Region locking: friend or foe? A chat between two editors and your chance to have your say about one of gaming's biggest ongoing controversies.
Never will I support region locking... Never since I'm forced to mod my Wii to play The Last Story, Xenoblades etc...
I travel a lot, Thank god ps3 is not region locked for games, It still is for movies which sux
i live in nz plz i want region free gaming
PS3 is region free for PS3 games.
I love it. /s
Against big time.
"I do think that Nintendo is getting better at the process." uhuh tell me that again while still waiting for Xenoblade
Im against it. Its a stupid idea regardless of where you buy the game its still profit to the company. Im going to Canda this summer with a friend and I'm sure I will be buying a PS3 game or two while im there, its still money at the end of the day
FOE !! Region lock is EVIL .it serve no prupose other than prevent some games from being enjoyed by everyone.. i imported on PSP ( with hack ), DS, wii ( with hack ) ,ps2( with hack ) and ps3 ..and i also import PC games .. I play every kind of games and region lock is nothing than a pain . Uninformed people don't even know that importing exist ...
region free is the way to go imho. Take the Prince of Peris remake & also Record of Agarest, both were only available via PSN download in the states so I had a person from my friends list send them over from the UK on BR disc. I don't now and never will support digital distribution for anything other then some prono. So instead of missing out region free gaming let me have the ability to play those titles that I would have passed on because of them being DL only in the states.
This is so idiotic that the article doesnt even truly manage to foster an argument "For" the lock , beside something that doesnt matter at all to any gamer : the publisher's bottom line . Good luck forcing someone into imports to drop it and follow the herd like sheeps . We will still imports , or buy nothing at all .
I hope everyone realizes that the 3ds's are region locked but the games arent Its up to the devleoper whether they want to region lock or not
"damn region locking to hell"
Region Lock is for those who are narrow minded, so I'm obviously against it...
Its BS and completely not needed - seriously, money is money - if you buy something as an import, you should have the right to use it on your nation's console.
Being Australian I import due to cost, I can import games for around half the cost retailers charge here! Only down side on PS3 is I need several PSN accounts as DLC tends to only work from the store region the game comes from.
