Currency hardly makes a difference with internet based transactions especially when you already have the sales and distribution mechanisms in place being the PSN.
This has nothing to do with "the countries" and everything to do with Sony and the publishers decisions of how to release.
Regards the currency comment - no, Australia is not part of Europe. Strangely if you look at an atlas (you can find one online without leaving your seat) you will find we are quite a long way from Europe.
You DO realize that SCEA, SCEE, and SCE are all run by different people right? Also, that the individual countries can place limitations/policies on these companies?
And sorry for not knowing every currency in the world. It's not like I study this. Yes, I am well aware that Australia is not a part of Europe. I just don't know of much currencies, and out of the currencies that are on the other side of the globe, I pretty much only know of Euros, pounds, yen, and vaguely recall that I used to remember Thai, Chinese, and Korean currency.
You need the proper currency to use the PSN, unless you are fortunate enough to have a credit card that can be used anywhere in the world.
My understanding is they are all subsets of Sony right? Hence my statement and query as to why Sony are running it so badly. It may well be the Australian arm of Sony - but same company right?
Correct me if I am wrong.
