PS Store Region Availability

6 replies 88 views Edited Dec 17, 2012

Why is it that Sony keeps each of the regions of it's store separate? Is it based on game licenses or focus groups in each region?

Because the licenses for each game are different some might and probably don't allow distribution of certain games(or certain versions of games) to be distributed outside of each region where a license exists for it. 

Also, because they can.

That made no coherent sense what so ever.

It made perfect sense. It's technically only missing one word, which I placed in his post.

Sorry about that. It was late when I posted this so my brain wasn't helping me with coherence.

Your post made sense, we all skip a word or two even at our prime time; so don't sweat it. And yeah, it's true, the UK store has some pretty sweet prices overall even after you make the conversion between pounds and USD~.
