Hi there,

The extra surcharge is a conversion rate. Yes, it is rated SGD$39.95, but PSN will have a surcharge of $1.00++.
This apply to credit card as well.

If not wrong, Singapore PSN Store is on Region3 and head office is in Hong Kong. Japan Region is R2.

Do have a look at your online bank statement for which organisation did that deduction.
The surcharge don't go to psn, PlayStation CSO told me they only received sgd39.95. They told me is the bank that charged it and after calling posb, the posb CSO confirmed it was charged by them.

The change from HK to Japan was recent. They sent out email to all accounts:

The part about Asia PSN service improving is obviously an April Fool joke.


All along there was an additional charge, but based on my calculation, it was 1% (currently using POSB credit card, but used some other cards before). If it's 2.8% that sounds steep. I haven't bought anything since the April change, but will the bank charge more for Japan than Hong Kong? It used to be that if you use Paypal, there is no additional charge but I think I was charged additional as well, but didn't calculate whether Paypal is lower.
I believe its this one:


What the posb CSO that because the company I'm paying to is based in Tokyo that's why have the charge. Which is exactly the amount added. 102.8% of 39.95 is 41.0686, round up become 41.07.

Most credit cards are 1%. That 2.8% is crap.
You could look at something like YouTrip which has no transaction fees.

Playstation Japan made a video on upcoming games. The animation and art style is so nice.

Not sure if it's removed on the PS4's built-in store but the web store still has "demos and betas" section linked from the store's home page:
https://store.playstation.com/en-sg/...EMOTITLENAME/1

However, for a very long time now, they have removed the "new releases" or "new this week" section, what idiots! You won't see any link on the home page, though this hidden link still works:
https://store.playstation.com/en-sg/...t=release_date

Just bought a joystick. Samurai shodown was fun. Really like how the super special move deal so much damage and it can only be used once in battle.
