In a press release, Sony announced that players can get a free Final Fantasy 7 Remake PS4 theme featuring Tifa on the PlayStation Store right now! This isn’t just a static free PS4 theme, but a dynamic one.
Those interested, you can create an alternate R3 account, download or redeem this item and then just revert back to your original or main account and use the free theme there. Not sure how to make an R3 account check out the step-by-step guide below (via PlayStation LifeStyle).
Creating a Different Region PSN Account
What you’ll need before you begin: a real email address you already aren’t using with a PSN account and a valid address in the particular region. For the purposes of this tutorial, we will use Region 3.
- Log out of your main account on your PS4.
- Click “New User” from the following screen after logging out.
- Click “Create a user” and agree to the Terms of Service.
- Click “New to PSN? Create an account” at the bottom of the screen.
- Click “Sign up now”
- Choose country in your region. Chose Hong Kong or Singapore for R3
- Select language from the drop-down list available (Hong Kong allows English).
- Fill in your date of birth.
- Fill in the requested city and zip code information. With Hong Kong, all I needed was the city. Need help picking an address for your region? Pick an address from Frommer’s restaurant list. If you’re going to use Hong Kong, here’s the link to Frommer’s restaurants. For the city in Hong Kong, I went to Google maps and typed in the name of the restaurant of choice.
- Fill in a real email address and create a new password. Before you can redeem codes or make purchases in the PSN Store, you will have to verify the email address from your email account.
- Create a brand new PSN ID and a name.
- Go through the privacy settings and make any changes necessary.
- Accept the Terms of Service.
- Choose if you want to connect this account to Facebook.
- Buy a PlayStation Plus membership or skip it.
- Activate this system as your primary PS4. If you don’t, you won’t be able to play your new region games on your local PSN account.
- Verify your email.
- Go to the PS Store and have fun!
