You'll be able to access games on PlayStation Store that the PSN account region is from... so if you have a Chinese PS4 and a US PSN account when logged into PSN you'll be in the North American (which also includes Latin America) Store.

Some people make PSN accounts for different regions so that for example they can buy/download/play games from Asia, Europe (including Oceania and the Middle East) or Japan on a PS4 in the US.

Also according to Wikipedia there is no PlayStation Store in China... which is something I didn't know myself. :D

I tried registering new PSN account but it didn't work so please help TIA.

Hi Guys...

I have the same question. Recently i bought a Chinese mainland PS4 and upgraded to latest firmware 5.01. Now i want to know whether that back up and restore method still work with this new update? :(

Anyone tried and successful? Highly appreciate your feedback.
