Shopping on PSN from an unlisted country .. ?
Shopping on PSN from an unlisted country .. ? –
Hey everyone .. I wanted to know if there was any way I could buy stuff from PlayStation Store, even when I am located in a country which is not listed in the PSN's list of countries ..
You see, the countries supported by PSN are like the elite and most developed countries of the world .. what about the rest of us !?
I am from Pakistan, which is not an available option in PSN, so I currently have a US address based PSN account .. The problem with this is that I cannot add my debit card to this account, since the billing country on my debit card is Pakistan, not US ..
So this question is particularly going out to other people who are facing a similar issue ... have you managed to somehow use your credit/debit card on a PSN account ??
I really wanna buy a lot of game addons, and arcade games too, etc ..
And btw, when I entered my debit card details, I got a message saying that I should check my details and try again .. I then phone the bank people and ask them if there were any recent online transactions that took place through my card ... He said that some 'PlayStation Network' company has just charged you with a US$1 fee .... for what ?!!?
It is possible to purchase PSN titles from any country, but you have to do it in a round about way. Having the USA account is the first step, so you have that covered. The second step, is to find an online vendor that sells the US version of the PSN cards. And then purchase a PSN card for what ever dollar denomination you want. Once you have the card, you can use that on the PSN just fine. Be warned though, some online games still try to connect to the region that your PSN is assigned to, so, if there is no server for your area, it may not work. There aren't many games that do this right now though, so it isn't too bad. The 1 dollar charge was Sony's way of checking to make sure that your credit card was valid. Most companies do some sort of small charge as a validation.. ie: paypal, etc. If this doesn't all make sense, if you do a search for how people in the US download from the Japan PSN, there is a step by step on how to do it for the Japanese PSN. There are even companies that will email you the Japanese PSN Card's number through email, so you don't have to wait. Not sure if there are any US PSN Card retailers that are doing this though.
