    BF3 DLC - I Wish I Did My Research...

    So with the $20 PSN card I got for winning the Nero give away thingymajigga, which is awesome by the way, I decided to get myself Back to Karkand for like $15

    So I downloaded it and installed it to my EU account, the one I actually play on... and it turns out, the DLC for BF3 is region locked

    So yeah, that sucks ass! Not even sure why they would do that, they're still earning money either way...

    Yeah I know, I was really looking forward to playing it too.

    I feel bad that I wasted the money someone else could have put to better use...

    Sorry about that Chambers. I don't get the region locking thing. Games aren't region locked so why is the DLC. Like you said you still paid for it so it isn't like you are trying to scam anyone.

    Oh well you didn't know so it's not your fault . Next time you should read the stuff under the download section , I think it might say something there (either EU/US).

    It should check your game first before it lets you download it, like if it detects that the game you have is the wrong region it should give a warning.

    LoL. I was playing BF3 the other day and I killed a guy named chambers35 and I thought to myself if he was on PS3T. Guess I figured it out.

    Not to burst your bubble but I'm sure most, if not all DLC is region locked

    Sucks for you though dude, has it been used? Could give it back to Nero for another giveaway I guess :/

    Blah, first they overprice DLC, then they region lock it? What's next, needing a separate online pass to play DLC online?

    EU DLC only works on EU games and US DLC only works on US games BUT lets say you live in europe and your PS3 is european you can still use US DLC as long as the game matching that DLC is also US...

    I see, but I don't understand what went wrong with Chambers?
    Is checking the BLES code enough? If they both match?

    It's really not that difficult.

    You can play EU dlc on an EU disk.

    You can play US dlc on a US disk.

    You can play JAP dlc on a JAP disk.

    It doesn't matter what region you're playing from.

    The only difference is what region your account is set to

    That they only care about their own country and don't care about other countries. They could have sent Chambers an EU PSN card, but they just don't care.

    Dude, now you're just talking out of your ass. That is borderline the dumbest statement I've ever read. Think before you type

    This happened when Wab downloaded the Onslaught DLC for Bad Company 2 off me, it wouln't work as he'd got his game from US.



    I don't understand why, or what the point of region locking is for, but it seems pointless to me.
