Yes. The wording in the email makes it sound like you have to spend it in April but you can keep it for as long as you like.

Look back a few posts and someone has asked the official PSUK Twitter about this and they confirmed as such.

Thanks for the answer. I was in doubt too because of the wording.

Elder Scrolls has even worde combat.

I'd like to love NHL17, but I am not a Hockey fan.
I already have BF1, Horizons and I have played GTAV on Xbox 360 (yeah, I know).

Fuck, I am a jaded old bitter man. GTAV, Far Cry Primal or Dragon Age? What say you, internetters?

Out of those three, I can't not recommend GTA V, even if you've already played it.

I would still say it's the best choice out of those three, by some margin.

Is there someone I can contact to receive my code? Italian support is useless, Ask Playstation UK is useless, there's still one day remaining (I doubt saturday and sunday count), but probably I won't receive it.

I'm in the same "what to buy" boat.

Nioh looks good, but the demo was expired so I couldn't test it earlier today. Madness!

Dishonored has a nice world, I guess.

Shadow of Mordor has hack'n'slash fun.

Arkham Knight is the goddamn Batman, but I don't need more Batmobile in my life.

Yakuza I want to play the one I have as a Plus game first.

For Honor is so sexy and knightly, but still really expensive and my connection isn't thst stable.

The newest Tomb Raider? I'm a big UC fan but the first Reboot Raider never grabbed me.

I still have Unity to start, so Syndicate doesn't interest me.

Nioh is the one that looks the most interesting, but without the demo and at the highest price (meaning I'd have to order a new UK money card) I don't know. Back in the day I really liked Onimusha 1, though.

I still didn't get anything. And I really want to buy Persona 5 right now.

Where would be the right place to contact the support about it?

Edit: Fuck me, I got the code shortly after I last looked half an hour ago. Nvm then ^^

Same, noticed everyone in my country got their code when browsing some forums.
Sent a mail, they said codes were delayed and I would get it over the next couple of days. Won't happen, will send another mail next week and they'll give it I suppose. :p

edit: He even said I must have heard it wrong as nobody got them yet lolz

Still nothing, but meanwhile AskPlaystation UK posted users who didn't get the code yet will receive it AFTER easter as a PS4 notification.
This whole thing is a mess, some people received a notification, others a mail, now a notification again.

No, Sony told for all users who didn't get the mail, after easter on 17 they would send a notification on PS4 with the code. We are on 17 and on PS4 there's nothing.

Just an update to say we are on 18, now, and I didn't receive the notification as askplaystation told I should.
Now I don't know what to do, since their support is useless, telling me only to wait and wait and wait while in other places Sony reps told all codes were mailed already.

By gimmicky what do you mean? Yakuza 0 is pretty wacky and weird, but it's not really gimmicky imo, just different to a lot of games, very MGS like in away, in that it can flip between being super serious or utterly ridiculous (usually outside of the main story) when it feels like it, and doesn't really ever make a big deal about or even point it out. Highly recommend Zero, it's wonderful.

The fact is Sony's support is useless. They just told me to wait and wait, and when the final 18th apil thing popped out, I waited just to see there's no notification on my PS4.
And all of this because of their bug regarding newsletter/promo mails, which now I suppose is also linked to notifications on PS4 (aka if you don't receive mails, you won't receive notifications too).
EDIT: Maybe a usefull info, maybe not, I don't know at this point. But I just phoned to Sony's support and they told me there's a bug with web/Vita PSN, so people who spent 50€ by purchasing something from the web or by using Vita's store won't receive a mail or a notification.
They escalated my ticket, I'll report if something good will come out of this.

Be warned, your account will be permanently banned until you pay whatever you charged back, if you do that.

Same situation here, italian support is useless, they just continue to tell me that I'll receive the code later or via notification, but I have not received nothing.

I don't know what to do. I spent 51€ on the web store, a friend of mine spent 60€ on the web store and received the code without problem.

I'm also waiting for email/notification to appear and nothing so far. I'm slowly losing my patience since the voucher has to be redeemed by the end of the month.

Maybe they should be doing this promotion more often than once per year so the process of sending out vouchers becomes more fluid ;)

I did not know about the exact date, so i bought HZD on feb 20... then neir: auto on feb 22 (both preorders)
The starting date was feb 21... i wish i had realized this and moved the HZD preorder up two day... would have been 15 dollars in credit richer!...
