    Sorry moderators, I'm sure this has been asked before, but I have searched extensively both within the avforums and google and have not yet found a concise answer. I have a UK PS3, and I have signed up for the UK PSN, do I need to create a new user and say that I am located in the USA?

    Is there a guide on how to do this somewhere?

    And is the Japan PSN also easyly accessed from a UK ps3?

    Thanks

    Sorry, also, is it possible to use my PC to download PSN games, and then use a USB memory key / CD to transfer them to the PS3's HDD?

    Thanks

    Yes set up a new account with a USA address and then once you log in with that account you will be able to access the US store. Same process for Japan & Hong Kong Stores. For address I just use the Hilton Hotels in New York, Japan and Hong Kong:thumbsup:

    You can't download them to your PC then transfer them.

    That is correct.

    There used to be an URL prior to the PS3s release where you could do exactly that - but that's no longer available.
