129w ago - Today The Anonymous Data Protection Officers have released PSN AnonReg 1.0, which allows PS3 users to anonymously register on PlayStation Network making account creation in other regions simpler and the registration process faster.
To quote: This application was written by the intention to disclose security issues in the PlayStation Network. It is meant to be used as private investigation only.
Please keep in mind that European law allows to reverse and analyze protocols and applications by the intention to enhance user security.
The registration will create a valid PlayStation Network account for you.
Unlike the original PSN registration, this application protects you and your personal data.
It strips sensitive information which is normally sent to and saved by the PlayStation Network, like unique console ID's etc.
Be aware, that the PlayStation Network registration has some limitations for the registration.
1) Your password has to contain at least:
• 8 characters
• 1 upper letter
• 1 lower letter
• 1 number
2) Your nickname does not exist already.
3) Your e-mail is not registered already.
This application will not check if you follow those limitations.
If you do not follow them, the registration will fail!

Still - I see no benefit over creating it direclty on the web - maybe apart of Asian region. Also - using this tool it seems to not ask you for the email / dob / etc. so you'd be unable to recover the lost password and so on ...
