    if it weren’t for the fact that all the details on my JPN account are fabricated and most likely nonsensical, i would purchase a few of these. why limit it to certain areas, just let everyone go at everything, and warn them of the language it’s in. does no one outside of japan speak the language?

    I can read the Jpn language. However, I just went thru setting up a new acct. for the Jpn download and discovered that I can’t buy anything because I don’t have a credit card registered to a valid address in Japan.. no other ways around it?
