    I don't have a link to the original reference, but here it is, anyways.

    We've had a lot of comments when we'd write up a post about new additions to the PS Store crying foul against the need for a credit card. Well, Sony has finally addressed the issue with what they're dubbing PlayStation Network Tickets. You can say PSNT if you want, but that reminds me of "pissant" and that's just not nice. These new tickets will be available in early June.

    Only available in the Japanese areas (for now), you can go to a nearby convenience store and pick up a ticket valued anywhere from 1,000 to 10,000 yen. This is a little different from Microsoft and Nintendo's approach to paying sans credit card -- the values are actually money, not points. That way, you know you're spending money and not subconsciously passing it off as "just 800 points".

    Since there is a heavy reliance on convenience stores, international offerings of the ticket may differ. We're not sure what they could be, but there are enough places to pick up the cards in the US -- let's get GameStop, EB Games, and Best Buy on board.</div>

    About time. I don't have access to a credit card and those rechargeable Visas have a $20 activation fee here, I'll finally be able to purchase some stuff off of PSN.

    Nice to be able to buy the credit from a store. It's kinda like the Wii VC cards, cept in actual dollar amounts instead of points.

    Chinese experts Wednesday chided the UN Human Rights chief for her remarks over the recent riots in Xinjiang, calling

    them "biased" and "indiscreet".

    "The remarks will definitely hurt relations between China and the UN in the field of human rights," said Pang

    Zhongying, an expert at the international studies department of Renmin University of China.

    Navanethem Pillay, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, reportedly expressed concern over the riots in Xinjiang

    as well as the situation in Tibet while delivering a report to the 12th session of the UN Commission on Human Rights on

    Tuesday.

    She criticized the Chinese government for "discrimination and the failure to protect minority rights."
    The report reflects "ingrained prejudice against China," and only repeated the old tones used by some Western countries

    against China, Pang said.

    Dong Yunhu, vice-president and secretary-general of China Society for Human Rights Studies, said some foreigners have

    always made their judgments on Tibet and Xinjiang based on fragments of information.
    "They should try to know more about Xinjiang and Tibet, especially the government&#39;s policies and measures to safeguard

    human rights there," he said.

    Li Baodong, China&#39;s permanent UN representative in Geneva, also expressed regret over Pillay&#39;s speech and said that the

    current issues in Xinjiang and Tibet are "not about human rights."
    "It is regrettable that the high commissioner did not respect the fact and interferes in the domestic affairs of a

    sovereign country," he said.
    A different picture
    In another development, a high-level EU official said yesterday after a four-day visit to Tibet that life there is

    quite different from what Western people are generally told.
    "I must tell you that from what we were able to witness, there is religious freedom," Mario Sepi, president of the

    European Economic and Social Committee, told the media in Beijing.
    "We saw people in the streets praying, going about their own business with their own personal religious beliefs. We

    visited two temples they were full."
    Sepi said he was also impressed by the "tremendous economic growth" in Tibet.
