Region related query

#1 Posted by sam1am7000 (99 posts) -

Hi Duders, I'm from India but I picked up a copy of BF3 from the US. Now I want to get into the premium pack. How do I go about doing this?

I already have a PSN with an american address, but can I use a non-US credit card to buy stuff from the US PSN store? I'm worried about the billing address not matching up (I cannot change the country)...

(Also I'm pretty sure that I have to buy the DLC from the US PSN store for it to work with my copy of the game.).

Any help would be hugely appreciated!

@sam1am7000: dont know about PSN but i have a XBL a/c with NA as its region(i'm from india too) and i haven't had any problems in buying stuff. you could try logging into battlelog and buying it from there.

wait, what did you do with your CC billing address? and how do i buy stuff from battlelog? I thought one could get PS3 stuff only from PSN.

@sam1am7000: i didn't change anything in my billing address,it just works, I'm not sure if it will work if you buy it from battlelog though, your best bet is to contact Customer service for PSN and EA.

@xdaknightx69: Hmm, so your credit card billing address is till Indian even though you have entered your own address as some US address?

I've already opened a ticket with EA.

@sam1am7000: yes, the address i entered is some random numbers and letters lol and used the 90210 pin (ty TV show), i bought the Xbox back when it first came out and didn't have India as a region option.

@sam1am7000: buy PSN cards online for the US store. it's the easiest way. hunt for cards on ebay or find an online store that sells codes directly and sends them to your email. like this one: http://www.pcgamesupply.com/buygames/sony-playstation-network-cards/
