No, it's not. Take this game as an example, if it wasn't for region lock, EU and JAP people will definitely buy the US version which is cheaper. That affectedly makes the publisher in EU and JAP lose money. It sucks for us gamer, but not for business.

Well once Blazblue 3 will be release for Home console with no region lock at all, ZEN United will lose everything releasing P4A EU version AFTER Blazblue 3.

I understand where you're coming from, but how difficult is it to adjust prices for each currency (yes, probably hard)? it would be similar to books, on the back of a book usually it has the US price and the price for Canada. Instead, have the EU price and the JAP price also listed on the store.

Of course, if it was only that easy....

It ain't necessary true for EU, duo to traffi.
