IGN: "In a PlayStation Vita session for European and Australian press at E3 today, Michael Denny, Sony's Vice President of Sony Worldwide Studios Europe, confirmed that - to the best of his knowledge - Vita would be region free."
That good. I believe Sony has made region lock optional to devs. There are only about 1-3 PS3 games that are actually region locked, bayonneta being the first i believe.
Awesome.... That's mean Australians will be able to import games. Don't wanna pay near AUD100 for a PSV game.
Oh yes yes yes, PSV keeps getting better
You got that right. I knew Sony would be smart about the pricing on this device, and region free as well? Awesome :)
and the good news keeps coming
nice that means i will be ordering one from the good ole US of A
Seriously. Sony is making all the right moves lately.
So true they care about their fans
Dammit! I was hoping that would of said White Knight Chronicles II was regional free...
It is? lol I got it from Japan last september and it works fine in my PS3
Well I wonder if the same would work with the EU version... I just want to play this already.
It should do man, I see no reason why it shouldn't do :]
It looks like Vita will be able to do Party chat finally, even though it's not a feature i really use on my 360 it would make alot of the bitching stop. I do hope Sony find a way to implement party chat to the ps3 and have it cross platform to the vita as well, that would actually be the sickest thing ever.
Region free huh? That would be a change of pace for Sony. I still remember when they got Lik-Sang closed down for importing PSPs
That's because they were selling the PS3's to regions where the PS3 wasn't officially available. Once the game/console is available in all three regions you can import how much you want.
Good now I can import my Vita instead of paying the ripoff UK price for it.
wow, more great news! great prices, great specs, great line-up, PS3 & PSV transfarring, etc2! and like i said before: day 1 baby!!!
This is great for people who love importing games. Especially for American gamers who love importing Japanese titles. What i dont get is why the 3DS has region lock for some regions. http://www.destructoid.com/...
Hell yes! :D
