As Destructoid writes, they confirmed with Atari that the North American version of Ghostbusters for the Xbox 360, set to hit stores on June 16, will not be region locked.
well there you go Euro Xbox 360 owners, import it while its hot
Smart move. I'm surprised more games haven't done this. Now the real question is whether Square Enix will wise up and put English or other language subs (if not tracks) into the Japanese release of FFXIII.
Hmm, yeah, more publishers should have region free games. From what I've seen and heard, Europes gets screwed quite often, just look at Tales of Vesperya. As for FF13, it's doubtful. My guess is that they're trying to get the game out as soon as possible. Also, if they were to do that, it would probably make quite a few Xbox360 owners jealous...as the 360 ain't getting FF13 in Japan (atleast, they're not supposed to as of now).
buy the game on 360 and sell it on Ebay to Europe 360 owners.
Good news...but i still dont see this game being huge sales wise..
Its a big thing to people who are around my age (27). Ghostbusters comes from the golden era, when kids still had good stuff to watch on tv. Unlike that pokemon crap, beetle hunter, dynoshambles stuff they have these days.
I'm 17 and looking forward to it ;) Loved the film! EDIT: Why the hell did i get a disagree?
Jeez I dont see whats the big deal about ghostbusters, I watched it when I was a kid and thought it was pretty crap. Then again I was more into Indiana Jones and James Bond...
Meh, just depends on what kind of films you like i guess. I'm an all-round kind of guy - i like just about any type of film there is (apart from romance and stuff...Obviously!)
@foxgod No joke, right? Ghostbusters was my favorite movie for like 10 years (I'm 30). This game could totally suck nard and I would still pick it up on Day 1. I've wanted to bust ghosts for a long, long time now. No more wearing a stuffed backpack and making my own sound effects after next Tuesday! :)
COol :D woohooo! :P
Don't you live in NA? Anyway, this is great news - good to know European xbox 360 only owners won't be TOTALLY denied this game for a few months.
No i am dutch. And indeed, Ebay is the ultimate solution now.
Oh right, must of been someone else.
Import it dude, eBay won't give the developers the cash they need.
Good news for you 360 owners here in Europe.
NICE! Import it is then!
Can't wait for this one! Please tell me it has four player co-op.
Importing costs higher though :S
Sounds like a big corporation caught onto multi-region being the future of consoles now after ignoring it for so long. Dammit MS, I still want to play Metal Wolf Chaos, XBOX originals...NOW!!!
This will be just a rental for me.
Since it comes with ghostbusters on blu-ray. For $60 you cant beat that deal.
lol... I don't get what the big hype of a game based on a movie... don't they all suck? or at least 99% of them? Don't both xbox 360 and PS3 have enough down the line to put false hope on this?
In most cases, yeah they do suck. For some reason I have high hopes for this one though. Hopefully we won't be disappointed.
about damn time! I don't see why they STILL do crap like this, in a global market, the melding of regions would be beneficial to manufacturing, as cheap local distributors could make just one copy of something, easing shipping and costs
Thats just F'ed up, sony actually get an exclusive of an multi plat game and yet doesn't matter cause 360 gets it r/free!
