Can someone explain to me the purpose of region locking?

They do it to price gouge and stop importing practices. Nintendo must have done it on purpose to increase their sales since you would need to buy multiple 3DSs to play games from the 3 main regions.

A bit strange as every other Nintendo handheld was region free until DSi.
