Does that mean game cards are region locked now? Or can I still import physical games?

Game cards are still unlocked. So are digital games, you just need to have one memory card per account or use a PC to transfer your data back and forth.

ITT: Whining because of added security, and prevention of cheaters and piracy.

And when Sony decides to implement full region locking.. how are you going to defend that?


sorry...but are we supposed to actually care about region locking?

I thought the fact that the Vita wasn't region locked was supposed to be a great thing. In fact you would even mention it as a positive point against the 3DS. Wow, Goon has hit a new low.

No, that will work. What you can't do is mix digital games from different regions on the same card.

You couldn't do that anyway. This just locks mem card to 1 account so you can't switch. you could never play gamses from other regions on adifferent account. Can't do it on PS3 either.From: Compass | #173

monkeyspoon here seems to be the perfect example of a Sony Fanboy.
EVERYTHING SONY DOES IS AWSHUM! U STUPID IF U DISAGREE!


monkeyspoon is a well known fanboy. He's always hanging around the 360 boards trolling even though he's been owned several times. This is the same kid that was crying his eyes out during the whole 13 fiasco. Some of these Sony kids need to grow up.

Yeah, he's definitely in the upper echelon of rabid fanboys. What is the "13 fiasco"?


FF13 going to xbox 360. The entire sony fanbase went into meltdown during that time, don't you remember?

Yes you can actually, as long as that PS3 is synced with the account the game from another region was bought with all users have access to it.

Just when you thought the Vita couldn't get any worse.

It's funny because even without modding it, the original PSP has more freedom and useful features than the Vita probably ever will.


Although I won't argue with you on that one, I will say that I bought my Vita to play GAMES, not to uses it's other non-gaming-features.

In other words I couldn't care any less about the ''Freedom'' you speak of, as long as it plays ames I want to play.
