You cannot change your account's region. [change it from USA to Colombia] The one option you have is to create a new PSN account for Colombia. The reason one cannot change region is due to content regulation laws. For example, there are plenty of US PSN store content that is not available in the Colombia PSN store. These restrictions varies by country, market & lawyers :smileyfrustrated:


With that said, if you create a PSN Colombian account:

  • Trophies are tied to their PSN account. The trophies you've earned under your US account will stay with that account.
  • Content that is US Only will only work with the US PSN account.
  • All PSN DLC content that you have got under the US account can only be re-downloaded from that account.
