    This is a very bad move. I can see that this will impact the sales for the game. Whoever came up with this decision is a pure dumbass.

    I don’t live I Europe, but even I would like to meet the person who decided that Playstation Vita Pets demanded to get a physical release, but not Freedom Wars, just so I could smack them in the back of the head. Seriously, this is a huge error in judgment on SCEE’s part.

      The questionable decision making towards all things Vita continues…

    Absolutely terrible news- considering dlc will likely be part of this game I’m sorry to say if import is off the table I won’t be buying. A limited release would surely be profitable.

    No dub was bad enough but now our euro bros are getting screwed out of s retail release, bad move don’t keep reminding us how much you support your customers.

    I feel bad for people in the EU wanting to get physical copy of this game. Even if they import from NA, they still won’t get the dlc 🙁 god damn it Sony

    It’s a shame, I hope SCEE reconsiders.

  • Getting a release is better than not, but it does seem very foolish. Especially in light of the first week sales and the NA physical release. Vita needs a more prominent physical presence.

    Digital only = no money from me. Au revoir Freedom Wars.
