(This post was also accidentally posted under the general PS3 support forum, therefore I'm reposting it here.)
I finally bought my first PS3 console yesterday (30th April 2013), mainly because I wanted to play Dust 514. Please bear in mind that this is the first console I've ever owned / used, so I really have no idea what I'm doing.
Now, Dust 514 is as you may know a free game, downloadable for the PS3. From what I understand, you have to download it through the PlayStation Store. However, whenever I try to access the store, it tells me that "This service is not available for your country/region".
I've checked around, and it should be. My country/region is Iceland, and since CCP, the manufacturer / publisher of Dust 514 is an Icelandic company, this doesn't quite make sense to me.
I've tried logging in to my PSN account on the games official website, www.dust514.com, as well. I still get the message about the service not being available for my country.
As far as I can tell, the PSN is online, the store doesn't have any maintenance scheduled or anything like that, so I'm all out of ideas.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
What the message is stating is that there is no Playstation Store for Iceland. Some countries that the Playstation Network is offered in, do not have the Playstation Store; usually for legal reasons. Many countries do not have the Playstation Network offered at all. The fact that there is a company that developed a PS3 game based in Iceland, does not by any means guarantee that the Playstation Store will be available in that country. The two have nothing to do with each other.
