Quick Question Regarding Regions

4 replies 19 views Edited Jun 18, 2012

Just wanna ask guys, I have a PSN card for an EU account (20 Euro), and I'm part of the South African region. If I buy DLC with the EU account, will it work with any of the games from my region code? From what I understand, SA is classified as part of Region 2, right? So, then, do we have the same region codes on games as EU?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the reply.

Another question though - if there is no indication on the Store as to which region codes the DLC will work with, does it mean it will work with any part of EU? For example, the DLC I want to buy has no code warning - so can I use it on any EU copy of the game?

Even though South Africa & the UK/EU may come under Region 2, because you have to choose your country/region from a list I'm not sure the DLC is interchangeable between the two.

Like I say I could well be wrong so I'd be curious to see what others have to say about this too.

The store you're accessing won't show a region, it assumes you know which store you're using & is the one for your home country/region.

All I can say is that DLC is not region-free & any DLC purchased has to be from the same region/country as the original game.

Yeah, but that's the thing. All other content from the EU store is exactly the same as my own (region codes required, etc.), so I'm assuming both Stores get the exact same content. Can anyone prove this?
