Sony confirms new PlayStation Store won't be region locked

400°
334w ago - SCEA has confirmed that there will be no changes to the PlayStation Store as part of its revamp in relation to region locking.

So just like before, users with a number of accounts relating to different regions will not be locked out of those PlayStation stores.

To quote: With the new PlayStation Store moving to a native XMB application and away from a web-based system, many have questioned if Sony would take the opportunity to region lock the store. So we passed along the question.

The Official answer, thankfully, is no. Our friendly SCEA rep "confirmed that no changes to the store will be made as part of this revamp relating to region locking".

So like before, those users with multiple master accounts corresponding to different regions will indeed not be locked out of those PlayStation Stores.

335w ago - Update: Sony has officially confirmed that the new PlayStation Store interface will also be coming to North America in mid-April.

To quote: Customers will be able to access, browse, shop and download content as usual prior to the store's re-opening. However, no additional downloadable content will be posted prior to then, including this Thursday, April 3rd, and next Thursday, April 10th.

Regularly scheduled content updates will resume with the Store's re-opening, at which time additional games and game-related items will be added, including the downloadable version of the highly-anticipated exclusive PS3 title Gran Turismo 5 Prologue.

Sony has released 3 sample images of the new design for the PlayStation store and said that "Content will be suspended for two weeks while the improvements are carried out but users can look forward to a special update in mid-April."

Sony has also reportedly told the media that the PlayStation Store face lift on PS3 will no longer use the PS3 Web browser, and will require new firmware upgrade version 2.30. The facelift is said to be much faster and cache all images correctly.

Sony has yet to confirm the facelift release...

335w ago - The official UK PlayStation Web site has issued a notice warning users that a security flaw was found in the PlayStation Store for PC, allowing unauthorized individuals to possibly gain access to personal information.

While the security issue has since been rectified, a small percentage of users may have had their account compromised.

Sony is directly contacting individuals that may have been affected by the incident and is urging all users to log-in to the service. If your pre-set password works, then your PSN account was not compromised.

To quote: Notice to PLAYSTATION Network Users

We have found out that there has been a possibility of unauthorized access to personal information on the PLAYSTATION Store through PCs, a content download service of the PLAYSTATION Network.
