The Monster Hunter x headphones Vita game Freedom Wars was originally only coming to Europe digitally. This upset some people. Maybe their internet access is limited. Maybe they don't want to spend money on over-priced Vita memory cards. Maybe they just want physical copies.

Well, Sony Europe listened.

"[Y]ou've let us know here on PlayStation Blog, on forums and on social media that you really wanted to see a full title card release for the game. And we've been listening. Duly, today I'm happy to confirm that Freedom Wars will now be made available as a full physical edition as well as a digital release, from day one."
