I'll be moving to Boston next year (From Singapore) for university, and I currently own a PS4 (Will buy a Xbox One when it comes out here in Singapore at the end of the year). Been wondering how the region stuff works. My PSN ID now lists me as from Singapore and I only get access to the Singapore PSN Store (which is disgustingly bad). When I move to Boston, can I just change my region to the US and gain access to the US store? The consoles themselves are region-free, if I'm not wrong.
Thanks. It blows my mind that in the age of the Internet, region still affects so many things. Meanwhile, while Transistor isn't available in the Singapore PSN store, Steam has it for me, region be damned.
Secondly, I mean, for all intents and purposes, most of Activision is pretty much already in that state. Raven & Neversoft were already helping out on Call of Duty games. Now, we lose Neversoft by name and some of those guys have lost their jobs, maybe.
I wouldn't be surprised if Raven gets absorbed into Treyarch or Infinity Ward as well. I think High Moon's on its way there too.
Activision's going down the video game factory path further and further. I think when the time comes, they won't renew their Marvel & Transformers licenses and they'll stick to making Skylanders and Call of Duty, with all hands on deck for those two franchises. Meanwhile, Blizzard will do their thing and they will keep making third party deals when they need to, as with Bungie and Destiny.
Its disgusting, in a way, but it sounds like a sound strategy for them in terms of making money.
Never owned a Playstation anything before this so I literally have zero friends.
