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 ?!!?

that sucks!

umm one way around this would be to purchase "game cards" which you would be able to redeem.

Stay active as we may be giving some away in the future! :)

you should be able to select a country closest to you. You can actually select any country it just varies on store and your connection will drain in a country far far away lol.

That's too bad that that Euro gets almost nothing every week. We complain about no PS1 games here, and we can't complain compared to them.
