NEWBIE FROM KHOMASDAL

Hi guys and meisies.. New on here 38 year old ps3(second ps3) gamer. My birthday is on the 23 of august incase anybody wants to buy me a gift.... :lolno: :crazy: :crazy: :crazy:

The reason for me being on here is to mingle with other Namibian gamers. Only reacently got the ps3 online, which is actually the main reason why I am on this site. This being said I am here to stay.

A little off topic- any of you guys bought stuff from psn store? The reason I'm asking is that I struggling to get my credit card to be accepted(funds is not the problem), due to that I am registered under South Africa, because Namibia is not availible on the list of countries to chose from,so I had to go with South Africa. I hope I'm making any sense here :?:

Thanks for the welcome. As for advice with the credit card thingy; It is not a credit card issue. It's something to do with psn. Namibia is not registered with them.

Welcome welcome, enjoy your stay :)

Does PSN accept Paypal? Might be a good alternative

Yep. I found a game store(KZ Gaming)at Ster Kinekor(Maerua Mall)They sell PSN Vouchers. The guy there told me they will get stock during the course of this week. :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin:

@faomy: I dont think there is another alternative payment option other then visa or master cards. Actually you can buy vouchers from other online shops e.g.takenote.co.ca. They apparently email you the code as soon as payment is processed on the net. There is a downturn though, Takenote for example require you to have your credit card -what they call 3D secured. FNB Namibia told me they dont have that facility....eishhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Well it seems none of the forum members have bought from psn? I tried myself over a "mik" this weekend with no success. It keeps on saying credit card information is wrong; which I believe the only thing wrong is country.Sony seriously needs come to terms with the fact that third world countries are not so backwards as they think we are. Hell, we can be gamers too. :lol: :lol:

Re: NEWBIE FROM KHOMASDAL

i suppose thats one of the reasons they got hacked by Anonymous...to be honest i wouldnt recommend anyone buying over the psn any time soon (i think it was 2-3yrs ago that 500 000 peoples worth of private information got stolen by Anonymous quite easily and left psn down for 3 weeks if im not mistaken)

Re: NEWBIE FROM KHOMASDAL

Yeah I remember that story, was interesting and makes you think twice about certain service providers, I hope that never happens with Steam :P

...back on topic, why not just buy the PSN vouchers at local shops (I think I saw some at Musica too).
