Just got off live chat with them, didn't seem too helpful I guess. Interesting read.

Lissette M. (9/8/2018, 2:49:45 PM): Hello, My name is Lissette M. how may I assist you today?

Me (9/8/2018, 2:50:06 PM): Having troubles with adding funds to my account or even buying things directly

Me (9/8/2018, 2:50:24 PM): I've tried credit card, and paypal

Me (9/8/2018, 2:50:39 PM): I know psn is having issues I just dont know if it's related to this

Me (9/8/2018, 2:51:29 PM): Haven't tried it on my console, as I am out of town, but I wanted to buy some things online via my phone and I still cannot purchase things with my credit card or bank account or paypal

Me (9/8/2018, 2:51:54 PM): It reads "we've encountered an error processing your payment, please try again later"

Lissette M. (9/8/2018, 2:52:30 PM): Hello Connor! I am really sorry to know you are having issues adding funds on the PSN. Rest assured we are going to find a solution.

Lissette M. (9/8/2018, 2:52:34 PM): Note we will be working with the information you submitted in the Pre-Chat form; can I please have the following information: -First and last name -Phone number

Me (9/8/2018, 2:52:51 PM): Connor
Me (9/8/2018, 2:52:56 PM): ----------

Lissette M. (9/8/2018, 2:54:06 PM): Thank you very much for the information!

Lissette M. (9/8/2018, 2:54:10 PM): Just a friendly reminder: Please refresh the chat by sending a message every 2:30 minutes in order to avoid that the system disconnects our interaction.

Me (9/8/2018, 2:54:32 PM): Ok

Me (9/8/2018, 2:56:17 PM): Refreshing

Lissette M. (9/8/2018, 2:56:26 PM): Thank you for waiting Connor. Let me tell you that after verifying your account events, the system shows that there are some failed attempts to add funds. These can happen when for some reason, such as miscommunication between the bank and PlayStation Network, the payment instrument is not accepted and gets rejected. As result, the system locks the account for a certain period of time; this is strictly, for security reasons.

Me (9/8/2018, 2:57:10 PM): Does it look like my accounts locked out? It hasn't said anything about being locked out

Lissette M. (9/8/2018, 2:59:34 PM): Let me tell you that this is an internal lockout only to use Credit card or PayPal.

Lissette M. (9/8/2018, 2:59:45 PM): No worries, In this case I will be sending you an email with suggestions that should help you resolve the issue once the block has been lifted. Again, please do not attempt to change your card or make purchases until the lockout period has ended.

Me (9/8/2018, 3:00:20 PM): I've already added and removed the same card twice now, I hope that doesn't screw things up.

Me (9/8/2018, 3:00:36 PM): How long does the block last?

Me (9/8/2018, 3:00:51 PM): And how can I know when my accounts been blocked?

Lissette M. (9/8/2018, 3:01:34 PM): Let me tell you that the lockout period takes 24 hours from now. after the 24 hours you can try to purchase on the PS Store and rest assured you are going to be able to use it.

Lissette M. (9/8/2018, 3:01:39 PM): In the meantime, let me provide you an option that does always work for these scenarios, and personally is my favorite one. You can add funds by purchasing a digital PSN card code. These can be purchased online and you get the code right away after completing the purchase online, and there are no extra fees: Lissette M. (9/8/2018, 3:01:43 PM): Also for GameStop:,28zu0 Lissette M. (9/8/2018, 3:02:01 PM): With the PSN cards you can make the purchases now, instead of waiting until tomorrow.

Me (9/8/2018, 3:02:16 PM): I bought 2 psn cards already

Me (9/8/2018, 3:02:33 PM): And they do not work on

Me (9/8/2018, 3:02:51 PM): It gets stuck after asking my for my zip code when I fill out the numbers

Me (9/8/2018, 3:03:06 PM): The next button doesn't continue Me (9/8/2018, 3:03:41 PM): But I did have success with the psn cards only on they went through on that website just about 10 mins ago

Lissette M. (9/8/2018, 3:04:27 PM): That is correct, this is because you need to redeem the codes on the Sony web site first, since you need to add the funds there. Then you can use the funds on the PS Store.

Me (9/8/2018, 3:04:35 PM): I have been trying to buy things with my credit card for about 2 days now

Me (9/8/2018, 3:05:02 PM): You can still redeem codes on the ps store though

Me (9/8/2018, 3:06:00 PM): Or at least you normally should be able too.

Lissette M. (9/8/2018, 3:07:30 PM): We appreciate the feedback Connor, I am really sorry for the inconvenience, in this case I would kindly recommend you to do not attempt to make purchases with the card until the lockout period finish.

Me (9/8/2018, 3:07:44 PM): Okay, thank you for the help

Lissette M. (9/8/2018, 3:09:02 PM): You are very welcome Connor, rest assured you will be able to use the card tomorrow without any problem. May I know if besides that, is there something else that I could help you with?

Me (9/8/2018, 3:09:32 PM): No that should do it

u/Thewonderboy94 · 1 pointr/playstation

The PS2 controller should work, but you need a PS1 memorycard. I think it was possible to use a PS2 memorycard if you first started playing on the PS1 card, then copied the save to the PS2 card, but you still always needed one card each, so its not going to help you out.

Also, the PS1 game support is nearly 100%, with maybe a handful of games having some slight issues, and only a few games not working on specific models of PS2 Slim. I remember reading that Tomba/Tombi 1 and Mortal Kombat Trilogy had game breaking issues with some Slim models, and possibly MGS too, but there are not many incompatible games out there. You can find some partial info from Wikipedia, but apparently it doesn't apply on every model (unless they have updated the page with clarifications).

Also, as an extra note, if you are using Component cables with your console, or want to get a better picture quality out of it, PS1 games almost always output at 240p instead of 480i (288p and 576i in Europe) that PS2 games use, and a lot of TVs can't recognize or understand a 240p signal over their Component and HDMI connections. So in this case, using a PS2 with Component cables or a PS2 to HDMI adapter to play PS1 games is most likely going to give you a black screen with sound. Some TVs can also display 240p over Component, but incorrectly recognize it as 480i signal, doing unnecessary deinterlacing and ruining the picture.

Though, quite a few modern TVs still can show 240p flawlessly. The support is just widely inconsistent.

So consider that when you play PS1 games on PS2. If you are in Europe/PAL zone, you might have much more luck with some good RGB SCART cables. If you are in the US/place where SCART is not a common standard, there have lately been a surge of "PS1/PS2 AV to HDMI" conversion devices, which use the console's RGB output (all PS1s and 2s regardless of their region are capable of using RGB SCART as a output) to quickly convert the analog signal to digital HDMI signal. Apparently, they give you a pretty good picture quality, and they are way more compatible than those PS2 to HDMI adapters, which use the Component output signal. AV to HDMI has a cable and a conversion box combined to one device that does the minimum required 720p and 1080p upscaling, while PS2 to HDMI looks more like a fat USB stick and it will only convert the signal from analog to digital, so don't confuse the two.

Just an FYI, if you want to get a better video output from your old consoles. The standard composite cables are pretty shitty, so you would be getting a lot more out with better cables. Those AV to HDMI converter things (which are specifically made for PlayStation) go for around $30, I think.

Edit. Here's the RGB converter

u/Tacanacy · 2 pointsr/playstation

I strongly recommend Philips SHP9500 with a V-MODA BoomPro over HyperX Cloud (II), and in general. SHP9500 has a larger soundstage, better imaging and detail retrieval, and much better clarity and bass and treble quality. It has a neutral/balanced sound profile, meaning it has no increased or decreased bass and treble. Soundstage and imaging are shortly told the stereo equivalent of virtual surround sound and they constitute positional audio. The headphone sits around the ears and has an open design, so it allows sound to freely pass through. The benefit to this is generally a larger soundstage and better imaging than what you get with closed headphones. It has a durable and lightweight build. And no flimsy or squeaky parts.

This is like a traditional headset except that the headphone and mic are sold separately. The mic connects to the headphone’s jack, replacing the original headphone cable. The mic has a mute switch and volume control.

SHP9500 goes often on sale on for around $50.

u/_Kryptik_ · 1 pointr/playstation

The Gold is wireless-only (if you want to take advantage of all features). The wired option is using a 3.5mm patch cord to the controller, and would mean no VSS and a noted reduction in sound quality.

The wired equivalent from Sony is the Playstation Silver. Virtually the same specs as Gold, but with a flip-down boom mic (no noise cancellation). I own the Silver, and have commented on it in other threads. If you specifically want wired, they are a great option that support VSS through a single USB connection (third-party require USB for chat audio plus a toslink connection for game audio).

The Silver is available for just under $35 on Amazon; throw in a $1 item and get free shipping on your order.

u/kezzic · 1 pointr/playstation

That's actually 110% fine, and you've actually given me an affordable solution to my problem, seeing as my primary problem is the inability to adjust chat and game volume via remote. It is hard to hear my friends voices in some games, and so I have been adjusting the in-game volume down, which is kind of a nuisance. I may lose the functionality of microphone-muting because the headset itself doesn't have a built-in switch, but that is a-ok.

The $100 MixAmp also does not have a built-in microphone mute switch, so I'd rather get the SilverAmp because of cost. Also, the PS4 amps/sound cards have that system application to adjust sound profiles, which is a neat addition that I would be able to utilize by using the 1st party remote.

I don't really know who to be frustrated with. Either Sony's lack of support for the HyperX sound card, or with the HyperX Cloud II itself. The quality of the damned headset blows my mind; I use it at school, work, and at home. It was advertised to work with PS4, but in reality, HyperX's solution is to avoid the card entirely and plug into the controller. I don't know if Sony could possibly patch 3rd party support in the future?

Thank you for doing so much legwork in the testing, I really appreciate it, and I will most likely be purchasing the Silver set/amp. I expect that the SilverAmp should work, but when I do end up purchasing the set (probably next paycheck), I will update this thread with full explanation up top for Googlers.



the SilverAmp that comes with the PS Silver Headset provides game and chat volume control (link); the MixAmp (link) does the exact same thing for more $$$. Neither have microphone mute switches.

u/HorraceMcDiel · 1 pointr/playstation

Basically it sends data over your power lines. So in most homes you can plug one adapter close to your router and another close to your pstv. It's not quite as good as a direct cat connection but pretty good. I found this on amazon. I haven't personally used it but it has great reviews.

u/Spaghettiism · 2 pointsr/playstation

I personally recommend the HyperX Cloud Gaming Headset. I bought mine about a month ago for $84. The sound quality is amazing, and the mic quality is also very good. I only wish I would have waited a couple of more weeks because they just released a new version of them that have 7.1 surround sound connectivity for PC & Mac and stereo compatible with PS4. The new version costs about $100

Hope this helps

u/ibzrg1570 · 2 pointsr/playstation

Because the going price for "good" headphones is way above $100. It may be a lot for you personally, and you wouldn't be wrong to believe that is a fair price for high quality, but the reality of it is that $100 is considered entry level by enthusiasts. When you consider that a headset is more complex than a headphone due to the addition of a microphone, mute switch, lighter weight for ergonomics, plus 7.1 surround sound marketing bullshit, etc., your $100 headset is probably closer to the equivalent of a $50 headphone, and I have never seen a headphone that retails at that price that I would call durable. As such, Sony and others can get away with turning you into a repeat buyer of their disposable headsets. You're really going to be better off getting good headphones and adding a mic.

The only headset that I've seen recommended by enthusiasts on /r/headphones is the Kingston HyperX Cloud series, mostly because it's just the Takstar Pro 80 with a microphone attached. I have never used either the HyperX Cloud or the Takstar, so I cannot vouch for its durability. Another cheap alternative is to buy a decent headphone that has a detachable cable that connects via 3.5mm TRS jack and get a $30 [V-Moda BoomPro] ( mic. I use the BoomPro with a pair of [Philips SHP9500] ( headphones, another entry level headphone that occasionally goes on sale for $50-60 on NewEgg, I believe normal price is around $80-90. It doesn't fold for travel, so it never leaves my desk area, but it feels durable enough for the price; I don't see it falling apart under light use anytime soon. It's very light and has a \balanced sound that's great for music too, but it is open back, so sound will leak both ways - you'll hear everything around you and everyone around you will hear your headphones. Either the HyperX Cloud or SHP9500/BoomPro will set you back about $90.

u/Mizeneu · 1 pointr/playstation

I haven't tried that, and I mean sure you CAN play any game, but some are better than others becsuse of control scheme. Get one of these

[L2 / R2, L3 / R3 buttons mounted] Remote Play assist attachment for PlayStationVita (PCH-2000)

If you get a slim model, which personally I got because the oled on the original can get burns on the screen.

u/sypher215 · 2 pointsr/playstation

Perfect headset at an affordable price, the Turtle Beach PX21. This headset offers 4 corners enchanced audio, with a boom stick mic I love since it is super flexible. It operates on the PS3, Xbox, and PC.

u/yohan12 · 22 pointsr/playstation

The PlayStation wireless gold headset is the best headset I've owned for the exact situation you're in. They are wireless with pretty good battery life, plug and play on all three systems, and even though you have extra money, they are cheap.

u/IamTheMaker · 1 pointr/playstation

its these ones but i paid less for them here in sweden.
and in 6 months there hasnt been a problem at all i highly recommend them most likely the best headset ive owned for either x360 pc or anyother

u/monokrome · 2 pointsr/playstation

I have seen this and think that it's an issue with the payment method. The way that I got around it was buying a PlayStation Gift Card Digital Code from Amazon, which then let me put the money into my wallet.

Not sure why the PlayStation Store is doing so poorly at this, but it definitely seems like this gets around the issue for the time being!

Something like this:

u/Seiksae · 1 pointr/playstation

I bought a small Bluetooth dongle and paired my DS3 and DS4 to it so I could play PC games with my controllers wirelessly. The DS4 Wireless Adaptor (link below) appears to do the same thing but without you needing to reformat the firmware and drivers of the dongle like I had to do. If you want to play PC games with your DS4 wirelessly then go for it.
Of note, you can still play with a USB cable connecting the PC and DS4 if that works for your purposes.

Note: I use PC to represent personal computer, regardless of the OS you choose to use.

u/lawraTeikoku · 1 pointr/playstation

I assume you have a US acct. if that's the case, they only accept American issued credit/debit cards and American Paypal accounts. If you don't have either one, you can't sign up for the trial. I recommend to buy the vouchers on Amazon. I strongly encourage you to never link your cc or paypal to your PS acct.

u/IfritGh0st · 2 pointsr/playstation

First recommendation is the Plantronics RIG 500HC 3.5mm Stereo Gaming Headset (US Amazon Link). I used them for a while. Great audio and mic quality and I loved how light they were. Solid headset for the price.

Other than those, I'd say HyperX Cloud Gaming Headset - Black (KHX-H3CL/WR) (also US Amazon Link). These were awesome because of their memory foam padding and jus the overall level of comfort they offered.

Keep in mind neither of these offer true surround sound and are both wired to your controller. If you have any questions about either, let me know! I no longer own either but used them both for a fre months each before I handed them down to my cousin. I currently use Astro A50s.

u/mimic751 · 1 pointr/playstation

[L2 / R2, L3 / R3 buttons mounted] Remote Play assist attachment for PlayStationVita (PCH-2000)

This one ads all the buttons to it like a controller so you can actually play it and not use that stupid touch screen in the back

u/Jrrolomon · 3 pointsr/playstation

I searched and this is the closest I could find. They are marketed for Vita, but many people on the list in said they use it daily with PS4.

Looks like they got pretty decent reviews, too.

PlayStation Vita In-ear Headset

u/Heratiki · 8 pointsr/playstation

I've had this issue over and over again. So if it happens again go on Amazon and you can buy PSN Codes. You can buy multiples and the code is sent immediately. Make sure it's only sold by Amazon Digital Services.


u/MandeIa · 2 pointsr/playstation

This is the one I bought when I bought my ps4 a year ago. Easy installation and hasn't given me a problem. I have about 40 games (psn and full retail) and I still have about 100gbs free.

Seagate 1TB Laptop Gaming SSHD (Solid State Hybrid Drive) SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache 2.5-Inch Internal Bare Drive (ST1000LM014)

u/IceCoolTea · 1 pointr/playstation

I don't know how to fix that problem. But there is another way. You can simply buy PSN 50$ (or more) on amazon. Then enter code.

Code si digital so you will have it almost instantly.
I hope helped. Good luck

u/lettuc3 · 1 pointr/playstation

Had issues with both a debit and credit card as well as adding a paypal account. Ended up buying PSN credits on amazon and applying those to the account to make purchases.

u/shagstafah · 1 pointr/playstation

Well I have the PS gold headset and like it quite a bit. However if you want wired they did release a silver edition that is wired.
In your price range as well

u/nizzy2k11 · 2 pointsr/playstation

PS gold or HyperX Cloud was $60 this weekend. i would get the cloud, much more versatile if its wired but i don't mind the wires since i keep my original PS headset plugged almost 24/7.

EDIT: the wired will also get rid of any wireless interference your current headset has and future headset might have as well.

u/ps_vita · 3 pointsr/playstation

Connecting it to your TV, and it's cheaper to buy than a Vita:

  • Vita TV - $80 delivered
  • Vita TV / DS3 bundle - $100 delivered
  • Vita Borderlands 2 bundle - $200 delivered

    Sure there are used Vitas out there that can be had for less, but it's still generally cheaper to buy a new Vita TV. and if all one wants to do is play P4G, it's not a bad way to go.
u/SHANE523 · 2 pointsr/playstation

Don't bother with the SSD, just get a hybrid, I put this in mine and just put it in a friends Slim. I couldn't tell you if it made a difference for the Pro only because I put it in immediately. My friends swears there is improvement in navigating while in game and loading games but it is his opinion.


u/cheech790 · 2 pointsr/playstation

It was released yesterday in the EU, it is going to be [released in a few days in the US]( USB-Wireless-Adaptor/dp/B01KWLKKQU/). I've got one, but so far it's pretty useless because there aren't any games who support the adaptor yet.

u/helpimaGOAT · 2 pointsr/playstation

That happened to my boyfriend, too. In the end, no one could help. I've seen it happen to other people on here, too.

What he ended up doing was going on Amazon - you can buy codes on there to add PSN money that will get sent straight to your email when you order them. Here's the link:

You can choose the amount.

And sorry about the format, I'm on mobile!

If you don't do Amazon, basically you have to go to a store and buy a PSN card. Even customer support hasn't been able to help the random people that that error effects.

u/revilolee · 1 pointr/playstation

I've been using these PS Vita earbuds on my PS4 for the longest. Definitely recommend!

u/Conjo_ · 3 pointsr/playstation

Ah, I thought you had a PS3 or 4.

This is the PSTV. Basically a vita with less hardware and made to be connected to the TV. I'm sure it's possible to find it cheaper. it doesn't include a memory card (which are super expensive, btw) or controller, only the cables. It has 1GB of internal memory though so if you buy the game physically that will be enough. And controller, well, any PS3 or PS4 controller should work (at least, the official ones).

Lately I think it's worth mentioning what the other comment says: Not all vita games work on it, but certaing games do. The list of games that work can be expanded by hacking it though

u/axxionkamen · 1 pointr/playstation

Try and get a powerline adapter. It’s gonna be a whole lot better than WiFi. It’ll be (almost) like hard working to router.

TP-Link AV600 Powerline Ethernet Adapter - Plug&Play, Power Saving, Nano Powerline Adapter(TL-PA4010 KIT)

u/meatwaddancin · 1 pointr/playstation

He is joking, don't buy a SSD for the PS4. Consider a hybrid drive if you do want a loading time boost.

u/ElBolovo · 1 pointr/playstation

I'm not from America and buy digital PSN cards in this link.

The first time around it will take you some a couple hours until they give you the code, but after that, it will take less than five minutes. Just e-mail him the code and he is good to go.

u/17531 · 1 pointr/playstation

Thank you very much for the info.

So would this setup work? - Sennheiser HD558 + V-MODA BoomPro and then adding a Astro Gaming MixAmp in the future if I want to.

u/IssaIssue · 3 pointsr/playstation

Upgrading internal storage is not that hard, and in my opinion, 100% worth it. For a while, every time I got a new game I had to delete another, which really sucked. I bought a 2tb hard drive from amazon and it’s amazing. Here’s the link to the one I got

u/TnStriker · 1 pointr/playstation

You can buy it now

Sony Computer Entertainment DUALSHOCK 4 USB Wireless Adaptor - PlayStation 4

u/Drum_Stick_Ninja · 1 pointr/playstation

Definitely PlayStation Gold Wireless headset.

  • $70.00
  • Compat with PS3/PS4/PC & Xbone (xbox via an adapter) or any device with a 3.5mm audio jack.
  • Wireless
  • 7.1 virtual surround sound
u/Volkendo · 1 pointr/playstation

Sounds 100% like what I had to deal with. If you've only tried twice and no more, then I would call support and see if they can fix it before your account is locked out. If you've tried 3 times or more with the same error, then you're already locked and you have to wait for 24 hours before you can try again.

You can bypass the wait period by buying a prepaid gift card and adding that to your account and then buying your skin using the funds from it (at least that worked for me), but if you want to charge your card directly through PSN, you'll have to wait.

u/LSDrush · 1 pointr/playstation

Got this for like $70

Just take it out of the enclosure, put it in your PS4, pop the old one into the enclosure

And there you go 2tb PS4

u/meatwad75892 · 1 pointr/playstation

If your TV has composite inputs (the red/white/yellow RCA plugs), you can get those cheap on Amazon.

Even new model TVs these days typically have at least one set of composite and/or component inputs; If not the actual RCA plugs on the TV itself, they usually connect via a breakout adapter that they include with the TV.

If you have none of the above and HDMI is your only option, you can get a powered HDMI adapter for the PS2's AV output instead.

u/ProjektRED · 1 pointr/playstation

I just bought one following the link to amazon from a previous post. here

u/sushiondeck · 3 pointsr/playstation

This is the one I used.

You can also go with this one if you want something a bit cheaper, it's about $20 cheaper.

u/Palodin · 1 pointr/playstation

Yeah the PS4 has always been a bit shit on wi-fi for me too, I don't know if Sony cheaped out on the network hardware or what. I'm not even that far from the router, next room over through a thin wall, other devices have no issues.

Your best bet is probably some sort of powerline solution, for example - - relatively cheap and should work as long as your PS4 and router are on the same circuit. If you've got decent wiring you can expect reasonable speeds (50Mbit wouldn't be too much of an ask)

u/nation15 · 1 pointr/playstation

Turtle Beach PX21 for stereo sound, Turtle Beach DPX21 for Dolby Digital 7.1 surround headphones. Both wired, and some of the highest quality gaming headsets I've ever used.

u/sackofnouns · 0 pointsr/playstation

This is what I have, 2 TB is overkill (for now)
I have a decent amount of games on mine now and over 700 GB left also SSHD is faster than regualr HDD

u/cenorexia · 2 pointsr/playstation

You can not remap buttons on remote play which is annoying to say the least.

There are grip add-ons for the Vita like this one which do work great, but are useless if the developer decides to have L2/R2 mapped to the front screen instead of the back touch area.

u/PearlDrummer · 9 pointsr/playstation

I'm currently using this drive and have no issues whatsoever!
