Let's hope they go from "Strongly considering" to "removal update in mid-2015".
That way there'd be a larger variety of games out there, for the faction that want something like Fatal Frame 4 and can actually understand enough Japanese to enjoy it...

And for the faction that travels and moves a lot. There are some quite nomad professions out there. I'm in one of them.

On the billionth article, just another rumor.
Wishing for no region-lock on Nintendo is like wishing a FFVII remake. Ain't gonna happen.

they are only considering doing it with the wiiu because unlocking it would make no difference. nobody is using it. its like unlocking the NES/FAMICOM.

What can you point to in this article that suggest they are "strongly considering" region unlocking?

If anything the implication is it is not a priority now- otherwise they would be considering now, not "in the future" which is an eternity

Good news, hopefully they remove it eventually.

This would be wonderful. Hopefully they do this.

That relict of the past should have been away a decade ago already on all Nintendo platforms.

Its existence shouldnt even be considered . As long as there is a lock , i wont bother purchasing a 3ds
