User Gennosuke asked on today’s EU store post whether or not he’ll be able to play online in Romania. Fred Dutton answered apologetically.

“Unfortunately at this time gamers in countries which do not have a Store cannot access online multi-player features. However, we are considering every measure to offer PlayStation Store services to these territories as soon as possible. To clarify, the affected territories are: Bahrain, Lebanon, Romania, Oman, Slovakia, Malta, Cyprus and Iceland.”

As this is the EU-specific store, there’s likely to be other areas where this is an issue.

Been this way for the xb360 and possibly the ps3 for different countries since they're releases. So no real surprises here. However I'm glad to here Sony is at least thinking about taking care of those countries.

I am surprised to see that Israel does have a psn store :wtf:
How so? It's quite large for a country and I'd imagine western type of lifestyle (read: console gaming) is quite popular.

As for the news, this is kinda.. Well.. Odd. At least VPNs are available to all so routing traffic should make it possible to access online (that is, if people bother).

not really large for a country... you can cross it from the northmost part to the southmost in about 8 hours with a car but yes for western lifestyle...

in terms of gaming, sony is popular for based people while the xbox is popular for people that don't want to pay for games... nintendo is non existent

As opposed to most other European countries or if you break it down states in the US?

I am more surprised Iceland is not there -- they have a fair tech industry including quite serious web/server/hosting stuff.

I'm surprised Sony has PSN over here(while Nintendo and Microsoft don't give sh*t about us), so it looks like I won't be having problems playing online. :yayps3:
