Just thought I would create this thread to let European players know that this game is confirmed to be region free so you can import it and not have to wait for 2 months. Play-Asia has confirmed this. Here is the link:

What about my Death Magnetic DLC? That DLC is surely PAL content where as the game is still NTSC? Am I right on this thinking that they won't work together. I think I might be totally wrong but you never know.

Cool, I can't wait until May to get this. Is play-asia decent to buy from?! Would I actually receive my product etc? Sorry for being off topic.

I don't actually know myself, I haven't ordered from them before but I am getting this game from them. I have heard on this website before that they are reliable so thats why I am giving them a try.

It isn't cheap though (costs nearly 50 in total) but is worth the extra money to get it early especially with me being a big Metallica fan. The site also says it will take 5-10 days to recieve the game.

play-asia is a decent site to get games from but also beware because the game comes through customs. Customs may open it up, rpackage it and charge you the fee for it. as they do random spot checks on items to see if they really are what they are. i had this happen a few times with items. But i did also have a 20 fee for some sort of custom charge not sure what it was for though, the last time i got a game from play asia. so be warned of evil customs.

So if I keep at least 70 held back, then I should be OK. :)

Definitely ordering this from them, like... Now! Or now! Or when I've done being an idiot typing this post!

Seriously... Now!

EDIT: Oh wait, dammit, I get paid on Saturday, I'll have to order it then. :(

I can't be 100% affirmative but my GH3 and GHWT games where NTSC and my PAL DLCs are working fine.

DLC seems to be "region free" as well.

Wow, Play-Asia have shipped my game out today! Even though the game releases in the U.S on Sunday I believe. I certainly recommend Play-Asia now, should get it early next week hopefully. No two month wait for me lol.

Games will not be in stock until March 28th. So you will probably have to wait a few shipping days after that.

Great for Europeans who want the game now! Personally I'll just wait till May, it's only 8 weeks after all.

I thought the free bass-pedal was only for Americans and Canadians?

From Play-Asia?! It depends, from roughly 4 up to 15+ I believe.

So is it just the asian version that is confirmed region-free or are the US & Canada versions the same ?

It's just that alot of Ebay listings for the US & Canada versions are saying that the game is not region-free.

Just want to make sure before i buy. :)

I got it from Play-Asia. Took exactly 2 weeks from when I placed my order to when it was at my house. Around 47, chose the cheapest packing option, was insured but not tracked. If you need to ask anything feel free. Oh and I ordered the US version, works fine on my PAL system.

hopefully it being easter weekend doesnt delay it to much

2 weeks isn't very long man, I've had plenty of other stuff to be busy with so it didn't even seem like a week had gone by ;). But yeah it's definately worth getting before the end of May( Game.co.uk have it down as 29/5/09 release date ).

Cheers to the OP, I shall be ordering mine soon hopefully, I wouldn't get it till my bday otherwise (end of June) so nearly 2months ahead is a great bonus for me:Bounce:

Actually, If it's region free anyway does that mean I can buy the US version from other sites such as Ebay or Amazon?
