Difference between PS+ Aus Vs other versions

#1 Posted by mrfizzy (1512 posts) -

Hey All,

So a few days ago I signed up for a three month PS+ membership. I think it quite a cool idea and I'm excited to see what games I get to play even tho there are none I'm really interested in at the moment.

I do have one question tho and that is how does the games selection differ between my service (Australia) and others. Does each region get its own set of games each month or is it more or less uniform across all areas? Also do all the games get updated on the first of each month or something or are they added as the month goes by?

Thanks!

Australia is basically the same as EU. Maybe a few differences every now and then, but in general AU PSN=EU PSN.

Yeah, Aus is managed by Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, so you get the same stuff for Plus. The main difference is that occasionally there will be games not published there due to the OFLC ratings (if it's too violent it may be rejected, if it's low budget they may not want to pay for a rating), and you end up with a substitute title instead.

Someone will have to confirm this, but I'm pretty sure you can create a US and Japanese account and get access to each regions PS+ games.

Yeah, this is true, but you'll have to use the points cards to buy money since you can't use your own credit card.

Is that for all PSN content, or just PS+? Cause I was thinking of creating a US account to buy Dyad.

All PSN content. Just make sure you get the right card for the right country and enter the code. It puts money into your wallet and you can use that for anyting on the PSN store.

Australia. Just checked and it's not on there.

@EVO: Yeah, the store update listed it as not available in Australia. Guess the developer didn't get an OFLC rating.

Are you sure this is accurate? I'm pretty sure I was able to buy content from the NA PlayStation store some four years ago using a credit card that wasn't tied to an American account.

Not credit card, as i said in the first reply that doesn't work. You need to buy those prepaid PSN cards and enter the code into the PSN store. It's what i've been doing with my Vita, since the AU Vita PSN is pretty crappy.
