how everything plays out with the entire process.  It’ll certainly be interesting to see where PlayStation VR will go in the next year or so. We expect a new console to arrive soon, but until then this set of VR experiences is set to bring in lots of great experiences!
