Since PS3 went on sale in Europe last Friday, some PlayStation.com forum users have complained that they can't access PS Store. The service is reportedly unavailable in territories including Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Iceland, Israel, Saudi Arabia and Slovenia.
Speaking to GI.biz Nick Sharples, SCEE's director of corporate communications, confirmed that there will be a delay to the arrival of PS Store in some countries.
"There are more than 102 territories in the region, and each Store has to be made unique for each territory due to different currencies and languages," he explained. "Stores will reach some territories in due course."
However, Sharples continued, some countries "won't get a store at all" due to factors such as lack of broadband penetration. "The PS Store may not be accessible in Azerbaijan, for example," he added.
