Smile E shop Help-Middle East

[FONT=Calibri][SIZE=3]Hi All,[/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=Calibri][SIZE=3]Hoping all is fine. I Live in Lebanon(Beirut)-Middle east. and im going to buy a 3DS XL(U.S) next week, my question is, will I face any problems downloading games from e-shop with my visa card? or is it better getting the ''European 3DS''. The reason im asking this is because im going to download all my games using Eshop so I wanted to know if I will face any issues before buying.[/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=Calibri][SIZE=3]thanks a lot[/SIZE][/FONT]

Hello, I don't think you will have any problem, I live in Lebanon too and my friend's friend has a US 3DS and downloaded Pokemon Y from eShop using his credit card. I currently have a Europe 3DS and will be getting a US 3DS, because the games in Europe 3DS are more expensive than US 3DS, (for example Pokemon Y he told me was for $40 I believe, while in the Europe 3DS it was for 40 pounds). So I don't think you will face any problems. If you want to make sure, ask around more to make sure it will work.

Hello
i'm from the middle east also - israel.

The european 3ds is easier because they accept all credit cards.
in the US 3ds you need US credit card to buy stuff
so u need to change country to Canada in order to buy.
Works for my friends and me.
hope i helped.

this i most definitely agree!
only US issued CCs are accepted as far as I know.
though games are slightly pricier, you won't have much problem with regards to using your CC account when buying.
