I finally got a guitar bundle of Guitar Hero World Tour. My excitement was tempered by the fact that it’s a Region 4 release. What this means is that I won’t be able to buy any kind of downloadable content from the US Playstation store.
Apparently, DLC’s are region-specific, so if you have a region 4 disc, like I do, then tough luck. You’ll have to find a way of buying content from the Australian Playstation store. I think this is one of the things that Sony has to work on soon. True compatibility is so dismal that something as simple as downloading content should not be a problem anymore. I don’t know the logic of Sony for making content region-specific, it just makes it harder to buy stuff and it’s also a big letdown for certain countries that won’t be able to buy content from other regional stores. I really think Sony dropped the ball on this one.
