Total unfair

?

Do you agree with me that it's unfair for some people to not being able to purchase games from Eshop

  1. Yes.(If yes then you support pirating in this case)

    18.5%
  2. No.

    81.5%

    Not under a rock.
    Blah Blah, Nintendo E-shop only accepts Visa from and inside USA, Blah Blah.

    I WANT TO PURCHASE Mario Kart 8 DLC PACKS, BUT I CAN'T.

    Call me a pirate, because the only solution to play those DLC packs is using Piracy.
    Solutions I'm thinking of:
    Download the Update from NUS Downloader then extract it, blah blah whatever, and when Cafiine gets released I'll grab the DLC files and replace them with some existed files.
    Any suggestions?

    Cause using paypal to get an e-shop card is totally too much trouble. I see your point. Jep, those two extra clicks force you into piracy!

    Yeah, eShop cards. Also, does the UAE use the USA region? I'd assume they'd use the EUR region.
    I'd be careful. The Canadian dollar is low so what you can get here may be more expensive when converted to other currencies.

    "Nintendo E-shop only accepts Visa from and inside USA"
    Eh?
    What the hell are you talking about?
    Configure your eShop account properly and set it up to the right country!
    If you tell it you are from the USA what do you expect?

    Also: Voted NO as in learn to use the eShop.

    Yes, UAE is part of America according to Nintendo. And yes, I know Nintendo needs some Geography classes, in any case ask Australia.

    life Takes Visa, Life Takes Visa, Life Takes Visa.

    When my oldest son was 4 I found him marching up and down the hall chanting Life Takes Visa. They are worse than the soft drink industry. :)

    That's absurdly ridiculous. Yeah, if anything, buy eShop cards. If you can't, ask a temper to purchase one on your behalf and pay them via paypal to get the code. That'd be my next move. If anything, a $20 card should cover both DLC packs plus a Virtual Console game.

    If that is one of your solutions, then you need to share your method with the rest of us!

    I only have an European Wii U, so I can't speak for the American Wii U eShop, but I will suppose it works the same as the American 3DS eShop.
    If you use an American 3DS you can select any country from a list of many for your console, the same as with the European 3DS.
    If you select "United States of 'Murica", you can only use VISA or MASTERCARD with an address in the United States.
    But if you select any less restrictive country, let's say e.g. Mexico or Canada, you can use any VISA or MASTERCARD without any requirement on the address.

    PS: And the lesson to be learnt here, don't give tax money to the USA as a gift, they don't like it. Canada in the other hand will gladly allow you to buy games in their eShop and charge you taxes accordingly.
