    I just bought a ps3, so I could care less about the ps4 until the price has gone down to $300 or less.

    Living in the states and not knowing Japanese, doesn’t really affect me very much. But damn, it sure is going to blow for AUS (and others) if games start getting region locked.

  3. Ninjakakashi says:

    I preordered the PS4 before Amazon stopped stocking them for the EU in order to increase NA sales.

    Can’t wait for a next gen console as I’ve been waiting for so long ……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

    “As the console itself is region free, it does say that some games may be region locked.”

    That doesn’t even make sense.

      It does, it most likely means that “typically” games can be played on the system regardless of the region they were released in, but “some” games might only be playable on PS4’s from the same region

      you can use a ps4 console from overseas in your home.. but there may be games from overseas you cannot play.. same as ps3 really..

    • Aishvern says:

      it means you can buy a PS4 console from somewhere and using it everywhere. PS4 won’t reject account created on different region from its original region. PS4 will play any game from different region as long as devs allow it.

  5. Musouka says:

    I don’t see a reason to worry. Just like the PS3, they are giving the option to lock the game to the publisher.

    In the end, if we exclude some DLC and online contents, only 2 games “Joysound Dive” (PSN) and “Persona 4 Arena” (physical) utilized the region lock on the PS3.
