Request from the Bulgarian Playstation users

364 Replies 12,256 Views Created 17-12-2008
Dear Sirs,

We are PlayStation® users from Bulgaria, a member state of the European Union. We want to express our disappointment in that we do not have the right to use the PlayStation®Store service. Moreover, your service does not accept credit cards issued by Bulgarian banks. If that was not enough, recently we received another shock - we are not granted access to PlayStation®Home with our Bulgarian accounts. Of course, we can create new fake accounts in a different region with fake user data to login into Home, but that way we will not be able to use the information kept in our true, Bulgarian accounts. We do not want to change our accounts or permanently jump to fake accounts created for another region. All we want are the following simple services: 1) a chance to buy games and add-ons from the PlayStation®Store, and 2) Home and other PlayStation services extended to Bulgarian accounts.
We will gladly accept store features even if they are not translated to our native language. We know that we are a small market, but all we are asking for is equal treatment. We are PlayStation users and fans and we want to have the chance to use your services like everyone else.
We hope you will consider our request!

They have your money, they do not care. Take back your PS3. You have a 2 year gaurantee from the retailor if you live in the EU. Its a feature/benefit you can't use, so take/send it back. Get more of your fellow countrymen to band together to demand Sony to listen. Write to your MEP, Im sure they'd be interested why Sony are boycotting Bulgaria. Local/national papers??? The only other option is don't buy Sony or *****.... ....either way I'll support your cause!

 

but couldnt that swing the other way with sony thinking oh they dont want the PS3 there so no point in putting the psn there

 

but you all have to remember that theres a hell of a lot of legal hoops sony are made to jump through to get the psn to you but i bet there working on getting it there

WE WANT THE SAME THING HERE AT SERBIA, but it looks like nobody from Sony is reading this...

 

Croatia got it's own PS Store so I don't see the reason why wouldn't Serbia and Bulgaria have one too!?

Ok, quick question! We don't have a Playstation Store, in that case - how to experience the welcome back program, Sony? Or the countries without PS Store are second hand people? HUH? What a joke!

Dear Sirs,

 

I am also a Bulgarian user that has been a faithful  SONY customer through out the years, I am a SONY fan and have most of your products starting from the TV , sound system ,laptop, camera,  PSP, PS2, PS3 I mean c'mon even my MP3 player has your brand on it. But enough  about this, I would like state my support to the cause of the Bulgarian PS3 users. It's been five years since the PS3 has launched and till now most of the PSN features dont  work  with Bulgarian accounts( PS HOME,  PS STORE) except ONLINE Play (thank GOD this works). I strongly agree with what ToolShiro sad about this lets say shortage of PSN functions -  

We are PlayStation users and fans and we want to have the chance to use your services like everyone else.

I hope that You will consider our request.

Sincerely

Mihail

I just bought SpaceMarine and I am not allowed to access lv6+ on the online mode because, although I have paid for my activation code (that comes with the game manual)  I cannot open the store and register it. I have paid for this game and it's online functions. Why am I not allowed to get what I paid for?

Give us what we deserve dudes. We are in the stupid EU and we are no less your customers than the people in Germany, UK, France, Greece and the other countries.

Its been 3 years??

 

Its not enough that our local game retailers rip us of so badly that i'm forced to import my games form the UK (even with the outrageous shipping fee its still a better deal than what we get in our country)

 

So I'm guessing those with no access to the playstation store won't be eligible for the Welcome back program?

 

I think I'm done with Sony.

Hi everyone, I have somehow good news for you:

 

I have made some inquiries (contacted the PSN Support Team, or wahtever it's called; PlayStation Bulgaria Support) and I have received some answers.

 

Here's the official Bulgarian answer I received, you can read a translation of it after the bulgarian version:



 

Здравейте,

 

Благодарим ви за това писмо.

Работи се по въвеждането на описаните услуги за територията на България, но на този етап не могат да се дадат конкретни срокове.

 

Поздрави, PlayStation team

 

Translaion:


Hello,

Thank you for your letter.

At the moment it is being worked on the introduction of these services in Bulgaria, but at this stage we can't provide any specific deadlines.

Драги колеги,

На тия от Сони им дреме на дядовия. Три години вопли по въпроса, и к'во ...?

Сони българия (вносител и сервиз на продуктите на Sony) няма никакви права по въпроса с PS Store.

Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) са като бащата на Иванчо, когото последния цитирал "Тате рече, че ще ми купи велосипед, ама друг път". Не се хабете повече, че сигурно много ги кефите.

Здравейте отново,

ще допълня относно //bg.playstation.com - погледнете датата на "Добре дошли в PLAYSTATION Store" - 22 08 2007!  Който може да смята, ще си направи изводите. На Курльовците хич не им пука - дори за "имиджа" им в България.

Hi.

 

Seeing is believing. Hopefully the PSStore will be available soon with all payment options - pre-paid cards, bulgarian credit cards.

The "funny" thing is I can't register here with my Bulgarian PS account. I can't even register to "My Killzone" section at killzone.com. I used to, but no more. I can't register with my BG account in any EA game, e.g. Battlefield 3, Bad Company, etc.

Please do fix this, do provide PS Store and PS Plus for Bulgarian users.

 

And yes - we may be a small market, but our children love to play too. Do consider translating kids' games in Bulgarian. I'm sure you can even find volunteers for the job. It wоn't cost you. Provide the developers means to have any sort of volunteer support for translation and embedded in the games. Wiki can do it. Sony cannot?

 

 Wishing you and all PS gamers arround the globe all the best.

Никола
