(Need help) PS4 bought from China is region locked
« on: December 13, 2017, 07:25:19 am »
Hi guys,

I recently bought a PS4 from China by considering all consoles are region free. System language is English. Also disk games are playing without any hesitate. But when trying to create a PSN, it offers only chinese region with their language.

I highly need to enjoy PSN contents :( Please advise if there is anyway to remove this regional lock and create a US or Singapore account.

#PS4 500GB Slim CUH2108A

Sony's logic: "stay in China or dump your console in trash can. Chan Chun Chee Chun!"

that must be such a pain, specially when looking at those "Chinese" letters. hope you get it resolved soon.

Most of online articles mentioned that it is not possible to log into other PSN accounts which is created online if the region is not Chinese.

However I will give it a try tonight. :)
