Why would you region lock a demo?

Information Minister1925d ago

Because Zone of the Enders HD Collection was released in Europe not even 2 weeks ago with this very same demo as selling point.

Wow demos are getting region locked now? *Throws hands up and walk away* I'm done.

sony is becoming a more evil corp :/ first online codes and now this..
wtf playstation stop it..

edit, i believe they do, why will they not?
and what about online passes?
not having good deals for digital games and over changing them and not been capable on keeping or having competitive prices?
don't defend a corporation never, they are not humans.

SONY, PLAYSTATION let's start next gen with giving dlc free like it should to be.
i'm ok with you charging extra colors or suit but maps or extra levels? stop it already..
giving free dls next gen will help them a lot to make new sales, give love and you will get love.. it's not that hard to understand.

I will have buy more games if dlc are free, more people will play them if dlc are free and communities will ge stronger and peopl will enjoy the games how was meant to be and fallow that franchise more.

Because Sony has a say in this?

NovusTerminus1926d ago

Sony didn't do this... DW7E's demo was not region locked.

This is on Konami, not Sony.

GenericNameHere1926d ago

The PS3 is the ONLY console to not have region-lock this gen (meaning PS3, Wii, and 360, though I'm not sure if the Wii U is region-locked or not). The only game that was EVER region-locked in its entire life so far is Persona 4 Arena a few months ago. This demo is the FIRST EVER region-locked demo in the entire PSN lifetime.

If there's anyone who region-blocked this demo, it's definitely NOT Sony. They're the ones who is fine with importing, so it's mostly Konami's decision to make it region-lock.

Online passes a problem?

If you ask me, I'd rather have those then be charged to play online.

But I agree, they can get pretty annoying.

sithsylar1926d ago

Online passes can be a problem but easily adverted when its easy to make a psn account for any country and then you are pretty much fine.

Wow region locking a demo... I would like to no the reason behind this stupid decision.

sithsylar1926d ago

I second this motion.... I really really hate region locking...

unknownhero11231925d ago

it's to make sure people buy the ZoE collection since it has the demo. In other words, the reason was money.
