Super Mario 3D Land is already out here in Japan and I want to buy it so bad but I can't because of Nintendo's stupid region lock! ;O;

HA. Wow.

No, I'm not laughing at you, I'm laughing at how crazy that is.

Nintendo can eat my foot for Region Locking.

If they had done that with the original DS I would not have Jump Ultimate Stars.

Douchebags. >=[

Yeah... I really don't understand the region-lock thing.

I've never understood it.

English, Japanese; a game is a game is a game. And more of those available to all people means more potential sales for companies.

Believe me, if someone wants a game badly enough that wasn't released in their country, they'll find a way to play it. Region-free systems means they can without too much hassle, and definitely without potential system damage or death.

Yeah I don't really understand it either.

I'm certainly not buying a Japanese 3DS just to import games.

It's also sort of not fair to consumers.

I WANT to play games like Tales of Graces, Xenoblade, and Pandora's Tower. (to name a few.) But I and you and anyone else in the US can't really do so, since they were only released (ande/or will be) in Japan and Europe.

It would require not only a European Wii (to play legally, anyway.) but some kind of converter thingy since we use NTSC and everywhere else uses PAL.

Oh, you could mod your Wii's and play semi-legally, but then you risk bricking them. I'm not about to do that. (I wouldn't trust myself to try and fix anything I have no knowledge of.)

Yeah I'm not into modding my systems either, I'd love to import a few games from Europe but I won't be doing it for any Nintendo systems any time soon.

Sony continues to be awesome and make it's systems region free though. =D

That is one thing I'll give them. (I don't like to hype any of the three, since I like stuff about all of them... or at least Ninty and Sony. Don't really hate on Microsoft, I'm just not very familiar with them. *shrugs*)

I give credit where it is due, and criticize where it is due.

I like a lot of things about Sony but I'll still call them on their crap.

Microsoft is good at catching and preventing hackers, but they eat your cash.

That aside, as for the ridiculousness of the region lock, I am thoroughly disappointed.

Given that reviewers can be bought off I'm kind of tired of giving them any real credit.
