1. I have a PSN account that belongs to region X.
  2. It has a PS+ subscription.
  3. I have acquired many games throughout the years; some are PS+ free games, some are digital medias bought from PS Store.
  4. I'm moving to region Y.

Question: will I be able to play all of them normally on while I'm in region Y, specially those free PS+?

In other words, will I be able to keep using the same PSN and PS+ accounts and get access to my games in the library?

PS: I believe it is not possible to change country of a PSN account, isn't that so?


You do not require a region Y account to use your region X content in region Y.

You can continue to purchase and play on your region X account from region Y with no problems and as long as you maintain a valid payment method for region X. I know this because I am doing it and have been for many years.

If you want to purchase content that is specific for region Y you will have to create a region Y account in order to access the local store.

You will also need to be cautious with DLC, if you buy a physical copy of a game in region Y it may not be compatible with DLC downloaded from the region X store. The physical copy of the game will work with your region X account just fine.

So you may want to create a region Y account for the specific reasons above but you do not need to have one, all your existing content will still be accessible.

You will continue having the games, being able to play them, but in order to get Y country new games, you will need a Y country account, not all the games are in the same countries.

  • Basically, in order to keep my old games AND buy new ones, I would have to create a new account AND keep the old one? – lucas.mdo Jun 6 '16 at 14:11
  • Thats right. U can have more than 1 acc in a ps – kek Jun 6 '16 at 14:18
  • Yep, I know that, but it seems to me that would need 2 accs, both of them having a PS+, which would be a waste imo – lucas.mdo Jun 6 '16 at 17:14
  • Just keep the original account. The only trick will be you have to change to paying for games and your subscription via pre-paid cards. – Bryan C. Jun 10 '16 at 20:27
  • The downvoter, if you dont post a comment saying the aswer is bad, I can't correct it. Plus as @colin sayed, you need an acc on the new region to purchase that region new games so, manifest oh downvoter! – kek Oct 17 '16 at 7:15
