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

Doing some serious necroposting here:

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.
I am more a battlefield than a Ninja.

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.
