Persona 4 Arena to be region locked

25 posts in this topic

Actually hear both US and JP version will have JP and English audio, while EU only have English Audio, so we pay more and get less.

Consider pick this game up, but Atlus has force my hand aka ain't gonna buy it #votewithyourwallet

Wow, that is kind of a kick in the nuts. I don't understand how region locking a game would ever be a good thing, what are the benefits?

Consumer - None (unless you are a retard with tutorial).

Company - MONEY.

Example: US will sell Persona 4: Arena for $59.99, while JP has to pay ¥7,329, roughly $92.

So to make everyone happy they should do what has always been done in the past. The game will be region free and sold in Japan for around $92 and then NA will get the game sometime next year at $60. Problem solved.

Wait, I thought I heard that no PS3 games were region-locked. What is up with this? I was going to possibly import Ice Age 4: Arctic Games, but now I am not so sure.

This game is region locked because the release date between Japan and the states is within a week of each other. The game in Japan is around $90 and the game in the states is going to be $60, so in order to cut down on everyone importing the game in Japan they put a region lock on the game. I guess the real question should be why the Japanese game is so expensive compared to the NA one?

And in Australia it'll be $98AU maybe $78 if JB do their usual... guess I'll probably have to import from the UK. *sigh*

EDIT:

And remember Australia is averaging 1:1 compared to the $US

Wow, that sounds like Japan is getting ripped off. Who would seriously pay $90 for a video game??? (unless it was a collector's edition)

Tax I guess.

Wouldn't shipping cost add to it if you import it?

Don't know what the shipping cost from US to JP are and if they have Tarafi.

Well, I guess that is just one more reason to be thankful for living in the U.S. :)
