    This thread is an easy step-by-step on how to do so providing resources to make things easier.


    Follow the directions below:

    1. First create a new user for your PS3.

    2. Sign Up for the Playstation Network.

    3. Select Hong Kong as your Country/Region. (You can select ANY region as long as you can provide a real address.)

    4. Make sure your language is set to English.

    5. Select Master Account.

    6. Create an e-mail account for your new PSN ID. If you have another e-mail address you can use just use it.. a friends, a parents, or a girlfriends etc. Otherwise visit any of the free e-mail websites below:

    * Gmail - http://www.google.com/mail/help/promo1.html
    * lycos - http://mail.lycos.com/lycos/Index.lycos
    * mail.com - http://www.mail.com
    * hotmail - http://www.hotmail.msn.com
    * AOL - http://free.aol.com/thenewaol/email.adp


    Once you've created an account simply use the e-mail address in your registration.

    7. Create an online ID.

    8. Enter a name, it's up to you how to play this one.

    9. Next you'll need to provide a valid address for the region. Lets say you pick Hong Kong as my new homeland. Visit Frommers here ( http://www.frommers.com/destinations...78_inddin.html) and click on any of the restaurants names. Once you do this you'll have a valid address for your new account so enter it!

    That's it, congratulations you've now successfully created a foreign region PSN account for your PS3! Enjoy the spoils!


    Some of the things currently available in the HK region not found in the U.S. are:

    * Ridge Racer 7 Demo
