Region free Vita looking likely

The PS Vita is likely to stick with PSP and PS3’s region free roots,  IGN is reporting.

Sony’s Vice President of Sony Worldwide Studios Europe, Michael Denny, told the site that, to the best of his knowledge, the handheld would indeed be region free.

That opens the Vita up for imports as well as purchasing games of off other PSN regions. Sony still remains the only console manufacturer to use region free systems.
