By the way, if ever this is implemented in the US store, does this mean that anyone abroad can put load in their account via PayPal.

Not in this case. Paypal works by adding money to wallet, and you can only add increments of $5 to the wallet.

Bloody excellent, haven't had a CC in a while. So outside WipeOut HD (which I already have) and I guess Flower and Journey (which I'll pick up soon because of this), any notable PSN releases one should get?

I wanted to test their warning to see if they just saying that or they will enforce it.

"Please note that your PayPal™ account must be registered in the same country as your Sony Entertainment Network account. For example, if your Sony Entertainment Network account was set up in France, you will only be able to use PayPal™ if your PayPal™ account billing address is also in France."




So I made a payment to my UK account with my Greek Paypal Account.
The payment went through, I have no funds added yet. Sony must process the payment first. Probably they will reject it.

So enforced, I guess

Sure, and his complaint is with PayPal. It's incorrect to say "eBay, not PayPal." That doesn't mean anything. When he talks about PayPal, he is talking about eBay. That is what is means to be a subsidiary.

I have a stupid question regarding PSN accounts (particularly to add funds with paypal, but also in general).

I've never used the PSN website, so I go to login with the email/password I used when making a PSN account on the PS3 itself - my login details didn't work. I'm completely baffled, is the website account different to the account on the PS3?

It uses the same details as it's still your PSN account. Not trying to be patronising but are you 100% you got everything right? When I first logged in I'd forgotten both email and password since it's saved on PS3. I just reset password and everything was fine

Yeah, the password is stored in the PS3, so I've never entered it in since signing up way back. I guess I could have written it down wrong - reseting is the way to go. Thanks.

Amazon.com sell US PSN cards (online code), and you can purchase them from overseas. Just enter a real US address for your billing address and you're set.

Or how about buying the game on disc?

Can't buy on disc 'cause I'm in Japan (but I have a US credit card with a US address).

Wanted to buy Okami HD today, so decided to try the new PayPal option. Transaction failed, as PayPal said the payment's status is "Cancelled". Discovered then that my PayPal's address has to be the same as my PSN account's address (for no apparent reason). As Sony doesn't have my country in the selectable list when creating a PSN account, I was forced, long ago, to create my PSN account with an address from a neighbouring country (we're both in the EU though). Naturally this fake address isn't the same one I use with PayPal (which isn't a company from the stone age and lets me use my real address). Now I'm stuck using those stupid PSN cards, which have to be the exact same country's as my PSN address (again, for no apparent fucking reason), and even the new PayPal option is useless. I haven't touched my PS3 for a long time, but was kinda interested in PS+ and stuff, and would have probably bitten the bullet as an impulse buy via PayPal, but now I'm quite pissed off and am gonna go back to avoiding my PS3. Sony just doesn't want money.

tl;dr: Just found out that PSN PayPal is useless and wanted to rant.

I didn't check, as I can't change the country anyways. (I assume it all has to be the same)

Edit: My PSN account's full adress is the same as PayPal account's, except for the different country.

Sorry for the late reply. If you're in Japan, you can buy Journey from Japan PS Store. The Japanese title is "風ノ旅ビト" (kaze no tabibito). As for the disc, you can import it from online stores like Play-Asia.

Can't you add exact funds when purchasing something? That's how it's always worked for me.
