American psn account

Hi everyone.

I have got my UK PSN account but how do I go about setting up a USA account as there are more games in USA PSN.

Cheers

Buy a US PSN card code from Amazon, make us account and input fake zip codes, etc as needed if required. For my EU account I had to fake a lot of info to get it to work lol. I also has a Jp account on psn.

why does each region have different store items or what? why would you want an american or japanese account just curious as to why? for example does North American PSN users only play with North Americans or is it global? sorry dont know much about this

PSN online play is global and most PS3 and network games are the same. I'd say the most common reason for creating an american account would be the PS1 games. Not only does the US get way more PS1 classics than EU but all their games are in 60hz

You need a new user profile for each account, yes.
