    There's no such thing as a PAL Vita game. Never has been and never will be. Do you perhaps have a region 2 copy?

    Vita Girl, the Vita does not have any explicit regional lockout so that information does not apply to what I was discussing with TheAtom.

    The Vita itself not, but the games have a form of region lock.
    You can play Vita games from any region on a Vita, but the games are locked to the PSN store from the region they are for stuff like DLC.

    So in fact there is still some sort of region lock on the games.

    But that aside, what I mean is that (older) PAL games or NTSC games do still exist, and that a region free system still knows from which region a game is (important for stuff like DLC ect).

    And even while current systems are region free there is nothing wrong with calling a game PAL or NTSC, people know what is what.

    (I call games PAL/NTSC or EU/US, most people know what it means)

    The lockout on the digital content has more to do with complications in licence checks on the PSN system, and isn't in place as an intentional region lockout.

    Oh my bad. I thought that was just a general term to use for a EU region game, which indeed will have an effect on ps store compatibility. If it was confusing in any way, my bad.

    No interest though? I'll probably bring it to the local game shop for it to spend the last of its days there (they don't even HAVE a vita section, I wonder if they'll take it at all)

    I would, but I've already got 2 physical and one digital copy of Freedom Wars. :)

    €15+shipping for your own costs? I tried to have a look on Ebay at what seems to be fair, and that seems to be what most European copies seem to go for :D
