@LilPika PlayAsia gives the following error: We regret to tell you that we cannot continue with your order as the item you are trying to buy is restricted.
Also, i managed to acquire a USD card from elsewhere, but the MS Store returns the error: This code is for another region Take it back where you got it and see if you can get one for your region.
So yeah, looks like they're reaaaaally trying to prevent cross region purchases for whatever reason.
