Default PS4 Online Gaming with people in other countries?

On the PS3, can you have people living in other countries on your friend's list and game with them or are you limited to your own country?

I have a buddy that lives in Japan and we game on the xbox 360 without a problem. It's also a great way to communicate since we can easily send each other audio messages, text messages, and of course, chat over xbox live. He might convert to the PS4, so hopefully this is possible over the PSN. I've gamed online on the PS3 from time to time, but I haven't noticed many people speaking other languages other than Spanish.

I've met people from all over the world. Saudi Arabia, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Canada, USA, France and so on. I've even played quite often with a lot of them or talked to them. It's more a case of once they're on your friends list you have to ability BUT I do remember the first Resistance game didn't have ANY international server integration for quite a while post launch.

There's no restriction on friends lists on PSN. Some specific games are region-specific in terms of what servers you might connect to, to keep the connection lag low between players (fighting games in particular), but it's usually controlled through the region of the account you connect from.

Other games don't care and will freely connect players around the world.

Excellent! Good to hear. Thanks for the replies.

It's also nice that both of the new systems have region free games as well. A lot of good options for this next gen!

Some games (Uncharted 3) go out of their way to connect you with players from other countries.
