Region Change

5 replies 182 views Edited Jan 9, 2014

Hi everyone,

 

My husband and I moved to the United States, in October of last year, from Canada. today he brought home a couple of playstation prepaid cards, but they don't work on our accounts. we had this same problem with our xboxs. but he managed to switch our canadian accounts to american accounts, that way we can renew our subscription to xbox live and buy prepaid cards. now we have been trying to do the same with our playstation3 's. is there a way to do the same? or am i going to have to send money across the boarder to our friends to buy us our cards?

somthing about that seems illegal, help please

There no way to change to change your account region on PSN so you will have buy the PSN cards from the region it was created.There many online stores that sells codes of PSN cards.

Definitely not illegal.  PS Plus codes from the US work on Canadian accounts, but likely prepaid dollar cards won't due to the currency.  There are online sites that sell cards in various currencies and amount that may ship to the US.
