The good guys at VGP did some testings on their PAL Xbox 360 and confirmed that Street Fighter IV is region free.
ps3 too always
And yet, has not one single thing to do with this story.
it doesn't really matter since all 3 regions will be getting the game around the same time..
Yes, not always, but in the absolute majority of the cases, yes. But this is how it is supposed to be, 360 is hit or miss in region lock, that's why we need 360 article and not PS3 ones in this matter. We would need a PS3 one if the game was indeed region locked. Get it?
So why do we need a story everytime a PS3 game has an install. Shouldn't we be getting a story if a game DOESN'T have an install?
Well, actually mandatory, optional or none install are way too hit or miss, so it COULD, still your logical is closer of the ideal than you might have thinked. It shouldn't need any articles becuase those install don't really change the nature of the game. But if you are going to push uneeded news anyway, be it that is possible to optimize enough to get rid of the installs or minimize it, not the other way around, 'cause it mundane. EDIT: Wow, my english is always bad (not a native speaker) but today I'm breaking some records here... I'm going to sleep! LOL
well that was my point, its unneeded news. Its usually just used as flamebait. EDIT FOR BELOW Back on topic, nice talking to ya. Dont worry about the disagrees, I think I have a stalker.
Agreed. It's not necessary just because of possible variation (installs, region locks, language) but it depends if this variation is matter of interest, which I doubt install is one (unless we are talking about something that make then relevant, like optimizing over time, measuring games with installs this year and how many we have in earlier years). Now I think we should go on-topic again. LOL PS: I'm not the one that hit the disagee Bathyj.
Cool, but why does that matter. Is someone getting this early?
It just came out yesterday here in america.
There is people that imported their consoles so they now know they don't need to import also the game. There is people in regions were the game maybe isn't launch (in Brazil, at least for now, this is the case), they can import it. There is people that are living out of they country and bring their 360s with then, they don't need to import if they don't mind the local language/subtitles. Just to say 3 very possible situations.
Cool, good answers.
how is this copying from the PlayStation?
Xbox 360 Welcome to 2006!!!
I'm not asking that in the usual 'why are people posting this sort of news' way. I'm asking it in a 'haven't we known this for ages?' way. Import websites have known this for months.
This has been known ages ago since it was leaked.
This is a non story - anyone can do a warez search and see its region free release, we knew that many days ago.
Nice. Should do this to all games in the future. I don't want anymore cases where I miss games like Metal Wolf Chaos and importing is always good too. Someones been learning from the PS3.
