Let’s say there’s a new console coming out that you’ve totally got your eye on. It’s a groovy piece of kit, it’s reasonably priced and it’s got a bunch of games you want to play. You’ve got your money saved up and you’re just ticking off the calendar days until its launch.
And then you find out it’s region locked.
What now? Do you buy the console anyway and resign yourself to the fact that you won’t be importing any games you otherwise would have bought in a heartbeat? Do you mod your console so that it will play import games? Do you even care about import games in the first place?
Maybe region locking is such a deal breaker that you flat-out refuse to buy the console. Or maybe you’re hardcore and will import an additional console to play a different territory’s games.
Such is the subject of this week’s poll, folks. Keep in mind, I’m not necessarily referring to the Wii U. Maybe you’re a Sony gamer through and through and are waiting on pins and needles for the PlayStation 4. How would you react if it turns out the PS4 is region locked?
Vote in the poll and let us know. Write spiffy comments in the ever so appropriately named “Comments” section. Send us email at SuperPACPodcast@gmail.com. Make sure you finish your homework before you play video games into the wee small hours of the morning. Brush your teeth before you finally go to bed. Did you remember to let the dog out? Maybe that’s why there’s a puddle by the back door.
Sorry. Where was I?
Oh yes. We’ll discuss the poll results and your comments on the next week’s Super Podcast Action Committee and so get cracking! The poll closes sometime this weekend. Tick tock, tick tock…
