Official word from the mouth of Yoshida. Most excellent.

Kyoufu 09-16-2011 10:40 PM

Pretty sure this is old news. Remember hearing this some time around E3.

DrFunk 09-16-2011 10:40 PM

The correct decision.

TacticalFox88 09-16-2011 10:40 PM

Sony is doing SOO many things right with this handheld it's ridiculous

Aeana 09-16-2011 10:41 PM

The eternal pessimist that I am refuses to believe for 100% certain until someone actually runs software from another region on it, but this is certainly good news either way.

Napalm_Frank 09-16-2011 10:41 PM

SMH @ nintendo.

Only if Vita had replaceable battery it would be pretty much perfect.

The Dutch Slayer 09-16-2011 10:41 PM

YES !!!! awesome news! still going to buy a EU device but if their is every a game that will not be release in my region at least I can import it than.

SykoTech 09-16-2011 10:41 PM

Based on the word of mouth here, I thought it was already. Great news though.

Well it has been speculations the whole time, but this is a confirmation.

And because we live in an unjust world it will fail!

spats 09-16-2011 10:41 PM

Giving more thought to importing now.

Nuclear Muffin 09-16-2011 10:41 PM

Eyeballs Nintendo...

Well done Sony!

K.Jack 09-16-2011 10:41 PM

Beautiful. Now if I could just read and speak fluent Japanese.....

[QUOTE=salromano]Pretty sure this is old news. Remember hearing this some time around E3.[/QUOTE]

It was a slightly vague 'as far as I know it is' from a SCEE guy. This is much better :)

Aeana 09-16-2011 10:42 PM

[QUOTE=salromano]Pretty sure this is old news. Remember hearing this some time around E3.[/QUOTE]
Some dude from Sony Europe said it might be, which wasn't really confirmation.

Castor Krieg 09-16-2011 10:42 PM

[QUOTE=salromano]Pretty sure this is old news. Remember hearing this some time around E3.[/QUOTE]

It was never explicitly confirmed, just hinted-on. Now we have a confirmation.

Wario64 09-16-2011 10:42 PM

S. Yoshida has a sense of humor confirmed

DMPrince 09-16-2011 10:42 PM

has he answered if we are allowed to have more than one psn accounts on vita?

Shed_a_Ninja 09-16-2011 10:42 PM

[QUOTE=bandresen]And because we live in an unjust world it will fail![/QUOTE]

Well, think of it this way:

The more they fail, the harder they will try to succeed.

Barakov 09-16-2011 10:42 PM

Fantastic.

Trakdown 09-16-2011 10:43 PM

Good, now somebody just needs to get DJ Max Technika up for pre-order. :D

hawt 09-16-2011 10:43 PM

Now the question is whether or not I should import...

Tain 09-16-2011 10:43 PM

Good! Would even think about buying it if it weren't.

Kyoufu 09-16-2011 10:43 PM

[QUOTE=Aeana]Some dude from Sony Europe said it might be, which wasn't really confirmation.[/QUOTE]

Especially when one of those Sony Europe dudes said the analogue sticks were clickable...

Grinchy 09-16-2011 10:43 PM

[QUOTE=Shed_a_Ninja]Well, think of it this way:

I am secretly hoping they fail a little bit so they have to Nintendo the price.

sTeLioSco 09-16-2011 10:43 PM

its better this way.....

Bebpo 09-16-2011 10:43 PM

This news makes my wallet happy

SalsaShark 09-16-2011 10:44 PM

kewl

thank god for flashcarts on the 3DS

Crakatak187 09-16-2011 10:44 PM

The only thing we need a confirmation of is multiple accounts.

perfect free 09-16-2011 10:44 PM

Great to hear official confirmation!

EhrgeizVII 09-16-2011 10:45 PM

I didn't expect otherwise from Sony.

Wario64 09-16-2011 10:45 PM

[QUOTE=DMPrince]has he answered if we are allowed to have more than one psn accounts on vita?[/QUOTE]

This is the next big question to ask.

Either way, digital downloading will make importing fuck-tons cheaper than it normally is. As long as you can find a way to pay for the games... (which shouldn't be too big a problem with PSN cards)

LiK 09-16-2011 10:45 PM

glad it's confirmed. no more worries.

gofreak 09-16-2011 10:45 PM

The fact that all games are downloadable means 'importing' games could be extremely trivial.

Just buy PSN cards from different regions and log onto stores, and purchase away?

Hopefully you can play 'authorised' content from any account on your Vita...if switching accounts isn't as easy as on PS3 that's OK, as long as you don't have to switch just to play.

How much more cheaper do you guys expect this beast to cost? free?

Shed_a_Ninja 09-16-2011 10:46 PM

[QUOTE=Grinchy]I am secretly hoping they fail a little bit so they have to Nintendo the price.[/QUOTE]

Same. Hoping for a $199.99 or lower pricetag. Couldn't give two shits for 3G, and I hate At&t.

ZoddGutts 09-16-2011 10:46 PM

Nice. Will import Dream Club Vita game.

Andrefpvs 09-16-2011 10:46 PM

Yeah! You guys know what this means:

I didn't doubt it, but [I]feels good man.[/I]

Acosta 09-16-2011 10:46 PM

Fantastic, Sony get this at least.

Seik 09-16-2011 10:47 PM

Great, the contrary would've surprised me.

Wow I almost forgot about human teddy. I should have finished that game.

Fantastical 09-16-2011 10:48 PM

Thank God. Nintendo's region locking is so senseless.
