[PSN ACCOUNT] How to change the country in address details?

Hi,

 

Anyone knows how to change the country in your account details? I've recently moved to another country, but I cannot enter my new address properly, as the country still is set to my old country. Nowhere can I find how to change this. Any ideas, as I don't want to create a new account, just because Sony/Playstation blocked this feature? And creating a new one will make me lose all my friends and downloaded items, right?

Does anyone know if it is possible to delete an account to be able to re-use the same email address?

 

It happens that I created an account whilst in the UK via the website, recently I moved back to Portugal and have just bought a PS3 (I previously only owned a PSP).

 

I have nothing on my UK account, e.g. content/awards/etc! Would I be able to delete this account and then create a new Portuguese one with the same email?

 

Many thanks,

P.

 

P.S. oh and also re-use the username? :)

Accounts cannot be deleted, I guess you can change the email address of the old one and use it on a new account (but a dfifferent username)

Hey

 

Yea this problem happened to me last year.  I move from nz with the account set there to aus.  I couldnt change it to get any new content for games.  Rang sony up and in a matter of words told me to bad.  Had to create a new account so i now dont have all my trophies from my other games.  I am one of those players that was playing games for the achievements.  This annoyed the s*&t out of me.  Will try the downloadable content on my old account to see if it works.  But I have been tossing up for a couple of months now whether or not to just trade in the ps3 for an xbox.  I know next gen with stupid ***** like this I wont ever buy sony again.

Is this something Sony plan to change? Why would we be able to specify whatever region we want in a new profile but are unable to alter the region in our existing profile? The fact that the region you specify in your PSN account determins what servers you're matched up with in games makes this problem evermore pressing. I see this thread was created in 2008...

If Valve's Steam and XBLA are able to get over this obstacle and allow their customers to change their

 

country, I don't see why Sony should think they get exempt. I hope they allow this soon, that and they should 

 

those with multiple accounts to merge them into a single 'Master' account.

Use PSN cards from the same exact location as the faked addressed, You will have to buy via the web. DLC most also match the Games BD region location. 

Also be aware IP address filtered content won't work at all. Like Qriocity and PSN movie store, IPTV.. so on and so on. 

Games should work fine.

BD and DVD films can be region locked OUT unless you match the region code.

Hi,

I have same problem.

Can't register PS3 account in my country while PS3 here is officially being sold.... 

Doesn't that mean that as a consumer I'm paying full price but get only part of functions and services of the particular product??? And besides I wasn't informed by any means about these limitations before purchase.

May be it is worth of writing an official claim to SONY and local state consumer rights protection authority in order to resolve this issue???

I haven't really used either of these services, but XBox Live users are (or were) complaining about the exact same issue.   Pretty much saying exactly the same things - how pants it is that global companies are seemingly unable to accept the fact that their customers are also global these days.

Hi so I registered my PS3 in the UK, just bought the new Fifa 12 in the US were I now live. With Fifa 12 to play online you must redeem a code, I downloaded it but then when I go to play online it says the code redeemed doesn't match my PSN region so I can't play online......

 

I wouldn't care so much if being on the UK network at least allowed me to watch I Player? It lets me see the tv shows but when I go to view them they don't actually show.... so am I being punished twice? Surely it should be one or the other right, or is something else stopping me from viewing I player in the US? Is there anything I can do so I can watch it?

 

Thanks....

The BBC are blocking you from watching iplayer. To use this on a PC or console you need a tv license and live in the UK.

What if you change a country from one which has PSN to another which doesn't?

Sony can't handle that, too complicated for them.

My question isn´t really about the topic but it connects. I moved countries quite a lot in the last 7 years and am now living in Spain with a dutch psn account.  I know you can´t change the address, but about the psn card vouchers, if I buy one from a spanish game store, will it work for my dutch psn account. I know they have the same currency but do they differ because of regions like the address? Thanks.
