I have created this topic hoping that Sony will see it.
We, Playstation 3 (PS3) and Playstation Portable (PSP) owners from the Philippines and all other countries that are not supported, are faced with a dilemma concerning the Playstation Store/Network. Even though the Playstation Store is ripe with lots of games, we, unsupported PS3 and PSP owners, are left unable to buy these games.
I, and many other gamers, believe that this move by Sony does not benefit them or their consumers. By leaving potential markets unsupported, Sony is missing out on a lot of possible customers willing to spend money on the Playstation Store.
By supporting the Philippines, and other unsupported countries, Sony will expand its reaches and will be able to reap more profit. I believe it won't even cost them anything since countries, such as the Philippines, can just join the servers of their respective continent such as the Hongkong/Asian Playstation Network/Store.
If ever there is a reason behind Sony not supporting our countries, we would be very grateful if this would be publicly revealed as to ease confusion on why our country is not on the list of supported countries.
Your support will be met with utmost gratitude.

I've also posted this on GameFaqs and I'm very happy that there are people who support us even if they're not Filipinos.

Thanks for all the support
If you visit any forums, especially Filipino Gaming forums, please tell them about this topic.
Again, thank you for all the support.
We're not even asking for a dedicated PSN store/server.
We're just asking Sony to let us use our credit cards on the (Asian) PSN store. It's the ASIAN PSN Store after all and the last time I checked, the Philippines is IN ASIA whether it's a Third World Country or not.
We don't need some grand "You're now supported" party like the ones they did in other countries.
Just do what Microsoft did (No, I'm not comparing the two or pitting them against each other). They supported the Philippines even if it's a small market for them (during the time they supported us, they had only sold 2000 Xbox 360s).
They just had some manager announce that they are now marketing the console in the country and supported them in their online service.
