Newb question...
I'm wanting to download a game or 2 that aren't available physically.

2 different video game people told me that they wouldn't do it with a credit card b/c of hacking.
That I should get a pre-paid thing from Gamestop or 7-11.

One of the people who told me this worked at a store, that wasn't Gamestop that didn't sell these.

So, true? Or will a CC be fine?
Is it general knowledge to just buy these cards?

I told myself I wouldn't use my CC on PSN after that scare last year, but I still do. I'm just too lazy to go buy PSN cards.

I used my debit card since and nothing has happened. But I do like using the prepaid cards a lot more than using my debit.

I'll just get a pre-paid tomorrow then, not risk it.

All I want is some Mega Man!

Before you run out to get a pre paid card try amazon for discounted cards. Obviously dont trust any shady sites but you can usually find cheaper cards that you would in a brick and mortar store.

And this. Though I do think that getting away from a typical 2D scroller has something to do with it.

I was looking at Mega Man 10. But I see there's a few in the "Store" area.
I'll try 10 first I guess, it was only like $9.99

I pretty much use my debit card. I had it stored on there when it was hacked and I never had a problem. The only time I get the cards is because I get money towards discounted gas if I buy them at a nearby grocery store.
