GTA 5 DLC confirmed as Rockstar issues region-lock warning

Grand Theft Auto 5 will receive DLC, but Rockstar Games has warned gamers who are thinking about importing the title that additional content bought in one region will not work with a copy of the game bought in another.

This Rockstar Games support page reads, “It is generally recommended that you buy and play games that are designated for your country to avoid potential problems with DLC region-compatibility, such as with pre-order bonuses.

“For example, a North American PS3 GTAV disc (BLUS31156 code on spine of box), Japanese PS3 GTAV disc (BLJM61019 code on the spine of the box) or Asian PS3 disc (BLAS 50639 code on spine of box for Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan. BLKS20442 for Korea) will play on a European PlayStation 3 console.

“However, if you live in Europe (where the GTAV disc code is BLES01807) you will likely have a European PSN account that will not be able to redeem a US pre-order code, and will only be able to download Region 2 (European) DLC, incompatible with non-European discs.”

It was a no-brainer that GTA 5 would get some kind of add-on after launch, but it’s nice to see it there in writing.
