How To Change PSN Region On PlayStation?

PlayStation does not restrict apps/games downloads by IP address and only does so by the PSN store region you’re trying to access.

Playstation ties your PlayStation Network (PSN) store region to your PSN ID.

What this means is you can be physically located anywhere around the world and as long as your PSN store region is set to the location the geographically restricted apps/games are available, you can download it without any issues.

To change your PSN store region, you’ll need to create a new ID that is tied to that particular region.

For example, if you need to access apps or games from the United Kingdom PSN store, you’ll need to create a new PSN ID that is registered to the UK PSN store.
