I am considering purchasing Ninja Gaiden Sigma. I have a Japanese console here in Japan, and the Japanese version of Sigma is much cheaper than the US or Asia version. In addition, it has full English support.
However, I don't know if the DLC from the US will work with this disk. I checked the Hong Kong store and the Asia version DLC says in brackets "Japanese version" ...don't know if it is in English or not. So I am considering purchasing the US DLC, if it would work with the Japanese disk. I heard that DLC from the Playstation stores is no longer region locked. Does anybody know?
I once purchased DLC from the australian store, and It didn't work with my US version of Warhawk, so I want to make sure that the DLC I get will work..
Hopefully someone can assist....
Unfortunately unknown. It is recommended though that you buy from the region of the orginal game.
warhawk, echochrome, GT5p etc are all region locked if you buy the PSN stuff.... so best to buy the right region to begin with.
Yeah I know T_T. Drat indeed.
for intial purchase I highly recommend disc based rather then PSN based as they are not regionally locked...
expansions otoh are locked in many cases T_T so you must buy the local one
It could vary. I've never heard of any region locks until CoD4's map pack. So since they made such a huge deal out of it, maybe the older titles didn't have this problem.
Anyway I'm just guessing.
