    I have easily created an account for the UK. I remember a PS3 mag that had how you add money & create online accounts for each region of the network, but I think I must have thrown it away and now cannot remember how.

    Is there a guide somewhere that tells you how to do this step by step, like a "For dummies" version, that anyone can follow?

    You can create other regional accounts to download free content. However registering credit cards and adding funds in order to purchase premium content isn't really possible anymore as the loop holes have been closed down. I am pretty sure that you cannot do it on the Japanese or HK stores anymore and on the US one the only cards that may still work are Mastercards but even those may not now.

    Setting up other regional accounts is the same as making a UK account. You just need to create a new username and PSN ID but using a different email and an address local to that region.

    There are already a number of threads dealing with this topic like these ...
