Sony handing out $50 in PlayStation Store credit with new Xperia Z3+ or Xperia Z4 Tablet purchases
posted by Mihai A. / Nov 24, 2015, 6:38 AM
The Xperia Z3+, a slightly improved Xperia Z3 variant that Sony unveiled earlier this year, officially launched in the United States a few weeks ago, and now it looks like Sony is planning to put some weight behind marketing the phone in the upcoming months. Sony's recent campaign is yet another sign that the manufacturer isn't ready to officially launch the new Xperia Z5 in the US.
Nevertheless, if you're tempted by either the Sony Xperia Z3+ or the Xperia Z4 tablet, Sony will throw in $50 in PlayStation Store credit. To redeem the credit, customers will have to send photographs of the original sales receipt as well as fill out the IMEI number. All of this will be done through a dedicated website that closes for redemptions on January 31st, 2016. Devices purchased from either Amazon or B&H Photo Video between by the end of the year are valid for this promotion.
It's interesting to see Sony incentivizing the Xperia lineup of smartphones and tablets through PlayStation credit. In some ways, Sony's PlayStation division is lending out a helping hand to the company's own mobile business. It remains to be seen if this kind of cross-promotion is something that Sony is considering for the long run, or if it's just an attempt at clearing out Xperia Z3+ stocks.
What do you guys think of the deal?

PA doesn't like to review Xperia's. They only like to write articles to give you an impression that Sony wants to get rid of the Z3+ because it's such a terrible phone. I've got news for you PA: it's actually a great phone.

Well , it depends. I find no phone with SD810 good enough, Even if it is the revised version, A Nexus 6P heats a lot after 30 min of usual mixed workload. MS is the only one which has applied liquid cooling to that dreadful chip.

Yes I agree with your point , but few reports have been saying otherwise . Even on Phonearena there was a prototype that overheated and the camera had to shut down due to the same. But since it was a prototype , I will let that pass. A9 chip is the absolute best chip so far IMHO, throttles less than 10% under full load.

Pros: great battery life, thin and easy to hold, decent build quality, great screen, reasonable colours, not bad camera, SD810 well tamed, good stereo speakers Cons: there's no Apple logo Score: 6.5. I guarantee it.

The Z4 tablet isn't available to purchase in the States unless you want to go through third parties who jack up the price. Sony had it on their website with "Coming in November". They updated it yesterday to say "coming soon". It has been saying coming soon since May. I called Sony 3 days ago and they had no idea when it was going to be available to purchase.
