How to buy games on the US PSN Store in the UK - and for cheaper

16BitKings - "Being a member of the United Kingdom means that I am a subject of her majesty and frequently drown my sorrows with tea and crumpets, but more importantly, I am forced to pay extortionate prices for games on the PSN store. But there is a method in which UK PS4 owners are able to buy the full digital games from the US store and play them on their UK account!"

What I hate about the PS1 classics on the store is that you wait for years and years for games like Resident Evil 2/3 or Spyro the Dragon but when they finally come they are the American versions of the game. I mean what the hell...I could of just set up an account to download the stuff off the American store.

Ha funny thing is I often purchase games from Shopto and even with the conversion rate form pounds to dollars and shipping international I still save $$$.

UK games on Retail always sell for much cheaper than the RRP for instance call of duty ghosts should have been £49 but most shops sold the old gen (xbox360/ps3) version for around £40 and the next gen versions RRP was £55 but again shops all over sold them for cheaper. I picked it up for xbox one version of ghosts for £42, if I wanted to buy this digital the price on the xbox store is £55 :| It makes buying digital almost worthless since u have no resell value and are paying much much more for the games. If it was the same price I would buy them as digital since I hardly sell my games anyway and do love the idea of not having to change disks all the time, but until Microsoft and sony take a note out of Steams book and realise that digital copies should be cheaper than a physical copy then console digital is not a viable option for me right now.

what about updates for region issues?
i imagine this is illegal?

You need a postal address to sign up for PSN don't you? It use to be like that years ago at least. I would assume using someone else's postal address is illegal.

It is illegal and even says somewhere in the terms of service that your not allowed to do this...

All that being said I still do this myself lmao

However it is kind of scary knowing that at anytime they could probe deny me access to all of the content i've purchased on my US account /:
