Keep that support coming! And sony please leave a reply on this thread!
Also, Everyone! cast your votes here too, it helps on our cause...
I hate to tell you this but Sony does not post on these forums. But I did vote for this so you got my support all the way.
Just here to show my support.
When I signed up my country wasn't on th list "Thailand" and I thoght I'd picked Hong Kong but the ps3 is now saying my region is Taiwan. I've never even been to Taiwan.
I need to buy the vip codes for BC2 but can't.
...they should also let you change your online id.
That's exactly what PSN stalkers and harassers want. That way they can change their IDs without losing their trophies, stats and saves.
A few things I always tell people who get a PS3 for the first time - think carefully about the name that you intend to use. Do you want it to be recognizable and easy to remember? Is it acceptable to the Terms of Service? What are the chances of you regretting the name that you chose a year from now?
Always think carefully before you commit.
I just moved from France to Belgium (and before that I was in Germany ... yeah, Sony moving is not that unusual) and what did I get from customer service? I cite verbatim "You will need to repurchase the content if you wish to play it on your new PlayStation Network account." YES! They want me to purchase AGAIN what is already legally mine! Doesn't this sound like the typical "I sell the same thing multiple times" scam to you?
I'm sooo for country change. Is it that impossible to check your country by checking your credit card? >_>
So, for my PSP I'll either install custom firmware or change my country... Whatever comes out first.
@Conrad_max : Stalkers and harassers? How old are you? 5 years old? Ever played outside PSN in the real internet? Just learn to cope with it and don't be paranoid. You're not that special that everyone wants to "stalk" you or so fragile that you would die by being "harrased" (though I wonder what you classify as harrasment *rolls eyes*)
I have a Japanese account, but i live in canada. So when I play Black Ops, Treyarch decided to make it region based.. so I play with Japanese people and always have 2 bar connection.
I'm in a similar situation to people on here. I live in Australia and bought my PS3 here, but I'm actually English and for numerous reasons I predominantly buy my games from the UK. I got stuck on numerous occasions with games like COD and Uncharted where the DLC was region locked to the discs. I also wondered what I would do when/if I returned to the UK.
I came up with a quick fix. I haven't actually changed my profile country for my main PSN account, but a way to get a round it is to set up a second profile on your PS3 then create a new PSN account with that profile, using the country you wish. It means that when for example I buy a game from the UK and the DLC is region locked, I sign in using my second profile with the English PSN account, buy the DLC, download it and it saves it to the PS3. As you guys probably know, any PSN downloads are saved to the PS3 and are accessible for any profile on that PS3.
It solves the problem.
Hope it helps.
Using thread necromancy, I want to say that I totally agree with this. I mean it fucking DIGITAL content, not that the internet has a country or physical defined location. It can't be that hard to make your US content valid in a EU region as well.
