I was about to buy Persona 4 Arena using my U.S. account and download it to my Asian PS3. But thanks that I checked this forum before it's too late. I'm not gonna buy something that's not playable.
So yeah bought Persona 4 Arena 1-2 days ago and can't play it because of region lock.
What annoy me though is that I found 2 post by people that have the same situation as me back in last February and march. and Sony still have the gut to sell this game without any mention of the region lock, and even worse its on SALE! TWICE!
I just hope that they try to fix a solution for this or at least put a damned region lock warning on that game.
Here is a good suggestion from one of disappointed customer:
Note to SONY: If you are going to allow this region locking crap, at least have the decency to do what Microsoft does on Xbox LIVE, block the console from purchasing the game at all, so at least the user cannot waste money on an unplayable game. The fact that user is told nothing on PSN until the game is purchased is inexcusable.
