...but for those of us in Asia and Oceania, the lag between us and people in the EU or US sucks. Massively. As in, COD4 becomes completely unplayable due to lag when there's even one European or North American in the game.

I know for many people this regional thing stinks, but for me and a lot of others, this is awesome. No lag = great fun.

Of course, it'd be better if they just gave you the option of choosing who you want to play with.

That can be done without region locking the game.
All they have to do is look what region the users PSN is in.

I know, I'm just saying that I'm not worried about it because of that.

Honestly, I don't know why so many console FPSs have such crappy lobby systems. If you could choose your own server based on ping, I'd be much happier. (Yes, I'm looking at you, COD4.)

Or heck, online do Coop internationally.

"This deterministic approach applies to both PS3 and 360. Something to note as well is that Resistance: Fall of Man was also region-locked when it started."

Now get to work on NOT making it region locked and allow us a smooth gameplay worldwide.

EDIT: @ Meus. They I don't get why he mentioned it. I may have skipped a whole paragraph though ;D

Except Resistance doesn't suffer from Lag. It has dedicated servers - to which this game is just P2P

bumnut3754d ago

you still get lag on dedicated servers, trust me i know these things
