Sony know we do this and the obviously have no problem with it. I remember first downloading the Drakes Fortune demo off the US store and it didn't work on anything but US machines.
Now Sony could of easily turned around and told people to wait until it was released in their territory but they didn't, they updated the demo so it worked every where.

Don't think i ever said thanks for that, so thanks Sony.

i agree this is good news BUT couldnt this cause problems with items such as Video/films as some countries get certain films before others? etc

I hope one day we wont have the need for multiple accounts.

Someone asked something along those lines and here was the answer:

"Due to regional licensing, legal logistics, language, and localization, a true “global Store” isn’t logistically possible.

However, that isn’t to say that games found in one region won’t make their way to others. Titles such as PixelJunkMonsters is a great example of a title from one region making its way to all of the others.
Hope this answered your question!"

So yeah for the foreseeable future, multiple accounts are needed. But hell at least it's allowed!!
