PSN Cards (PlayStation Network Cards) - How to get them if you are in a different region (Best source)

Updated: 03-07-2016

For Impatient reader, here is the link to the PSN cards, others do go through the post so that you will get a fair picture of this:
For US PSN cards:
For UK PSN cards:
For JP PSN cards:
For HK PSN cards:

The best way to buy games from PlayStation Network (PSN) is by using the PSN cards.
Unfortunately, even-though the PlayStation is region unlocked the PSN account is region locked. Each and every PSN region store has its advantage as well as disadvantage. 
But they are out of the scope of this post.

What we will cover in this post is:
  • Usage of PSN card.
  • How to get the PSN card if you are not in the region (including the best source to get one).
Usage of PSN card:
  1. Don't have to provide the Credit Card details to PSN.
  2. Can get support from Sony for issues with the card (if in case any issue pops up, which is very very rare)
  3. Money is credited to wallet in your account which comes in handy in times of cash crunch (especially if you are college student). 
  4. Can top up your PSN account from anywhere in the world, if you have the PSN card code.
  1. PSN cards are region based.
  2. Can't use the region card with a different region account.
  3. PSN cards manufactured for a particular region is available in that particular region only, most of the time.
 How to get the PSN card if you are not in the region (including the best source to get one)

Let us see how we can tackle the disadvantages we mentioned above.
PSN cards are region based.
  • This limitation only restricts you from getting the proper PSN card if you are in a different region than the region in which you have created your account. But we can easily obtain PSN card code via email by purchasing the digital PSN card from a reputed online vendor. Digital mean that the seller will email you the code (which is all you need).
 Can't use the region card with a different region account.
  • Since all you need is the PSN card code, you can buy them online as stated before.
PSN cards manufactured for a particular region is available in that particular region only, most of the time.
  • Why worry about this when you can get the cards online.
Buying the PSN card (digital) online:

The real question is how to buy a PSN card (digital) online by paying a modest amount for the card.
There are many online sites who sell the PSN cards online. But most of them are very costly.
Since we had already shelled out much money for our PlayStation lets us try saving some money in this area.
Higher cost necessarily mean higher safety in the purchase.

After much trial and error, I had found the perfect site to buy the PSN cards. It is called play-asia. 

Direct links are as follows:

For US PSN cards:

For UK PSN cards:

For JP PSN cards:

For HK PSN cards:

Again, go for Digital, it is fast and cheaper.

Why buy from this site?
Well, for one thing, they have been in business for a long time and their reputation is awesome.
Second, I myself have tried buying from them and it works perfectly fine.
Third, compared to other online sellers they are quite reasonable in their pricing.
Fourth, their response from the support team is awesome.

Hope this post helps you guys.

Old Trick - Net Send

'Net Send' command is used to send messages to other users, computers, or messaging names on the network. The Messenger service must be running to receive messages; it is automatically enabled when you install windows. You can send a message only to a name that is active on the network.

Messenger Services can be used to send advertisements and spam to vulnerable machines on a network.

A box will pop up on your screen with the text "Messenger Services" at the top, but the text will be an ad for a product or service interrupting whatever you're doing on the computer at the time.

To make sure this doesn't happen to you, just take the following steps:

Windows 2000

1. Click Start -> Programs -> Administrative Tools -> Services

2. Scroll down and highlight "Messenger"

3. Right-click the highlighted line and choose Properties.

4. Click the STOP button.

5. Select Disable or Manual in the Startup Type scroll bar

6. Click OK

Windows XP

1. Click Start -> Control Panel

2. Click Performance and Maintenance

3. Click Administrative Tools

4. Double click Services

5. Scroll down and highlight "Messenger"

6. Right-click the highlighted line and choose Properties.

7. Click the STOP button.

8. Select Disable or Manual in the Startup Type scroll bar

9. Click OK

Net Send

CommandNet Send {name | * | /DOMAIN | /USERS} Message

Name Is the username, computer name, or messaging name to send the message to. If the name is a computer name that contains blank characters, enclose the alias in quotation marks (" ").

* Sends the message to all the names in your group.

/DOMAIN Sends the message to all the names in the workstation domain.

If name is specified, the message is sent to all the names in the specified domain or workgroup.

/USERS Sends the message to all users connected to the server.

Message Is text to be sent as a message.

Google As Your Proxy

Use Google As Proxy

Many schools block access to certain sites such as orkut,youtube and even some blogs but it is very difficult for anybody to block access to google.However using these methods, you can gain access to blocked sites easily.
Here I describe what I believe is an most uncommon way for bypassing blocked sites using google.

Method 1:
The first and common Method of using google to bypass blocked sites is to search for the site and then clicked the "cached" link that appears on google. Easy and frequently works for static information.

Method 2:
Passing the site through google translator works well. Here's the URL|en&

Dont click on the above link copy and paste it in your browser(where is the site that you wish to visit)

This translates the site from english to english and works because the ip address will appear as google.You can actually do this with any langpair. Change en|en in the URL above to spanish by using es|es and it still works.

Method 3:
Another unique method is to search through google mobile. Google mobile is very similiar to the translation method above.

Just search for your site with google mobile and click on the link it provides. Here's is tech-recipes brought up through google mobile search. Once again, this will allow you to bypass any blocks because the IP request comes from google not for you.

Like the translation method above, google will continue to "proxy" as you continue to visit links through the site.

And yes it is also useful to retrive some information from net which is currently not available.
Let us assume that was down and I want to download one software urgently from there so What I do is search google for software name and when I see the link in google search.I open the cached page of that page and will get the rs link so this trick is very useful in such conditions........

Starting a company in India

(Step by step process)

I suddenly got bit by this bug urging me to figure out how people start a company and it kept bugging me.
So I started my search for information regarding this and found out that it is a very simple process (Now-a-days), with the advent of internet and e-filing concept anyone can start a company without even visiting any government office.
The process can be divided into four major steps.
They are:
  • Applying for DIN (Director Identification Number)
  • Acquiring DSC (Digital Certificate) and Registering DSC with MCA
  • New User Registration
  • Incorporation of a Company
We will see each of the steps in detail now.
  •  Applying for DIN: 
                   You need to file eForm DIN-1 in order to obtain DIN.
                   Step by step process for DIN can be found at
                   DIN is mandatory for all the persons to be mentioned in Form 1A as proposed promoters.
  •  Acquiring DSC (Digital Certificate) and Registering DSC with MCA
                  While the DIN Application is being processed, you should apply for a Digital Signature Certificate (DSC). 

                   Acquire DSC -A licensed Certifying Authority (CA) issues the digital signature. Certifying Authority (CA) means a person who has been granted a license to issue a digital signature certificate under Section 24 of the Indian IT-Act 2000.Some of the vendors who provide DSC can be found at
                   You can select the level of security and the number of years of validity and the cost for DSC depends on these. Most vendors will deliver the DSC to you via mail with instructions on how to activate it. (DSC should be acquired for only one of the Directors who will be authorized to make submission to ROC/MCA on behalf of all the promoters).

                 Register DSC -Role check for Indian companies is to be implemented in the MCA application. Role check can be performed only after the signatories have registered their Digital signature certificates (DSC) with MCA. The step by step process for role check can be found at

  • New User Registration
                  To file an eForm or to avail any paid service on MCA portal, you are first required to register yourself as a user in the relevant user category, such as registered and business user.
                 Registration can be done at
  •  Incorporation of a Company
                Once the DIN and DSC has been acquired we can go ahead and apply for the name of the company to be registered, by filing Form1A.

                While filling the Form1A, Once the DIN's of the promoters of the company,most of the fields in the form are automatically filled.Before short listing the names for your company, you should check if the name is taken by another other company or not by checking it at

                 Once the form is filled and signed with a DSC by the promoter you have to login to MCA and submit the form online. Application fee of Rs 500 has to be paid for the Form1A. You will get a Service Request Number (SRN) after paying the fee. Status of the application can be tracked using the SRN. 
                Name approval usually take somewhere between 5-10 days. After the name has been approved you have to incorporate the company within 60 days.

               After applying for the name of the company we can start preparing the documents required to incorporate the company. The required documents and the forms to be filled depends upon the proposed company type.
