Not necessarily the case as some game titles have worldwide server connections (or individual region connections that you are change to a different area on the globe).

What may cause an issue is if you ever wish to buy downloadable content (game packs, add-ons, extra characters, etc). You may have to find a method of paying for this content on the US PlayStation Store (that will not accept UK-registered credit cards).

(Free) In-game patches (fixes to broken functionality, or enhanced options) may download from the US rather than from a local region server, and this may take several minutes to several hours longer (depending on the size of the patch file) than if using a UK (European) sourced title.

After launching from your XrossMediaBar, some titles do not allow you to continue without downloading the most up-to-date version (patch).

BFN,
