Wait I don't have to keep switching stores to check for updates?

I meant credit as in existing credit remaining for a gift card that is tied to my US account

I do this too. I have a few apple store IDs though I only really buy paid games on my Philippines and US accounts. Aside from the early setup, its not really a big hassle.

What about progress though. Once the game launches in your main store and you download that one dont you have to start over?

This is why I made the leap of faith for Hearthstone. Everything is kept on the battle.net servers. Changing from the CAD version to US should not lose my me data

Here are my fake addresses, if someone want to move in with me for iTunes purposes, join its free xD

In Canada I live here according to iTunes xD

Av Lake

Duvernay
Quebec H7E 1V5
Canada

Or in New Zealand I live here xD:

Irvam 4
6
Cambourne
5026
New Zealand

I have accounts for New Zealand, Australia, Japan, Canada, US, Finland, France, Germany, and more that I cant remember...

To manage that, do it here:

AppleID

Now go on a try all those fantastic soft launch titles like Hordes of Heroes, for example...

How are you going to keep your progress when those games come out in the US? Thats my main biggest problem except for Hearthstone.

I just tried to make a CA account and it says there was a problem handling this request. Any ideas why? I made a NZ one fine.

EDIT: Never mind I got it
