And for some people, the news that they’ve been waiting for has just been confirmed. The PS Vita will be region free meaning it’ll be an importers dream come Japan launch for Ebay. Early adopters will be able to import one from their Asian importer of choice as early as December seeing as how other countries don’t have a release date as of yet. Console scalpers will no doubt do a roaring trade on Ebay and similar sites. I can’t wait to see what I find on Ebay when it’s launched in Japan, I’ll be posting that here! This important bit of news was confirmed by SCE President of Worldwide Studios, Shuhei Yoshida.
Apart from being able to snag a Vita before the Western world, this also means that those rare and quirky titles that never leave Japan will now be able to be imported as well so no one has to miss out. Unlike the 3DS with its region lock, you’ll be able to import the console but buy local games as well not just be stuck with importing.
So what are you waiting for…get cracking!!
