Thanks Sony!

Doesn't really affect people in North America (except those who import Japanese games), but I must say, I am mighty happy to hear this news for my gaming brethren in Europe and Australia, since (correct me if I'm wrong) they can import games from the USA for a much cheaper price.

As an Aussie, this is a case of a gift that keeps on giving. Thankyou Sony.

The Xbox Brand was found dead on June 10th, 2013. The body was recovered from Silver Lake outside of Los Angeles where Sony dumped the remains after brutally beating them at its E3 Press Conference.

expected more new IPs and exclusives from Sony E3 presentation.. not disapointed though since they announced 30 in house exclusive games in development for PS4 among which 20 will release during Year one
RiPPn  +   437d ago
They didn't show everything at the presser, check this out:

Also don't forget the multiplats that Microsoft showed, Metal Gear, Battlefield, Call of Duty, Witcher 3 will all be there also.

http://www.youtube.com/user... theres a lot of stuff they didn't talk about, Microsofts exclusives are for the most part failures.

Xbox One WILL have Region lock. Let your minds marinate on all of the restrictions of that horrible machine...
NameRemoved0017  +   437d ago
Did you know that every Xbox One also will break the day after the warranty ends, this is why Microsoft requires online checks.
ShaunCameron  +   436d ago
With all the restrictions, I'd be surprised if it wasn't.
Sharp  +   437d ago
This is one of the biggest deal-maker or breaker for me, as I travel quite a lot, and I do take my home consoles with me (wand portables!).

I want to be able to buy games from USA, Europe and Japan (or Hong Kong/China) and just put them in my one personalized system and play them.

Thank you Sony, for listening us all and understanding that the world is now very globalized and interconnected place, where one system can work beyond the country borders!
FullmetalAlchemist  +   437d ago
Hell Yeah!
Lavalamp  +   437d ago
Fantastic News! Now I can import all my Gundams!

Edit: But the paid service seems likely to restrict online unless you buy PS+ for each region though.

... and it's a good thing i did it when i did because it's no longer available (EB games, i live in canada).

Just keeps getting better.
izumo_lee  +   437d ago
Good to know that i will be able to import the next Idolmaster game without hesitation! Thanks Sony! I need my Japanese boob jiggling physics :P
GenericNameHere  +   437d ago
We all do, Yu... We all do.

Btw, how's Rise? I'm pretty sure she's over legal age now. Do you think we'll maybe see a Risette cameo with jiggling boob physics in Persona 5?
Tatsuya  +   437d ago
Damn good news! Now I can pre-order from UK! Shipping to Asia :)
jc48573  +   437d ago
lol, another nail in the coffin
majiebeast  +   437d ago
Sony calm down the Xdone is already buried.
Rusty515  +   437d ago
At this point, Sony's just sh*tting on their grave.
Ritsujun  +   437d ago
The CODogs are chewing on the Xbones.
badz149  +   437d ago
I think
they are not satisfied until they've put layers of cement on top the grave and build a skyscraper on top of it so then people will only look up and not asking what was down there lol!
Godmars290  +   437d ago
Well that's another one down.

Just need to find out what's happening with the HDD, whether or not its swappable, and what if anything is going to happen to Home.

Also be nice if the PS4 had three HDMI ports. One in the back for the camera, which you don't have to buy.

@majiebeast above:
Sony's doing what they're doing for gaming, not competition. At least competition wasn't at the forefront of their thinking just like overconfidence.

Yes, the HDD is upgradable

Finally a good reason to buy the PS4 over the Xbox ONE....I was on the fence on this one.

NOT.
ElementX  +   437d ago
LOL, people still say "Not"? I thought that went out of style mid 90s

Another good news coming from Sony, the best gaming company in the world!
jonboi24  +   437d ago
I'm so glad that Sony has listened to the consumer except for that pay for on-line but I'll let that slide because of no DRM.
ziggurcat  +   437d ago
no region locking, either? it just keeps getting better, and better!
Neo43224  +   437d ago
Go Sony.
bjmartynhak  +   437d ago
Awesome! I'm living in UK for more 9 months, then going back to Brazil. Now I can safely pre-order mine here!

Thanks Sony! And sorry Wii U, I would take you too months ago if you were not region locked!
patterson  +   437d ago
This is great news as I sometimes get Hong Kong releases because they'll generally have English subtitles. Sony is definitely doing everything right!
