I had my CitiBank Visa card for over 8 years, and CitiBank offered me to transfer my CitiBank Visa card to the Sony Platinum Card last year. Of course, I transferred my card right away because there was no reward program for CitiBank Visa card.

Anyway, I think the Sony Card is great if you are a movie lover. I mainly use my Sony Card to redeem movie tickets, because watching movie in New York City is extremely expensive (near $10/ticket). With the Sony Card, I was able to redeem 2 movie tickets for every 1000 points (1 point / dollar, or 5 points / dollar for Sony product), or 10 movie tickets for every 4900 points. I have earned 30 free movie tickets within a year. I think it is a very good value, because most of the credit card companies offer reward program at about 1% reward rate ($1 reward for every $100 you spend). However, if you use your Sony Card for movie tickets, you will have near 2% reward rate. But this is not all, the movie tickets from the Sony Card are unrestricted, that is, you can use is at anytime, even the first day of a new movie. In addition, all the tickets that I have received were redeemable at any Sony related theaters, including IMAX theater. Thus, if you use the tickets at IMAX, you will have a even better value.
However, if you are not a movie maniac, then the Sony Card is pretty much like other credit cards out there. But I have to say, CitiBank has a very good customer service.
