What does making the game region free have to do with copy protection?

Making region free releases so far, didn't seem to generate any extra income for Cave. They probably only lost potential paying customers due to it.
Still it makes perfect sense to release the MMP package regionfree, as it's financially irrelevant to them.
It still could generate harm to them, as it lowers the urge to get a J-X360. But I doubt they have any kind strategic thinking...


For me - it was playing the MMP/PS pack that convinced me to get a J-360! Good strategic thinking Asada!

I've asked elsewhere but I'll ask her as well.

Is there any way to fix the messed up ratio of this game when you Tate it?

The game rolls the image through 90 degrees but also rolls the aspect ratio with it, so your screen is Tate'd but the aspect ratio is still 4:3 which leaves you with borders top and bottom.

If you (like me) run the game on a 4:3 screen:
1. Launch the game (I'm running it in 480p)
2. As the game has been loaded, go down into the System settings



3. Turn off the Wide Mode then adjust the zoom until you have a filled screen
4. Enter one of the game modes and start a new game



5. Pause and go to the options and zoom stuff until you're satisfied

Yes, and most US region games will play fine as well.

Nohing different except the occasional region locked US title and you still cannot easily play Japan games on demand titles.

You will need to setup both region Live acxounts.  Once purchased, DLC may be used by all accounts on this console.
