  • What are the regions affected by this problem? I’ve tried a few VPN and still see it, I don’t think I’m that unlucky in picking regions.

  • I have the same problem, even VPN doesn’t work the fun fact is I can log in without problems on my Android device (Xperia X Performance) and on my PS4, no problems with these devices but on Windows I can’t with Remote Play or PS Now, I’m from California.
