Disguise your Playstation 3 and get the content that you deserve!

We came across an interesting piece of information today. Apparently it is possible to create foreign accounts on your PS3 which thereby allow you to download content previously unavailable to you. Keep in mind we have not tested this, however if you would like to understand how it is done then keep reading … otherwise look away.


Follow the directions below:

1) First create a new user for your PS3.

2) Sign Up for the Playstation Network.

3) Select Hong Kong as your Country/Region. (You can select ANY region as long as you can provide a real address.)

4) Make sure your language is set to English.

5) Select Master Account.

6) Create an e-mail account for your new PSN ID. If you have another e-mail address you can use just use it.. a friends, a parents, or a girlfriends etc. Otherwise visit any of these free e-mail websites: Gmail, Lycos, Mail.com, Hotmail, and AOL. Once you’ve created an account simply use the e-mail address in your registration.

7) Create an online ID.

8) Enter a name, it’s up to you how to play this one.

9) Next you’ll need to provide a valid address for the region. Lets say you pick Hong Kong as my new homeland. Visit Frommers To view links in this forum your post count must be 1 or greater. Your post count is 0 momentarily. and click on any of the restaurants names. Once you do this you’ll have a valid address for your new account so enter it!

That’s it, congratulations you’ve now successfully created a foreign region PSN account for your PS3! Enjoy the spoils!

  1. If something looks like its too good to be true, it usually is. I tried this and, of course it didnt work. Dont waste your time with this load of BS guys.

  2. What exactly are the benefits to doing this? Aside from the fact that you can obtain software available only to those specific regions, what software would you want(give me an example of something one would want from another region)?

    • Some regions have content blocked , such as Malaysia (trying to fight this currently), so by making an account under another region the blocked content is then unlocked. In addition, you can use USA voucher codes received with new games (since the ps3 games sold are majorly over priced and some out dated with no decline in price due to the Malaysian economy). So if you wanted to use USA games and still be able to access the vouchers provided in those games, without spending overly outrageous prices on the imported copies, then disguising your PS3 for another accessible region is the way to go.

    If something looks like its too good to be true, it usually is. I tried this and, of course it didnt work. Dont waste your time with this load of BS guys.” – Dude it does work, i just added japan and usa on my ps3 to donwload content and demos that hasn’t come out yet on my country(portugal) no bs there m8.

  4. Is this legit, or a scam? I wouldn’t mind doing the process, but I don’t want to fuck up my Playstation 3 by doing it.

  5. its not going to fuck up your ps3 the only thing i can see is that sonys not going to like it they dont want you getting content from other regions, i ve down loaded some free content worked fine

  6. This does work. I have a UK ps3 with a USA account set up aswell under a second user. The only thing is that you can only download the free content which in most cases comes to the uk a few weeks/months later. If people continue to do this then the uk content will become lesser as it will look like no-one is downloading it. The only bummer is that the USA or JAPANEse content that you have to pay for you can never get to unless you have an address in the repective country as you have to have a credit card in the country’s origin.

  7. i need UK adress ,, and postal code !!

    I Can’t Buy anything !!

    I Need a Vaild Adress & Postal Code !!

    Help Me As Fast As You Can ,,

  8. The solution is to use Playstation Network Gift Cards. You use them to add credit to your Playstation wallet – no US credit card needed. You can buy them online at CardReach – http//www.cardreach.com – they sell a bunch of other gift cards as well.

  9. hay ive made an american account my ps3 is pal uk can i download all content or do i need to tred carefully i dont want to break what is now my third console also how easy is it to make a japanese account as i cant read japanese lol
