    PS4 is region free

    Yoshida: 'PS4 is region free' [update] | Joystiq

    The PlayStation 4 is "region free," according to Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida. At Monday's E3 conference, Sony announced its new console will launch at $399, and comes with "no restrictions" on used games. Afterwards, Yoshida took to Twitter with the extra bit of PS4 news.

    It's unclear if Yoshida's statement indicates the PS4 will be region-free in the same way the PS3 is. The PS3 can play game discs no matter which geographical region they're tied to, minus the sole exception of Persona 4 Arena. There are region-based PlayStation Network restrictions when it comes to downloadable games on the PS3.

    Update: When approached about Yoshida's comment, a Sony Computer Entertainment spokesperson gave us the following statement:

    "In general, neither digital or disc-based games will be region locked, but we recommend users purchase games at the region of their residence to guarantee the best overall consumer experience (eg, customer service). In addition, certain software makers' game titles may be region locked."

    Never expected them to not make it happen.

    Seeing P4A on there makes me laugh every time.

    How much would the shipping from US be? I think heaps of people would be buying from US since the UK price is even higher than AU from currency conversion.
    Kind of annoyed that there is only a 50 dollar gap between the xbone and the ps4 here and 100 in the USA.

    Youll have to hope there are Power cables to suit our sockets available that fit the Ps4 too :p

    well you could always get a converter to sort the power cable problem lol

    and i had a chat with someone from amazon this is what they said

    You are now connected to Gilbert from Amazon.com
    Me:hey i was wondering does amazon ship to australia i added ps4 to cart it says 16.48 shipping charge is that correct?

    Gilbert:Hello orhan, my name is Gilbert. I will be happy to assist you today.
    Amazon does ship to Australia.
    The shipping charges that you see on the "review your order" page are the correct charges.
