- Although PSN cards have recently
debuted in Canada, according to PS3Hype.nl (linked above) in Europe there are still no prepaid cards for the PlayStation Network.
That being said, apparently many people who don't own a credit card can't buy things from the PlayStation Store... unless they follow the guide below, of course.
Note: Before we start this tutorial you should know that the PlayStation Network cards (so you can buy after reading this tutorial) can be used in the U.S. PlayStation Store.
This means that no content from the Store can download. Also, the add-ons that you can store in the U.S. are not compatible with European games.
Use this' trick 'only if you complete a game or PSN game to download from the U.S. Store. You can also use this for example PS One classics and PSP games.
