If this game is indeed going to be region free (and we'll have to wait to see for more confirmation), maybe we should get some region-specific forum sections set up. I don't want to encourage a schism in the community, but if there were specific sections for the PAL and NTSC territories, it would help connect people to others who they can share their levels with.

Thoughts?

Good idea...but you probably should have posted that in the Suggestions forum! ;D

Erm... shouldn't this be in the suggestions area?

I think that this could be a bad idea, there are lots of good people in each of the regions, and if Cartmans idea works, we wouldn't even be split up. :)

If LittleBigPlanet is going to be region-locked, then I think we should decide as a forum which region we want to be based in. That way we can all share with each other without any worries.

Yeah, I posted on your thread about this. Hate to say it, but I doubt it'll work.

I disagree, Dropbear. It's not a security measure or anything like that - it's the cost and maintenance of a global server more than anything. They've never blocked an IP address based in the US from accessing the EU or JP store, so I don't think this would work like that either.

Anyway, I wholeheartedly disagree with this. I can't imagine a split forum.

I posted this in the other region thread...

The Uncharted demo was locked, but was opened to everyone later after the huge outburst that ensued.
For them to lock LBP would mean an even bigger outburst.

Split forum?
No way.
What's the point of a community of people gathered to share about one game if they're split up?

I'm so glad this isn't needed anymore. Everybody can go back to relaxing. :)

Good thing we don't have to worry about this
