, Sega plans to region-lock the title which is quite unusual for a PS3 game indeed.
To quote: "Unsurprisingly, we were told that the Japanese version would not be region free, meaning that North American and European consoles won't play import copies. The reason? It would impact sales of the game outside of Japan, we were told.
That's not that uncommon for Japanese Xbox 360 releases. The vast majority of games released in Japan for Microsoft's box won't play on anything but Japanese consoles. But the PlayStation 3 version? The games are almost all (thankfully) region-free. Locking down that version would be an unusual move on Sega's part."
Below is a 10-minute sneak peek at the upcoming action title developed by Platinum Games. Bayonetta is set for European and North American release in January 2010 on Sony's PlayStation 3 and the Microsoft XBox 360 console.
