But you should know that you cannot directly buy a digital PS4 game from the PSN store, if you don't have a US debit or credit card. Even a PayPal account will not work if it is not registered to a US address.

Do note that game prices on the PSN Store do not include taxes. For example, a $7.99 game might cost $8.79 with tax. So make sure you buy a store card which has a value slightly above the price of a game you want to buy.
