    There seem to be a ton of JRPGs I want to play coming out, and I was thinking about switching my account to a JP one. I was wondering if I do that will it auto convert Playstation cash card to yen? It would save me a lot of import cost as I don't really care much for physical games.

    If it doesn't how would I go about getting money on the account outside of importing cards?

    Short answer: No.

    Long answer: No, it won't, as PSN Play Station Store cards are region locked.

    Figured it would be too easy. Could I add funds via debit/credit card?

    Your best option is to buy Japanese PSN cards, as anything that ties to you will have an address check (which you'll fail, being outside the country you're trying to buy from).

    Okay another question about regions. If I set my region to china and download a game that has American subtitles on the cartridge like moe chronicle, will it still have the subtitle option?
