Just thought it might be of use to some people to search through the database of games here based on restricted regions. There is a thread similar to this idea on .org and is one of the main reasons people interested in multi-region trophies go there.

What I'm suggesting is that, when looking through the "games" area on the PSNP home page, for you to have the option to restrict the displayed games based on their regions. For example, if I were to click the Chinese region button, only Chinese region games (for example: Demon's Souls (CH)) would display. This would provide a very simple, aesthetically pleasing approach to discovering that certain games are capable of multi-platting.

Would others be interested in this too?

Take a look at my checklist!

I would, but for a different reason. When browsing games it's slightly irritating have all these japanese or american titles mixed in. I would use such a feature to make sure only games in MY region will show up.

Trophy Games = 166

Latest Plat/100%:-#81 Infamous: Second Son/#74 Metal Gear Solid V:  Ground Zeroes 

Yet to 100%Uncharted 3 DLC - Metal Gear Solid 4 - Metal Gear Solid 2 HD - NFS Most Wanted DLC

Skyrim DLC - Okami HD - Quantum Conundrum - Dynasty Warriors 7 Empires - GTAV - Beyond: Two Souls

Knack - LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean - Don't Starve

The Walking Dead S2 - South Park: Stick of Truth

PS4 Games I plan on getting (subject to change of mind)

Watchdogs - Minecraft - Daylight - The Witness - The Crew

Star Wars: Battlefront - The Division - Uncharted - The Order 1886

I can see it being useful for certain things, more for what ShadowGandalf said than BT's use. As someone who goes for multiple-region platinums and 100%s where possible, I don't think it could be usefully leveraged for that purpose, but for filtering out games not available in your region, sure. Besides, having more criteria to search by is generally a good thing regardless.

That being said, I don't think this is a priority. Fixing the leaderboards and other such disabled stuff would be more imminently useful.
