Nintendo comparable to Microsoft regarding anti-consumer practices?
Region-locking isn't anti-consumer, and even if it was, its only minorly so.
Only a small sub-group of people actively import games. It may burn a hole into their wallet to have to purchase a console for every region, but I suppose thats what Nintendo wants.
Its inconvenient and a rather outdated practice.

Nintendo has also shown that they're willing to localize those games that the fans DO ask for. I for one am glad that it turned out this way, so that I can play games in a language that I actually understand.
But if that's important to you, you can always import a Japanese console.

The EndRegionLock campaign didn't even end.
If they planned to give up at the first answer it would have been pointless to even start doing it.

With recent news about Nintendo rejecting its fans regarding the request to remove region lock from Wii U and 3DS, I'm beginning to lose support for them. These business practices are comparable to what Microsoft tried to do with Xbox One before they backpedaled.
Removing backward compatibility and charging for online services should be criminal act if region locking is considered to be on same level as M$ and Sony
Sounds fun, too bad no one outside of Japan will never be able to play it. Region lock is really bad.
Buy a Japanese Wii then
I only need to read the title to know the answer to this question.
No. Just... No.
I kinda like to imagine that all Voice-Actors are reality-jumping individuals basically stuck in a Quantum Leap situation.
