PlayStation Plus Region Pass

25 replies 431 views Edited Feb 19, 2013

OK now that I have your attention, I just want to get feedback from the Home community about something.

 

Would you be willing to pay an extra $50 on top of PS+  to buy an all region pass,  you would be able to use that account to go to different regions of Home and buy some of their exclusive content or win their exclusive prizes? And of course vice versa for other regions like Japan and UK.

 

Do you think it would do away with hacking?

No. I only care about my region.

Hacking would be at an all time high.

Even if I spoke Japanese I still wouldn't pay for it.

$50 dollars is a bit much to pay for stuff in other regions of HOME. Also Sony might not have the rights to sell every thing in HOME in every country in the world. So a PS+ region pass might not be legally possible at any price.

That's a very interesting idea, but the price to do so would'nt be very fair.

We pay $50 for Playstation plus and recieve additional deals, free items and advantages on everything sony related. To pay an additional $50 just for Playstation Home would be rediculous.

It would perhaps be a nice feature included in ps plus, but there are many issues resulting the regional server differences that could never allow region travelling on Home with just one account possable.

There should be Region-free areas that allow all home-users to enter regardless of their location. Of course  you wouldnt be able to buy things in those areas, but just being able to freely talk to other users in different areas would be cool.

 

It should also be free.

Thank you all for your responses.

But wasn't the closed Beta all regions accessible, so it could be possible.

Paying for it, I would have to disagree.

Users can go make a free PSN account in another region, then play them servers just fine. If they ever came out with a region pass, it shouldn't ever come with a price tag.

The only thing I could see charging for is content in a regional store.

What if you could transfer compatible items from U.S. to JP?
