This is most likely due to a lack of server presence outside of the listed areas rather than any sort of intentional directed hostility to the unlisted areas.

As I said in the other thread:

Well being from Portugal, this means I wouldn't be able to use their console if I bought it.

So they've just helped me decide to get the PS4.

THANKS MICROSOFT!

So even if I wanted to buy it, I wouldn't have been able to. This is feeling like the exact opposite of the 360 launch. So many negative checkboxes ticked :/

Well so no one else would say it, sucks to be in Africa I guess ... then again Sony land here.
