262w ago - This week marks the end of the brutal end-of-year release period. We're ending on a high note with Prince of Persia's worldwide release.
We've been looking forward to this one for quite some time, so hopefully it'll live up to expectations. Here's the full release list:
US Games • SingStar ABBA
• Prince of Persia (free Limited Edition upgrade)
EU Games • Prince of Persia
• Brain Challenge
Asian Games • Brain Challenge
• Prince of Persia
• Pro Yakyuu Spirits 5 Kanzenban
• Saints Row 2
PS3 games are region free, so go ahead and import any games you fancy. Try to keep in mind, however, that DLC is always region locked. So your US game will only read content downloaded from the US PSN Store.
Finally, Prince of Persia has been confirmed to have DLC coming in the future. Release dates are constantly subject to change, so check with your local retailer if you have any worries.
