I will be playing this on a Vita, so I have no problems with the game not being released with a UMD.

No Canada makes me sad.

How the fuck do you skip Canada? Is this just some delayed thing, or a badly written contract they won't bother to fix?

Wow, this really came out of left field! I was pretty excited about this a year ago before my hope completely dwindled without hearing so much as a peep about it.

Too bad its only digital too, not that I can really expect much else at this point. This totally had the potential of being a an awesome LE with all the cool BRS figurines and whatnot.

In any event, this is certainly one I will get to in time. I highly doubt I'm gonna make it a day 1 priority though. It never does seem as pressing for me to get to it when its download-only.
In this world is the destiny of mankind controlled by some transcedental entity or law? is it like the hand of god hovering above? Perhaps Man has no control even over his own will…

Press release states copyright issues for Canada and Mexico not getting it.

Looks like I'll have to borrow a US PSP or something. Rarely do I want NISA games and then this happens.

There isn't any region locking on the PSP.  What I imagine you need would just be a US account or a US address or something.

Yeah, exactly. I doubt you'll have a hard time getting around this.

I don't see any copyright registration for Black Rock Shooter in Canada =/

My post was supposed to say copyright issues (restrictions that is). Not issued. Meaning yeah, they probably couldn't copyright it in those areas and not release the game there. :P

And yes, I know I can still get it. It's just inconvenient/kind of harder to get. I've never messed around with more than one PSN account either.

It's a great idea if you have an interest in importing, getting free JP demos of stuff that will never get localized is a cinch.

I have absolutely zero interest in importing, otherwise I would have looked into multiple/other region accounts ages ago...

Plus this kind of thing (US but no Canada) never happens.

The PSP is a little weird because accounts aren't tied into the system the way they are on the PS3 and Vita.  You basically have your PSN log-in credentials and what acount the system is activated under, but they can be completely different.

What I used to do with my PSP was just do all my downloading on my PS3 (which easily supports multiple accounts), and then when I copied the game over to the PSP it gives the option to change its activation right then if they don't match up.  You can access the store directly from a PSP, of course, but it wasn't really made with multiple accounts in mind so you would have to manually re-enter everything whever you changed back and forth.

Of course it's still easier to swap accounts on a PSP than the Vita, grr.

Yes and yes. I enjoy it enough, though like Fate/Extra, it has some questionable design decisions.
(Like, why can't I preempt enemies on the field?)

It's fun enough, and the music is great. I like the aesthetics of the game as well.
