Gamers initiate massive campaign to end Wii U region-locking
I'm definitely all for this. 3DS as well please.
region locking is a gateway to piracy because a lot of gamers might mod their consoles just to play legally purchased international games. Once that step is out of the way, gamers might turn to piracy. That's why I love that PS3 is region free. I've imported games from Japan, Hong Kong, and the UK.
MH3U got a patch that lets people from different regions play together, so it's definitely possible. Don't know how possible (they'd need to do something like that with every game, including single-player games for people that import) but it's there.
There isn't any real justification for Nintendo to keep Region Locking. They really do need to get rid of it, I wanna play Disaster: Day of Crisis dammit!
region free nintendo! So i can buy me some imported 3ds games!
Just like DS again good! ^,..,^
