[Answered] A Question Regarding System Country
I bought this PS3 a bout a year ago "it's the one that comes with 80GB HD and 4 USB's" from Saudi Arabia.
i thought somthing was missing and couldnt point out what. after the 3 firmware update i figured out what was the missing thing. my Playstation Store got no video, music or movies support.
I'm now in the US and I've updated my PS3 firmware recently "although i dont think it would matter which country i updated from" and every time i try to access the PS Store from the music or video section it says that it's not supported in your country or location.
so the big question is. what can i do to have a normal PS Store and get around this problem?!
thank you so far for reading and even trying to help.

As terrible as it sounds - sell the PS3. Basically in a signed, so far unchangeable area, there is what is called the console ID. It is a 2 digit value which delineates what region the system is. By changing that - you would be able to do more, however nobody (aside from sony) is able to make that change - so your best bet is to just sell the PS3 and buy a new one.
