BUMMER: Countries without PlayStation Store access can’t use online multiplayer

eu-ps-blog-ps-plus-multiplayer-questionIt’s already known that the PS4 will require a PlayStation Plus subscription in order to use online multiplayer for purchased games. But what about players in countries that don’t have access to the PlayStation Store? Romanian user “gennosuke11” asked the question on an official European PS Blog post, and received the following (unfortunate) response:

“Unfortunately at this time gamers in countries which do not have a Store cannot access online multi-player features. However, we are considering every measure to offer PlayStation Store services to these territories as soon as possible. To clarify, the affected territories are: Bahrain, Lebanon, Romania, Oman, Slovakia, Malta, Cyprus and Iceland.”

It is a bummer. As Analog Addiction pointed out, however, the EU PlayStation Blog only focuses on European countries, so there may be users in other countries who will be facing the same problem. Of course, the problem can be “fixed” by creating a foreign account to access the PlayStation Store and purchase a PS Plus subscription to access multiplayer, but it’s an (unnecessary?) inconvenience.
