    Question Does games in Germany have English language as optional?

    UPDATE:
    I changed the subject to more specific:

    Does games in Germany have English language as optional?


    -----------------
    Hi,

    PSN is not available in my country. So I need to import games anyway. Some titles are cheaper (now) in Germany.
    I preordered PS4 and Killzone Shadow Fall from there.

    Am I at risk getting a non English version of a game? (menus, sounds etc.).
    Really wouldn't like to get a game in German language.



    PS: Was you able to change from German to English in PS3 titles bought in non English speaking countries?


    Thanks!!!

    Nordic versions of games include English as well as Nordic languages.
    I assume the same goes for German versions.

    I'd expect all games sold in the EU to have English at least as a secondary language option.

    Except in France. They had to remove English because Frenchmen literally refused to touch games containing English inside. lol

    LOL, I wouldn't put it past them, but I've purchased video games while in France (My company has an office in Nice) and they've all had English options. Unless things have changed recently, which I'm sure I would have heard about. I know a lot of US X-pats working over in our France office.

    I'm from Germany; I don't have a ps3 but a Vita. For this console I can confirm that English language is available (at least I know this was the case at Killzone Mercenary, but I'm sure this goes for all games).

    Same with my order. ....I've also ordered a regular ps4 and additional camera and controller before; will cancel the order that comes late. B)

    I'm from Germany as well and can confirm that it's a mixed bag. Most of the games do, in fact, come with English options but there are also those that don't, like Dishonored. I found that out the hard way.

    So always do some research before you buy.

    I was just messing around.
    I like France as much as they hate English. lol

    I sent Amazon.de a question. Let's hope they will answer.

    Bad news for English speaking guys in Germany.
    Got the answer from Amazon.de regarding KZ+camera+ds4 bundle. And the answer is:

    The Game Killzone: SF comes only in German language.
    Well.. to risk or cancel the preorder? That's the question.

    I'm in Austria. Wrath is right; it's a mixed bag. I would say 95% of games will let you use english but Bethesda games usually don't so Fallout, Skyrim and Dishonored etc won't and you'll have to use the game's native language.

    Keep the order and sell KZ afterwards. ..should still be cheaper (at least if you want to have the camera plus extra controller anyway).

    You are right - I'm planning to have second controller and camera. Eventually.

    I'm just not the eBay type of the guy. Not sure I will have time and creativity selling a German game being not in Germany Of course.. selling a launch title half the price would not be hard. But I'm not sure it is worth the time I'd invest in this.

    Now I have tested it on AC4BF (physical copy) and BF4 (download version) and can confirm:

    Language is tge one you choose in system options, no matter where you bought the game.
