Ok so, USA PSN store has WAY cheaper games than EU PSN, i was wondering if i made an USA account, could i use my credit card on it (UK, GPB)? do i need a fake USA address to register?

How much cheaper are the games on USA sony store? ones i am interested in are Lumines at the moment, as it is 30£ here, i don't see it worth more than 15£ really as it isn't much different from PSP version, but of course, sony being sony don't allow me to play PSP version on vita, and my psp is very much busted. So how much is lumines on USA PSN?

Also wipeout? would be interested in F1 as well for the right price...

Psp games? Cladun x2 (15.99£) was awesome would be nice to play it again, Patapon games?(Patapon 1/2 6.99£ each, Patapon 3 16.99£) thats all that i can see that i like on PSN... man there sure aren't a lot of PSP games on there...

Just wondering if its worth the trouble getting an USA account, plus if i'd need to source gift cards to buy games or w/e... it would be quite a pain the in the...

Stop trying to ruin our economy cheap ass suck it up and pay what you have to pay for the game..
Lol. The prices are way to high in Australia so I went and joined the Japanese PSN and never turned back, don't listen to people who want you to waste alot of money where you can find a bargain.

Make a fake address if you want and get an American credit card or PSN recharge card and buy your games from the US PSN to your hearts content

You won't be able to register outside country credit card on PSN, they have a AVS system in place and AVS won't work outside of the PSN's country.

Or the Euro prices on the EU PSN stores..

And that doesn't only go for the PSN store but almost anything tech-related you can buy, just like Vita itself costs $249/299 in the US which would be 189/227 € but instead it costs 249/299 € (which is $328/394) - so I can very much understand why someone would like to buy at least games a little cheaper.

Setting up an US account is easy but you need an US address. Your UK credit card won't work on the PSN store but you can buy PSN store codes from bestbuy.com (there's a lot of UK based shops, but they are far more pricey, $50 are around £32, most UK shops sell them for £37+) but you HAVE to pay via credit card, as non-US paypal accounts won't work there. You can find the online codes here: http://www.bestbuy.c...cat225000050010 (the first three are physical cards, the last two are the digital codes and the Playstation plus codes are digital as well - you get them quite fast, but be aware that the US is 6-9 hours behind the UK, so if you order something in the morning it will probably take until afternoon for the code to arrive! ^^)

Not as bad as AU dude. In the US it was $250/$300 USD which should be around $245/$295 AUD but here it costs $350/$450 AUD which would probably be around $355/$455 USD so sorry but we have it way worse than you dude, if it was cheap as it was in the UK then I would love to be buying from my own country also do you know where one can buy online Japanese PSN recharge cards?

Eww.. sucks even more, you're right. But I think Euro prices are already bad enough, they should definitely do something about this.. I mean... everything you can get over here has the same price tag just with $ in front of the number instead of € at the end.. like, you pay 900€ (ca 1120 AUD) and $900 (ca 850 AUD / 680€) in the US. At least my aunt lives over there, so whenever she gets over here I make some orders to her home before she leaves, so she can take all the stuff over here for me.. XD

Japanese PSN codes are pricey, but there's a few sites who sell them:

http://cardscodes.com/Japan-k75-0-2-default.html (By far the cheapest of the bunch, site belongs to Gameconnect LLC, who seem to be legit - at least they refund you if something goes wrong [I tried ordering a code last week, but they refused my payment since I couldn't use my paypal account and tried paying without signing up, but they do only accept payment from registered paypal users])
http://www.play-asia.com/PlayStation_Network_Card_Ticket_3000_YEN_for_Japanese_network_on/paOS-13-71-zu-49-en-70-3xk5.html
http://nihongoperapera.com/store/buy-japanese-psn-cards.html

Hope these help.. :)

I purchased a PSOne classic game Resident Evil 2 on my PS3 a long time ago. If I use the same PSN account on my vita will the download of Res Evil 2 be free for my Vita or must I pay again?

Free.

Here is the best part, you can transfer save file in between so you can play at home and pick up where you left off while on the go. If you have PS+ subscription it'll upload save file online. If not simply transfer it to/from PS3 using USB cable.
