Sorry if I have posted it in an incorrect sub-forum.

Current in the compatibility list, "Asia" and "Hong Kong" are divied into 2 regions, and China PR's flag and Hong Kong's flag are used repsectively. But I think there are belong to the same region named as Asia. Here are some of the reasons:

1) PS3 has never officially sold in the mainland China, so China PR's flag should not be used. (However, PS2 and PS4 has been officially sold in the mainland China)

2) Those BLAS / BCAS games are mainly sold in the "Asia" region defined by Sony, (i.e. Hong Kong + Taiwan + South East Asia as far as I know).

I suggest combining two regions into one "Asia" region and use another flag instead, e.g. ASEAN flag.

Would like to hear more comments or idea from all of you guys. Smile
Have a nice day.

In terms of PS3 ProductCodes, ASIA region and HONG KONG are two different product codes, that was defined by Sony itself when cataloging PS3 Games, see here: https://www.psdevwiki.com/ps3/Productcode#Physical, therefore I think it's better to list them separatedly

Regarding the ASIA region flag, I've switched it to the ASEAN flag
