Don't confuse "PSN" (Playstation Network, which is free, lets you access Sony's services like online store, party chat, text messaging etc) and "PS+" (Playstation Plus, which is a paid subscription service, lets you access online gaming, cloud save, monthly free games, further discounts during sales).

You first need to make accounts on the regions/countries. Should at least have an account in each of these: SG, US, UK, Japan. Different regions run different sales, so if you want to get the cheapest digital games, look at all regions. And different regions sell different games, like you won't find most of the indie games on SG psn store. Note that regions outside Asia will not accept your SG credit card/paypal. You need to buy the respective PSN cards (prepaid card for wallet top-up), you can get them digitally from Amazon or PC Game Supply, at no mark up, just pay the same as face value of the card. See the first 2 posts of the Game Deal thread. Note that games purchased from one region/account can be played by other accounts, they are sharable within your PS4. (Some exceptions, where DLCs purchased, like microtransactions, are locked to the account that bought them.)

Create these accounts even if you don't intend to buy anything or subscribe to PS+ in their regions. Reason is that you can download free demos (some are available in certain regions only) and freebies. Also when you buy games in local game shops, they often sell different regions: R3, R2, R1. For example, if you buy R2 game (often cheaper than other regions), you need UK/R2 account to redeem any codes included in the game casing or to buy DLCs for the game. R1 will need US, R3 will need SG (or maybe HK if Chinese game, esp from Bandai Namco).

See the sticky thread: Guide: How to create US/UK/JP PSN accounts.

Subscribing to PS+ is a different consideration. You only need one account to subscribe, then the benefit of accessing online games can be shared, the free games can be shared too, as described above. This is different consideration cos different region PS+ are priced differently and you get different free games. And each region runs different sales. Generally you should consider US (or Canada, which is same region as US, but sometimes cheaper) or SG. US is more expensive (US$60 per year) but gets better freebies/sales, SG cheaper (S$43.xx per year) but less freebies and less sales (and SG store has lots lots less games available, esp indie games). Might want to think further and maybe wait for offers (eg. SG now has buy 1 year get 2 more months free) before taking the plunge. Once you subscribe, you accumulate free games (must claim within that month, but continue to enjoy), your library grows, you will probably want to stay with that region PS+ (otherwise you lose all those accumulated free games).

As mentioned, the free games are different. US and UK nowadays generally the same (6 games per month), but SG/Asia has less free games (3 to 5 free games per month, often lousier titles but once in a blue moon gets some unique AAA free). Like now US/UK has Friday the 13th free, but not on SG (SG doesn't sell that game, even if you want to pay money for it).

to be fair production value of sotr and spiderman is worth the cost , this shows in the attention of detail in texture , sounds , animation , art design etc

ex : https://i.redd.it/vgqryul3pzo11.png ,

also take a look at how much detail designed and sculpted into the spidey suit and how they fit with the environment : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cGfBvcFZm3M , this makes the game worth it ( for some )

the attention of detail often missed by people and they just go "lol this game is just 20 hour why so expensive"

Not many mainstream reviews, here are a couple of smaller sites:


Jim Sterling b*tches about everything in the game industry, but he loves this game ("hundred fists out of a hundred")
