I can play games online but cant join game invites and friends cant join mine we can talk in chat room but cant play online together arhhhhhhhhhh why sony why why why?????

 

Ps does lag a bit sometimes will getting a saudi account speed this up or does it make no difference??

Because they're cheap.

 

Also, you probably can't game with them due to IP/country restrictions or something. I'm just taking a shot in the dark.

I don't imagine there's any restrictions in place on your new county, the only reason this could be is a difference in network environment.

 

Perform some tests. One test your playstation, let us know what nat type you are. You need to be either nat type 2 or 1. If you're 3, there's your problem. You can also be a 'strict' nat type 2, so that can be a problem also.

 

Also test your bandwidth and line quality. Use Speedtest.net and pingtest.net to test these. Post the results of those 3 (tests) the playstation one & speed/pingtest.net if you want me to tell you what the tests mean / help you further.
