Black and White 2 region locked on DSi and 3DS!

Bottom line of news.

Is this true? And if so, why the heck is it only on DSi and 3DS?

Region-lock is in the software itself, but the DS and DS Lite aren't designed to recognize it. This also means that region free games (any DS game that isn't DSi-enhanced) are still region free on the DSi and 3DS, and theoretically there could be region free 3DS games.

This doesn't qualify as news. Are there any DSi/3DS games that are not region-locked? >_>

DSi and 3DS games are region locked because of software ratings I think.
