Shuhei Yoshida, President of Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios has confirmed PlayStation 4 to be region-free for games.
The confirmation came through his official Twitter account last night; following Brad Douglas, responsible for Sony’s third-party relations, who also announced the feature on his Twitter account.
Yoshida then followed up the announcement with the revelation that PlayStation 4’s hard drive will be upgradable, just like with the PlayStation 3.
Sony took a leap over rival Microsoft earlier at E3 by announcing their console a whole $100 cheaper than Microsoft’s Xbox One. Not only that but Sony came out confirming that they would be sticking to the traditional handling of used-games, there would be no always-online crapper and basically every basic necessity that gamers would have wanted to carry forward from the PS3 was confirmed for the PS4.
The only one new thing people came to know about was that Sony would now be charging for their PlayStation Network services.
PlayStation 4 will launch this Christmas in Europe and North America for 399 USD / Euros or £349 GBP.
