We got any word whether the new Wii will be region-locked or not? And should we expect it at TGS?

With the 3DS and recent DS games region-locked (for DSi and 3DS usage), I just don't see the U as a region-free system. Nintendo finally mastered the art, and they're probably not going to stop now.

We probably will not get official confirmation on that this year.

However, expect it to be region-locked, since Nintendo have never released a region-free home console, and since they've switched from region-free handhelds to region-locked handhelds - the 3DS is region locked, and they added region-lock functionality to the DS with DSi-"enhanced" games.

Unfortunately they will probably region lock the U.

Its not Nintendo's responsibility for third part companies to release to all regions or not.
games: PS3: MAG, and many others Wii: SSBB and many others PC: C&C,COD BO,L4D2, and many others.

It is not going to be region free. Wii and 3DS aren't.

I'm not actually 100% sure what you're saying here, but I think you're saying that Nintendo games on Wii and/or 3DS are region free.

If that is actually what you're saying, then unfortunately you are very incorrect. All Wii and 3DS games are region locked - without exception, regardless of publisher.
