Buying non NA games?

Hello. I own a PS4 and Xbox one with Canadian accounts. I want to purchase a game that’s not available in our region (2020 Tokyo Olympics PS4) as I haven’t seen it for the Xbox one.

How do buy and play on my PS4? Can I somehow buy it digitally? I did see HK region had it digitally.

Thanks

Just make a Hong Kong PSN account and buy Hong Kong region PSN cards from playasia.com. They'll send you the download code within 30 minutes and you can purchase your game thru PSN. Problem solved.

You're screwed with Xbox. I think it's region locked with Xbox.

Yeah. Thanks. I found that. But I can only use gift cards which will be ok. I don’t like how play Asia asks for a telephone number but I might have to.

That's only if they're sending merchant by mail. But in this case, they're just sending codes by email.

Hmm but pretty sure it asked for telephone to verify? I’ll have a look again. Maybe I need to look closer.

Verified mobile phone number is required for select orders depending on payment methods.

It won’t let me past this for digital cards.

Maybe I’ll try PayPal.
