So I updated my PSP and went to go check out the comic book reader, a feature I've been really excited about for a while now.
It just doesn't appear on my PSP. I made sure I have the update and yeah, everything is there, but simply no comic book reader.
Then that sinking feeling dawned on me. I have a PSP I bought in Taiwan.. I sincerely hope this thing is not region locked...
Can anyone shed some light on this?
Ok, I was able to use the redemption codes, and download, the free comics on my wife's Japanese import PSP. However, according to the Japanese website, the comic book reader for them does not come out until December 10th. So I will not know until then if it actually "works" or not.
Funny, usually Japan get the goodies before us.
Wait, so on December 10th, my Japanese PSP (Which I'm using in English) will suddenly show the comic book reader option in the XMB? And then I can read comic books from the US store?
Ummm yep........ we will know soon enough.
Please stop making Firmware updates mandatory so those of us not in the regions for the "exciting" new features dont have to update for no reason. Was excited about this one till I saw that yet again its useless here in Canada.
How about this:
Please quit with the idiotic region locking bulls***. It doesn't stop anything, many users get around it in various ways, it simply creates an inconvenience.
It provides no benefit to you other than stopping some users from buying a product legitimately.
It promotes piracy and also destroys a lot of good will toward the company.
Please find the person responsible for the whole region locking idea and stab them in the face repeatedly with a wooden spoon.
