For the third week of July, we are featuring Eric Castro from Mexico! We sent over some questions to and wanted to know a bit about what he loves most about PlayStation gaming,
How old are you, and where are you located?I am 28 years old based in Mexico.
What is your PlayStation Gamer tag?YoshDF
What was your first video game? Tell us your favorite story about it.It was not mine as I did not own the console or game but my first game was Super Mario Bros. on the NES, I remember eagerly waiting to visit my cousin each weekend we used to play for hours at his house there was even a time when a party was being held on his birthday in which I did not take place as I just kept playing Mario
What games are you currently playing?God of War, Ratchet and Clank, Uncharted “The lost legacy”, DB Fighterz
How much time do you currently spend gaming?Nowadays I don’t spend too much time as I have a beautiful toddler girl which takes away most of my free time, but I try to at least jump in a couple of hours a week especially on the weekends
How long have you been gaming?Since I was about 6 years, I have own many consoles since then like NES, SNES, Sega Genesis, Gameboy, Sega Saturn, Nintendo 64, PS1, PS2, PS3, Xbox, xbox360 but I have always been fond of PlayStation. I used to do a lot of gaming even my mom had to hide the controllers and cartridges from me and my brother she would only give them when all of our duties were done (now we laugh on how she thought she was hiding them but we knew where they were the whole time.
Have you entered any gaming competitions?Just local competitions in my city for fighting games I used to hit the arcades much when I was 16 and became quite good at games like KoF and Marvel vs Capcom
What in your opinion makes for a good video game?For me a good story or new gameplay. We know that graphics is not all there is to a video game but when you combine new gameplay, awesome music and nice story that keeps you interested through the whole game those are the aspects that make a game memorable
What are your thoughts on console Gaming vs. PC gaming vs. Mobile gaming? Do you have a favorite?I have always been a console gamer (which is obviously my favorite). I have not seen a nice mobile game that has kept my attention I guess they are all just to entertain yourself for a short time. I do not do mobile as I hate how the industry took mobile gaming to be based on microtransactions.
What feature would you like to see added to the PlayStation or PlayStation Network?When I was into shooters I always thought of the idea of playing the same game but with a friend in a different console would have been so cool (still hoping to see this)
Why do you used MyGiftCardSupply to purchase your PSN gift cards?s I said I live in Mexico and when I created my PSN account we did not even have a store (so sad!) that why I had to create a US based account which I don’t regret at all since the Mexican store lacks the content and availability of games the US provides (this has improved slightly in the last couple of years but still light years behind) then I heard about MygiftCardSupply and gave them a try, and I don’t regret, you guys rocks!!
What other things interest you, besides gaming?I am a geek so like all geeks I like movies like Starwars, Marvel, LOTR and so on, I also like reading and going out of town knowing new places. Did I mention I play flag football?

For the last weekend in June, we are featuring Nathan Ivey from Canada! We sent over some questions to and wanted to know a bit about what he loves most about PlayStation gaming,
How old are you, and where are you located?I am usually told I look like 23 on average but I am also told I do not look it but I am 30 years old, I am located in central Canada
What is your PlayStation Gamer tag?My PlayStation Gamertag is NateDogg2487
What was your first video game? Tell us your favorite story about it.The very first video game I remember playing was super Mario brothers on the Nintendo, Like most people, I would spend hours playing that game and I would wake up late after my parents went to bed to play it while having the volume on low.
What games are you currently playing?I play a lot of different games for many reasons, One of them is that I am a trophy hunter and the second is that I play a lot of different games because I usually stream it and not everyone will like one game if you know what I mean. I am open to trying new games but some of my favourite games to play are Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, Call of Duty games, Resident Evil games (big fan of them), Dead By Daylight, Final Fantasy 7 (or any of them), Any of the walking dead games, need for speed and Gran Turismo.
How much time do you currently spend gaming?I usually game for 3 hours on average most days and I have probably been gaming since I was 8 years old. It keeps me out of trouble so I use it as an outlet. I haven’t been in any gaming competitions but wouldn’t mind being in one if there was a competition that interested me. I like playing video games mostly for the campaigns and not just the online stuff. But I love it when a game has a twist/twists in the storyline that you do not see coming so If a game is making me guess what will happen all the time then chances are I will not get bored of it anytime soon.
What are your thoughts on console Gaming vs. PC gaming vs. Mobile gaming? Do you have a favorite?I don’t have a favorite when it comes to PC, mobile or console gaming, I play games on all 3 but mainly my PS3 & PS4. I wish they would make it so everyone can game with each other across different platforms. I think Microsoft does it with Xbox and pc but not sure. I do know they wanted to do a cross-platform with sony but not sure if Sony is interested. I think more money could be made that way.
Why do you used MyGiftCardSupply to purchase your PSN gift cards?I use the Mygiftcardsupply site to buy Hulu gift cards for myself but the main reason why is that I use to buy games or PS Plus memberships for my friend in the states. She has a newborn baby and doesn’t really have any extra money to buy PS4 stuff. So I buy them for her so she and I can game..she has been friends with me for 5 years now and we are very close. I was pretty happy when I first found the site because I spend the whole day walking around the city trying to find a place that would sell a US gift card (s) in Canada but none do.
What other things interest you, besides gaming?I am pretty laid back and like to chill a lot. Love to play pool, I love relaxing while listening to music. Love to exercise by swimming, going to the gym, riding my mountain bike. One of my favorite past times besides gaming to put puzzles together because my grandmother would do that with me when I was a kid. She and I are extremely close because she pretty much raised me.
