They leave the decision up to the devs and the only game that i know that was region locked on PS3 was P4 Arena. Which only hurt Atlus because Europeans were pissed off at the late release date here.

P4A thing really pissed me off because i loved the game.

gaffyh1689d ago

Yeah this is actually very old news. We've known this since E3, it is just like PS3 and there were very few games that actually were region locked.

Abriael1689d ago

That one was actually slightly justified, because Zen United wouldn't have maked a penny out of it if Atlus' US version wasn't region locked lol.

*wouldn't have MADE a penny

I was interested in P4 Arena, but I've been in Hong Kong instead of Holland the last 10 months, so wasn't able to pick it up here, due to that stupid region-lock.

By now I don't really care anymore, because I believe there's a new release coming out for Arcade (I think), as I assume it will also find it's way to console.

They still have arcades there? Lucky...

My_precious1689d ago (Edited 1689d ago )

yes, it's piss me off too, i really looking forward when this game be announce but end up don't buy this one because of that's stupid region lock confuse the hell out of me

i'm using hong kong PS3 but my account is from NA store, i don't know which version i must buy for that game to work properly for both online and future DLC

and i won't buy any game use region lock on PS4 either because i plan to import my PS4 from either asia region or japan, just like my ps3 because i kind of feel that using O as the confirm button is more suit for me than using X like in US and EU version

No, you people do not know sarcasm.... Nice one domination.... Only fanboys do not know sarcasm... Because they respond right away without thinking...

Gamer19821688d ago

This is the same as PS3 and i'm all fine with letting devs choose. Like with PS3 only a couple of games will be locked but every benefit you give devs to choose your console helps.

I'm hoping it'll more likely be the case for Japanese games on EU or US consoles. I plan on getting a US PS4 for use in the UK so this potential game only region locking better not screw that up or else I'll have a very sad face.

RedDevils1688d ago (Edited 1688d ago )

Lol why the hell you get US PS4 to use in the UK? Especially if you not 100% sure that games will run

dannylilley1688d ago

Because everything else pointed to it working up until this point.

Baka-akaB1689d ago

Nothing has change it's the exact same policy .

Hicken1689d ago

Yeah, I'm not seeing any differences.

Eonjay1689d ago

It probably wont be much of an issue because the PS4 will be in most territories by mid 2014 anyway. We know the console isn't region locked so if it turns up that a tile can't be played, we know who to blame.
