[ Edited ]
5 replies 149 views Edited Apr 5, 2014

Really can't work this one out, last month I seen an advertisement for the games coming march, seen one I want yet couldn't find it on my store. Again Aprils month I seen a game I've wanted for ages and used to play as a kid for ps3, had to get it back down out the attic only to find it again not there and some pretty crap games. Anyway after googling it found US and Europe have different free games available??????? Really don't understand why you wouldn't just keep them the same so it's fair all round for.

 

Really is frustrating and poor from playstation.

They are two different stores with different publisher deals. That's just the way it is. And I would suggest trying to ignore the EU games list as they are usually better. Either that or make an EU plus account yourself. This is possible if you buy a plus card from a European online retailer like amazon.co.Uk.

There are factors that you will not understand, that explains why the PS Stores are different from region to region.

To be fair..... the EU region gets screwed pretty hard as it is with game prices. 

I'm happy with everything thats been given for free through Plus. Why? BECAUSE ITS FREE.

If you want what the EU Store gets.... make an EU account and buy a Plus subscription from that store.

No it's the games US gets I want, it's just annoying tbh, would be easily enough for them just to make same games available for us and eu makes a lot more sense, like they do for the ps4 games so far

They have a lot less choice when it comes to PS4. I would think that most of the games that are offered free from PS+ have pretty well been exhausted as far as sales go. Maybe, the difference in free + games between NA/EU has something to do with sales in the respective continents.

The EU and North American PSN Store's are managed differently so content added will be placed at different dates, prices will be different due to currency and licencing for each regions free PS Plus content is different as well due to separate management.

Since the licencing in each region is also different, they unfortunately can't keep content similar in each regions PSN store.
