PS Vita Confirmed Region Free

Does it get more official than a confirmation from Shuhei Yoshida, Sony’s President of Worldwide Studios?  Probably not.  Which is why his Tweet yesterday locking down the PS Vita as being region free makes this particular author at least very excited indeed.  Especially as the 3DS isn’t, for reasons only Nintendo know.

I bought my first PSP from Japan, importing it over the net, and I’m hopefully going to do the same with Vita as I know someone out in Japan who’s been kind enough to put down a pre-order.

Until then, let us know if you’re planning to import one, or are preferring to wait for the European/American releases at some point next year.  If you are importing, let me know which games – I could do with a few suggestions from the list.  I’m looking at Uncharted, Ridge Racer, Little Deviants and Everybody’s Golf.


  1. Region free is good news. I won’t be importing the PSV, although I may import games for it (which is the best reason for region free).

  2. will be getting on UK release.

  3. European release for me, hopefully we will have third party accessories then aswell.

  4. I’ll import, probably from the US when I’m there in April. They always have better deals (than Australia) and their tanking dollar makes it even more tempting.
