PS Vita to Be Region-Free

I’m probably going to file this under the “definitely maybe” section. According to Engadget, Sony’s new handheld will be region-free, just like it’s big brother, the PS3, and its hardware prequel, the PSP. That means you can play awesome games that only come out in Japan on your cheaper American system. Promises like this have been broken before though, so I’m taking it with a grain of salt. The Wii was supposed to be region-free, too. But then Nintendo somehow forgot to not put that extra “screw you” code into the firmware. I want to play Captain Rainbow, dammit.
