I was reading in the Yakuza 3 thread today and saw this:

So here we go.

First thing we have to do is create a new user on the XMB. This can be done by going all the way to the left and selecting the Create New User icon.
Choose a name for this local account, mine is "Japan". After you have done this sign in to the new account and go all the way to the right until you reach the Network tab of the XMB.



You should be looking at a screen like this. Select the Sign Up for the Playstation Network option.



We now reach this screen, pretty straight forward at this point since it is all in English. Select Create a New Account (New Users).



Again simple stuff here, just select Continue.



From the Country / Region of Residence drop-down select Japan.



From this point forward all of the options will be in Japanese. Enter your birthday and then select 次へ to continue to the Terms of Service.



Time to sell your soul to the Japanese, select 同意する to agree to the Terms of Service.



The first input box is asking for an email address. I would recommend using a real one just incase you forget your password.
Under that is the input box for your password. The yellow text says must contain atleast 6 characters using numbers and letters. Re-enter your password again in the 3rd input box.

Check the box if you wish for your password to be saved.

The drop-down box is for a Security Question. Pick one.
In the box below make your answer something you will remember.

Select 次へ to continue.



Now you are choosing your PSN ID. Make it anything you want.

After you enter a name you will see one of 2 screens.



If you get this screen, your user name is available. Select OK.



If you get this screen, the user name you entered is already used by another user. Hit O to return to the previous screen and choose a different name.

After your PSN ID is chosen select 次へ to continue.



Last name, first name, and gender is entered here. Pick anything you want.

Select 次へ to continue.



Time to enter a fake address. Enter numbers in the first input box.

For the drop-down box choose anything you want.

For the next 4 boxes you can input anything you want, Sony doesn't check the address.

Select 次へ to continue.



Check this box if you wish to receive emails from Sony.

Select 次へ to continue.



You are at the home stretch, all you have to do now is confirm the info you entered.

Select 確定 to confirm.



Congratulations you have a Japanese PSN account. Press X to go to the Store.



This is the updated translation for the store sidebar.

If you can think of anyway to make this guide more clear, just let me know.

Or you might be able to have GAF member who lives in Japan to get you some if you ask nicely.

The same way as any other. All accounts see the same themes available under "Theme Settings."

You switch to your main US account, and go to themes and it's right there.

All content is shared on the system as long as you have the account on the system.

Hmmm... after submitting my security question, I'm getting a long delay followed by a (80023103) error. Anyone have an idea what it's telling me I've done wrong?

EDIT: I changed nothing, and after 3 more tries it went through. Strange.

Mainichi Issyo?

If your clock and timezone don't match up, it will pop an error preventing you from starting it up for this particular "game"

1. Seems like you can.
2. Yes, press select to get English characters
3. Yes, but pick a country in the EU.

Go to the Add-ons section and scroll all the way to the bottom. There are folders for themes there.

Are there any dynamic themes left on the Japan store? They seem to be charging for the Africa theme now.

Why kick this thread when there's a link in every week's store thread to something different: http://www.psnstores.com/2009/10/cre...e-psn-account/
