  • Luckily I live in New Zealand so All Access it is then.
  • Japan might have been a good country to implement this in to try and make a dent in that market.
    Unless they make a surprise announcement in the Tokyo Game Show.
  • Could you guys maybe try and get some answers for those of us who bought the original version of All Access with Dell financing? Cause everything on the site about current subscribers upgrading says it requires Citizens and we shouldn't have to apply for another credit line when we already have one.
  • Huh, it's only $816 total in Australia for 24 months, that's actually cheaper than I was expecting.
  • This is how I'll be getting mine, although I doubt I will get one straight away, probably wait until there are some games I'm interested in that are next gen exclusive.
