So if I prefer to have my purchases locked to my US account, I have to get the R1 version right? Otherwise I have to create a SG account if I do it the way you mentioned, right?
You should create multiple accounts - SG, US, UK, Japan etc. (See the sticky thread on how to create.)

For example, if you buy a R2 game (local stores like to bring in R2 cos they are cheaper), you will need UK account to buy DLCs for the R2 game. (Interesting fact: R2/Europe/UK games are more expensive on day 1 but they drop in price quickly there. Somehow local importers are able to source from there at lower cost so R2 is cheaper in SG. However the DLC prices are still expensive. So keep that in mind if you plan to buy DLCs, don't buy R2 cos the game is cheaper, then end up paying more on DLCs.) Note that other region stores won't accept your SG credit card/paypal, so you need to buy psn cards (which is very easy to do digitally, and no mark up, you pay the same price as its value).

Even if you don't buy anything from those psn stores, you should still create the accounts for those countries, cos you can download free demos. Also, if you buy R1/R2/R3 games, there may be code inside for free DLCs, you will need to have the correct region account to claim them.

After creating all the different region accounts, login to each account, do this: Settings > Account Management > Activate as Your Primary PS4 > Activate (repeat for every account; yes, all accounts can have the same ps4 as their primary ps4). This way any account can share digital stuffs they own with any other account on the same ps4. (btw this assumes you only have 1 ps4.)

This will free you from sticking to one region only. You can buy from R1/R2/R3 as you like, going for the cheapest (especially for digital psn store sales). Then just use whichever account you want to play all the games. It's is better to just use one account to play, cos you can accumulate trophies on the same account. (Use your PS+ account, cos it has cloud save.) (Do note that some games are account locked, as mentioned earlier.)

But from what I've observed the US PSN have the most offers, which is why I chose it as my main in the first place. I have no interest in demos from other regions - already not enough time to play the games bought, where got time for demos?

Looks like the whacking did something. I wonder what happened to those accounts that they locked up.

One of my favorite game in ps1 & psp. It seems like no graphic improvement at all for HD remaster.
