Stranglehold no longer region locked


sholdrf.jpgAfter cries on Midway’s official boards the company had a change of heart and decided to release the game without region coding. This means if you’re in Europe, Asia or wherever you can import the limited edition version of the game, which comes with the Blu-ray movie Hardboiled on the disc.


I’m glad Midway went the region free route. I wouldn’t want Stranglehold to be a precedent for region locked Playstation 3 games or (gasp) region locked portable games. Also something else to note is there are a significant amount of gamers who want their software without region locks. Maybe not enough to sway for a region free Wii, but there are enough voices to make Midway care.
