PS Vita Is Region Free
The news about the PS Vita being region free came from Shuhei Yoshida (Sony Computer Entertainment president of Worldwide Studios) in a conversation through twitter.
lonelypessimist Ray @yosp is it confirmed yet if vita is region free?
Shuhei Yoshida@lonelypessimist Yes, it is.
There are a few games that I don't mind playing in any language other than English. I love Japanese games, and Super Robot Wars and the like are the type of games that I don't mind importing.
This sure opens some advantage on the part of PS Vita. This is one thing I don't understand about Nintendo, can someone please explain to me why they region locked the 3DS?
The PS Vita will be coming to Japan stores come December 17, 2011.
