|Welcome to the PS Community.

 

First of all PSN Store DLC [Downloadable Content] are region locked.  For example, DLC content purchased in the US PSN Store will not work with game disc purchased in Saudi Arabia, Egypt nor any other region for that matter. To avoid having these issues stick to the PSN Store that supports your region/country.

 

In the US the PSN Store only accepts payments from US addresses, so perhaps the same apply the Saudi Arabia PSN store; meaning, that you might need a credit card whom associated address is in Saudi Arabia.

 

The community forums for your region is found here. They should be able to better help you.

It was DLC that the poster/responder was saying wont work, DLC has to 100% be purchased from the same region as the original game.
