Thread: Sending PSN cards to friends?

    Question Sending PSN cards to friends?

    Hello there!

    I have a few questions: I don't have a PS3 and I have never been to the PSN, but I have a friend all the way in Brazil whom I'd like to purchase a PSN card for.

    Basically my question is: If he has PSN accounts with the country selected as Canada or USA, but his PS3 is bought from Brazil, but I send him a US PSN card, can he use it with those accounts, or can he only use cards from his PHYSICAL region? He also has an account with Brazil set as its country. However, I don't know weather I can get a Brazilian PSN card.

    I hope my question is clearly understood! Thanks.

    His/Her friend is a he because he said it. The OP stated "I send him​ a US PSN card".

    Also, to the OP I don't think the US card will work unless he changes his account location (which he should be able to do). The currency is different, and the US card is for US store.

    Unless you set your account to be in Japan, but physically you are somewhere else.

    if while creating his account he put it in USA then yes a USA PSN code would work.

    btw why would need one if he bought a ps4 from brasil? :o PS4's cost over 1500$ there. it's cheaper to literally buy a plane ticket to the US, buy a ps4 and then go back.

    Why does he need to be female?

    Thank you, your answer is very clear. :^)

    That's not a question that should be asked here, really, it's kind of obvious I am trying to give a gift to a friend(while having no idea how to give said gift).

    Are you implying people of the opposite gender can't be friends?

    Can you please rephrase that? I don't quite get the context. Also feel free to tweet to me with the reply because this is getting off-topic.

    Eh if he selected US as country while creating the account then he can use US (Reg 1) psn cards. Psn cards of other regions won't work and even though US and Canada are in the same region a Canadian psn card wont work in the US.

    As of right now, there isn't a way in gifting PSN cards to friends. The only option would be to send it to him by message.
