Region locking when setting up Viveport - This is not cool.

Just getting around to setting up Viveport, and apparently, once I set my location it is permanently locked to that region on my account and can't be changed. 

This is garbage. The Vive has a large, active community of developers in Japan and China, and I want to be able to access apps and games sold on the Viveport store from those regions. 

We need to pressure HTC to reverse this ridiculousness and let us choose to purchase software from whatever region we like, or failing that, find an alternative method of acquiring games and apps for the Vive from other regions. 

If anyone has an alternative solution I'd love to hear about it, because until HTC allows us to switch our region whenever we like, I'll not be using Viveport.

Bumping because this is important. Is anyone else aware of a Japanese or Chinese marketplace for Vive software and games?
