Went to Japan on a trip... couldn't buy ANY 3DS games because of Region Lock ;_;

#1gfaqsterPosted 3/13/2014 2:37:54 AM(edited)
BUT I did manage on buying about 6 games for my PS Vita and PSP since those aren't region locked >_>


This makes me really mad. and no I"m not buying another 3DS just to play some games on it.


Gameboy /pocket
Gameboy Color
Gameboy Advance /SP/Micro
Nintendo DS /lite dsi, xl etc.


ALL REGION FREE and I remember importing games for those.


Nintendo 3DS is the 1st Nintendo handheld to be region locked.
Are we going backwards in time?
This doesn't seem like progress to me at all.

As time goes by restrictions should be lifted.

I hate your region lock Nintendo.

The region lock is Nintendo of Europe fault. Blame them.

I don't blame EU gamers.

They never got

Radiant Historia
SMT Strange Journey
Contra 4 DS

So they just imported those Nintendo DS from America.
Now they are punished and forced to wait for SMT 4 to come out still

Not to be THAT guy but going backwards in time would imply going back to region free handhelds. Isnt that what you want?

So yes taking it back in time would be a good thing.
