Hello.

If you want the CR app for your PS3 or PS4 you have to download it from the US.

You will have to make a new user on your PS, then sign up for PSN again and register as someone in the US (don't have to have a real person just a real address, state, zip-code and all).

Then you just have to log on to PSN and get the CR app downloaded and then you can swap back to your standard EU account and use the app. CR just logs on to the EU servers.

This is for you guys how don't wanna wait for the CR app release in EU for PS3 or PS4. Only have these to so don't know if it will work on PSP etc.

Have fun!

This method have been known for month/years, 99% of CR users already know this. Plus there's tons and tons of gouids here on CR on how to do this already.

Also, the CR app is NEVER releasing in Europe since CR have a app publishing deal with SCEA "Sony Computer Entertainment America", in other words the american part of Sony that handles PlayStation in the US and Canada while SCEE "Sony Computer Entertainment Europe" handles Sony PlayStation in Europe. If the app is to be released in Europe then it's up to SCEE, but I doubt it considering the fact that they haven't released a Netflix app in some European countries where Netflix should and is available.

I'd like to correct you on the "NEVER". CR app has been available on the Australian PSN (which I believe falls under SCEE jurisdiction) for the PS3 for quite some time, even tho we had to wait a few months after the US release to get it. What is confusing is why it is missing from the PS4 for the same regions. As the Netflix app just went live this week on the AU (EU) PSN, perhaps CR might also be published for us non-US residents too.

@lugiamania : as a CR "Brand Manager", care to comment?

Is there a difference in quality between the PS3 and PS4 apps? Is it sharper?
