Is it ok for Sony that foreigners create PSN US account

6 replies 323 views Edited Apr 25, 2014

It's obvious many people do this because the content of these stores is way less that the one at the US store. 

 

I've always wondered if Sony is ok with this? Can someone from Sony speak up in this topic?

SONY generally never reads posts on these boards, much less respond to them.

 

Yes, it happens.  Not supposed to, but why does it bother you so much?

Hey there. 

 

We always recommend you make accounts based on your actual location. This is so you can get the best support available.

I believe that sony is ok, but if you have a valid adress of someone you know that lives in us, it would be better... It doesn't makes sense, if you think about all the people that moved away from the USA....i don't think there is a risk of getting banned....

Providing a false address in setting up a PSN account is against Sony's terms and conditions. That's all you need to know.
