Anyone can help me with my question?

I want to get PSN plus, but not sure to get Asia or USA as $43.90 compared to $75 is quite significant.
you buy games from asia or us psn? or you like me only play physical discs?

Asia account log on asia server, US account log on US server.....at least thats what i have been told. The PSN shop also different depending on which account you log into. Eg. US PSN shop have Yakuza 5, asia PSN dont have. US PSN also dont accept singapore credit card and paypal accounts with address not in US
you can always buy us psn card from local game stores or you can apply for a vpost with us address.

for price drop then wait for ps5 then wait again for ps6 etc. actually now is the best time to buy ps4 unless you are waiting for ps4 slim.
yeah keep on waiting.. can never buy any console..

Least latency matching is correct. It wont match you based on psn location
Thank you very much.

So I guess for PSN Asia account:

Pros:
1. Cheaper ($43.90 compared to $75 which would increase further as USD/SGD will rise after Fed future rate hikes, looking at possible 1.8 or even 2)

2. Can use credit card straight debit


Cons:
1. US PSN plus offer better discounts as a plus member, in terms of amount of savings and game choices


So I guess it depends on if you are likely to purchase a lot of digital games, US PSN plus is better. If you are a more physical copy/2nd hand guy, Asia PSN plus is better (you can still purchase games from US PSN when there are sales).

Is is right?

I prefer digital to be honest, cos I hate keep taking out disc and insert disc when on off the ps4. Very troublesome. I will be buying FFX and Street fighter V digital copy.

But I also like buying in carousel because really cheaper by a lot. Sorry ah, uncle very broke please don't look down on me buying second hand games.

if you buy more digital then just get us psn plus.

then you need to upgrade hdd to a higher capacity.

personally i don't really like digital.. because its takes so long to download even of fibre connection and it takes up lots of space in hdd.

Another thing is you can't sell away digital games to other people.

the only good thing is digital games, the prices can be really attractive at times.
