Expat gamers got the news they were hoping for earlier today with the announcement that PS4 will be region free.
Sony’s Shuhei Yoshida announced the news on Twitter, shortly after his E3 appearance.
And yes, PS4 is region free 😀

This more or less makes the Playstation 4 the console of choice by default for expats, since the Xbox One and Wii U both feature region locking, making it impossible to play games from different regions.
We’re really happy with this news, and looking forward to getting our hands on some of the next-gen titles that have been on display at E3.
