buying from other regions
i reside in north america, so my main master PSN account is usa. but ive also made a japanese account and a uk account because the stores are different and its interesting seeing whats available in different regions. long story short, i want to buy a game from the uk store but when i enter in my visa info,i cant change the region from uk to usa, so i try plan b. buy a uk psn card.. i cant find them anywhere and its so frustrating. i looked all over the web for a site that would maybe have imported them but they wAnt like $70 for a £50 card… can anybody help me find a better deal?
I am afraid it might be difficult, I am finding very benificial to buy online from the states due to the current exchange rate.
1 usd is like .80 eur. so id understand that. but every site that has eur carda wants an arm and a leg for them.. plus usa has 10, 20, 50 dollar cards while europ has 20, 50 eur cards. its just so frustrating cuz of the whole region currency thing. one would think that sony wouldnt make it so damn difficult to buy games from other regions. GRR!
lol I didn't realise the EU store had anything that special, I though we just got the spillovers from USA. I shouldn't complain really, Australia has it a lot worse than us.
not to say that eur store is better, its just a different selection. the usa store is def loaded with way more content than eur. but so far the jap store is the biggest i think. any luck finding a site that sells uk cards in us currency?
any website other than ebay, amazon, or playasia.com would be so helpful. thanks again
I had this problem before. You have to make an account again and choose your country. Only then your VISA will work. And also if you buy a PSN card from your country and try to put it in the UK store it will not work.
A website to buy a PSN card from the Uk: http://cgi.ebay.com/UK-50-PLAYSTATION-NETWORK-Prepaid-Card-PSN-for-PS3-PSP_W0QQitemZ250551946082QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_VideoGames_VideoGameAccessories_VideoGameAccessories_JN?hash=item3a560f4b62#ht_1457wt_954
Tbh the easy way to do that is to create Your PSN using website:
I have 3 – UK, US and Japan and I can pay with my credit card on all 3 😀
Hope this helps.
