Hey, bagong member ako dito tapos gusto ko bumili ng Ps plus card sa data blitz, Wala kasi akong Credit card na pwede ipangbili direkta sa ps4 ko. Yung Ps4 ko dito binili dito sa Pilipinas tapos yung Psn account ko eh Us. Gagana ba yun kung yung PS plus card sa data blitz ang bibilhin ko? Wala ba magiging problema? First time ko kasi bibili eh.

PSN Cards are a way of adding funds to your PlayStation Network wallet, allowing you to purchase games and game content from PlayStation Store, PlayStation Home and the SingStore, without the need of a credit card. There are specific PSN cards per region so kung US ang PSN account mo then US PSN cards lang magagamit mo for that.

PS+ cards - you get exclusive deals & discounts and this is required para lang makapag online ka.

Both are optional.

Clarification lang, you can still connect your ps4 online para makapag download ka ng mga libreng patches/updates for your games and even for your ps4 unit itself PERO kung gusto mo makapag laro online with your friends or other people then dun mo kakailanganin yung ps+. There are some games that comes with a 14day trial ng ps+ enclosed in the game case itself so you can use those.

Marami ka din mabibilhan ng psn cards online na mas mura kesa sa mga local stores dito sa tin. Ewan ko sa iba pero ako im getting mine from offgamers.com, legit yan ilang beses na ko nakabili sa kanila and they sell other game cards too for other regions as well (PSN, PS+, steam,etc). You can use your pinas card (in my case, BDO ATM mastercard) to purchase from them tapos padala na lang nila yung code syo via email and magagamit mo na agad. Mabilis at maayos ang transaction sa kanila.

Yung PS Plus card pag binili mo at pinasok mo yung code, active na agad yung PS Plus subscription.

Pag bumili ka naman PSN card lang, bibilhin mo rin yung subscription. Mas pinadali lang yung pag-subscribe.

Yes kasi successful naman ang mga previous purchases ko sa kanila at gumana naman yung mga code na nakuha ko from them. May instances na medyo delayed ang verification ng payment at arrival ng code sa email ko pero madali namang naayos dahil meron silang customer service chat line na pwde mo makontak kahit alanganing oras para mapabilis yung process.

Kaya kasi ako nag scout ng online sellers ng mga ganyang items kasi namroblema ako sa stocks locally lalo na nung denomination na gusto ko bilhin. Common kasi dito is mga pang US accounts pero pag SG or HK medyo mahirap. Hindi naman ako desperado nung first time i tried buying from them kasi nakita ko bukod sa mababa yung price nila (konting difference from the local stores here) nag research din ako ng mga reviews about them and so far ok naman mga nabasa ko so i gave it a shot tapos yun nga naging satisfied buyer ako ever since. Nung unang bili ko sa kanila it was around 11pm ng gabi and after about almost an hour tapos na yung transaction - all from registering an account, buying the item, getting the code and successfully redeeming it on my psn account - i was able to download the game i wanted right away.

Pero dont take my word for it, if you have doubts on purchasing like these online then bumili ka na lang sa mga local stores dito para din sa ikapapanatag ng loob mo.

Hi, I'm new here at pinoyps, and I just wanted to ask if anyone has experience from buying in amazon and galleon.ph. I plan to import some Japanese games, so I wanted to ask people if they have personal experiences in dealing with these sites. Thanks.

ewan ko sa galleon.ph pero sa amazon legit yan pero not all products can be shipped to the philippines lalo na kung dun ka sa main amazon bibili. Kung mag import ka lang din naman ng japanese games then just get it straight from japan na lang, may mga sites tulad ng nippon-yassan na legit din na pwede mo bilhan at direct from japan yan. As for the payment and delivery options, just refer to their respective FAQs na lang.

Welcome to Pinoy PlayStation, Aethoria-7!

It's easy to buy from Amazon if you're in the US. I'm not sure if they ship games here in the Philippines. But for digital games, no hassle so far, at least from Nintendo games. :mrgreen: But there's a company here named Johnny Air that can offer a service for you. Order from Amazon, ship it to Johnny Air's US address, then Johnny Air will deliver it here. They have a shop in Megamall. You may contact them and inquire about their prices. :)

For importing Japanese games, I suggest getting it from Play-Asia.com instead. Though there are possibilities of high custom taxes here. :( I tried ordering once from Play-Asia. No hassles. Just with customs. :D

@grayfox17 @Daniel Thanks for the info!

One last question. Have any of you tried pre-ordering from amiami? (I plan to pre-order the 20th anniversary edition of Persona 5, since we would only get a PS4 steelbook edition when P5 gets released next year.)

So anyway, would you need to pay immediately once you pre-order, or will you only be charged once the game gets finally released? Also, you need to use PayPal, right? How do you put JPY in your PayPal account?

Haven't tried ordering in amiami yet. It's sells Japan-only stuff, right? If it works like PlayAsia. When you preorder, you give your credit card info right away. You only get charged when the game gets released.

If it requires a JP PayPal account, you will need to create a JP PayPal account. You will need to put a Japan address to a PayPal account. Maybe Google Japan's address could work? To load money, maybe this thread could help. viewtopic.php?f=237&t=18459

never tried amiami pero nung nag research ako about them dati medyo hindi maganda yung mga feedbacks na nakikita ko - primarily yung sa customer service nila so i tested them. Sinubukan ko mag email sa kanila for inquiry na wala sa FAQ nila and they never replied kaya hindi ko na tinuloy na bumili dun. Importante ang fast reponse from those sites lalo pa't you're importing, pag nagkaproblema sa tracking ng package mo pano pa sila mahahabol?

As for pre-order, sa experience ko with nippon yassan, you can opt to pay right away or later. If you choose to pay later bibigyan ka nila ng reminder near the release date of the item to pay up. (check here for more info - https://www.nippon-yasan.com/cms.php?id_cms=10). Btw, I didn't use paypal, nagbayad ako diretso using my atm card.

Suggestion ko lang, antayin mo muna magkaron ng info about local release dito sa tin bago ka mag decide from importing. It's way too early to be putting in PO right now.

@Daniel Okay, thanks for the info!

@grayfox17
For PS4 lang kasi yung collector's edition ng game pag ma-localize eh, and mas okay yung Japanese collector's edition. Medyo may difference ang price ng nippon yasan and sa amiami, but if atm card okay na, then I guess I'll go for nippon yasan na lang. Thanks for the info!

Sa Wakas!!! nahanap ko rin ang forum na para sa mga Playstation users.. ^_^

Got my PS3 superslim last march'16, 2nd hand lang TEXT SPEAK VIOLATION pero well maintained at mganda yung package na games na included; (nba2k16, gtaV, farcry3, TLOU, ufc3, atbp).

since grade school days pa matagal ko na gustong magkaroon ng sariling console, but unfortunately, we dont have that budget at ayaw ng parents ko (my mom was a teacher) na ma-hook sa computer kasi "nakaka bobo" daw eto ng pag aaral (hehe).

Until nag work ako, playing computer games (PC,PS Xbox) pa din ako -- nag rerent lang sa mga cafe's and shops. Thinking kelan kaya ako makakabili ng sarili kong unit. bumigay na PC ko sa bahay kaya wala na din ko mapaglaruan sa bahay at hindi nman ako na sasatisfied sa paglalaro sa tablet.

Hanggang sa dumating sa point na sinabi ko; maybe its time na bumili na ako ng playstation kahit 2nd hand lang. some of my co-workers before nag encourage sa akin na instead na ps2 (yes, ps2 pa balak ko noon) ang kunin ko, mag ps3 na lang ako dahil mas madaming games at marami pa akong makaka trade na ps3 users din.

YUP, 2nd hand lang ps3 ko pero im proud kasi 1st time ko magkaroon ng sariling console at galing yun sa backpay ko at pinag trabahuhan/pinagpuyatan ko... I salute gamers here na sa sariling kayod galing ang pinambili.

Still noob user here pero hope joining here will add knowledge sa games at sa iba pang info. and hopefully good friends.. thank you at pasensya sa mahabang kwento ko.. happy gaming! ^_^

Dude, TLOU, you're in for a treat.

Yeah, me too. It's only through work that I'm able to fulfill my gaming dream.

I have a PS3 too that I bought last Christmas, I've been playing it more than my PS4, actually. >.>
