F**k you SCEE.

US.


I think it's safe to say that Vita sells better in EU than US...

If all DLC came tied to $13 figurines, I'd consider all DLC to be free

I am digital only on Vita - last retail game i bought was Persona 4 Golden. Still sad to see a big budget first party game not having a retail presence.

I would import but Soul Sacrifice got a bunch of DLC so Freedom Wars might, too.

Digital-only is okay as long as the pricing is fair, but it's Europe so it won't be.

This shitty support is really getting worse and worse.
Let the rights to publish the game to NISA, they could handle it better.
Meanwhile this thing got physical release:

Good Job Sony.

Complain. Seriously. I remember when it looked like Gravity Rush was going to be PSN exclusive in EU too. Freedom Wars has an online pass, so EU folk can't import.

Oh wow, really? Come on this is an internal game, they even went as far as calling it a game that's "as triple A as it gets" at E3... Yet it doesn't deserve a physical release.

I thought we were out of the online pass-gaming ghetto

Wah yeah. I keep forgetting this is first party. Wow no retail... Well thankful I at least can get the game. Doesn't matter so much to me as long as pricing is fair.

Man, Sony really don't have any confident on the game in the West. Barely any advertisements (should've been shown at E3 at the very least), $30 price tag, no english dub.

Oh it appears I already had it pre-ordered through VGP for less than 25 euro, a real release, and cheaper. Fellow Europeans that don't tolerate this digital only practice should order elsewhere as well.
The problem is... thanks to online pass + one account per system = not import friendly.

That truly sucks for the Eu (though at least they are getting it :) )

Great to hear about a retail release for the Americas :D

So SCEE really doesn't want my money. US import it is, then.

I just mentioned it in another thread, Vita 2000 (PCH-2000) still isn't available in most of Europe (except for the UK).
Whoever is responsible for the way PS Vita is handled in Europe does not deserve his or her job.

PS.
64GB memory cards STILL aren't available outside of Asia, which once more forced me to import instead of buying locally. FFS, Sony.

So digital only, on-line pass and may have DLC? Sony can duck right off with that crap as I am not buying the game period.

I am starting to regret going with an European account on my Vita.

Glad I have been 100% digital from day 1 on Vita. Sucks for those who want retail but at least you can import the US version, unless there is some problems with DLC and whatnot?
