More Languages for PlayStation Network?

3 replies 97 views Edited Nov 30, 2012

This is nothing special of the sort, but I have a feeling that PSN needs to add additional languages for texts from around the world, such as:

 

English (South Africa, Australia and New Zealand)

Spanish (Spain, Peru, Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Puerto Rico)

Greek (Greece and Cyprus)

Arabic

Urdu (Pakistan)

German (Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Belgium)

Dutch (Belgium and Netherlands)

French (France and Belgium)

Ukranian

Bulgarian

Icelandic

Indonesian

Hindu (India)

Thai

Maltese

Croatian

 

Now, I understand they're quite complicated when it comes to adding up texts from different languages such as Greek, Arabic or Thai, although these features should be nice for the languages for your username profiles. Let me know what you think, even though this idea is very tricky to do so.

It isn't complicated, it's costly.

Figures... does it take years just to make different languages, even variant ones such as English (Australia, South Africa and New Zealand), along with Spanish (various countries in South America, including Mexico and Puerto Rico), then? Smiley Indifferent

No, but it does take money. SCE has budgets for everything they do. Even if it's a small project, there is still a buget. Maybe that's not on their to-do list at the moment. Not to mention, they would have to hire people to understand and code those different languages into the firmware. Bugets and time. Just not years ha
