So you spent ~$200 so you could play a game 20 days early? Whatever dude. :/


Not a waste if TC can understand Japanese.

Great, support more corporate greed.

Let's give Nintendo a round of applause for region lock.

I had considered getting a European 3DS to play Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright if it didn't end up being released here, but thankfully I don't have to worry about that now. I could still see myself getting a European 3DS if another game along that I wanted that wasn't going to be released in America, because at least it would still potentially be in English and I could understand it (like if the game was released in the UK or Ireland), and there would be other games I could potentially buy. With the Japanese 3DS, I wouldn't get it, even if there was a game I really wanted that was only released in Japan, just because I don't know Japanese and wouldn't be able to understand it at all.

But, as for the TC, if s/he has the money and wants to spend it that way, it's really up to him/her. So long as you aren't in debt or anything and are generally financially responsible, I don't see why it would be such a bad thing to buy something you really want and will enjoy every once in awhile, even if it's not the most practical purchase.

It's Smash Bros, knowing Japanese is irrelevant. I didn't even mention language, he still spent ~$200 for one game which is coming out in the West 20 days later.

You don't need to know Japanese to enjoy the free cute Japanese girls clock.

Are you at least getting Japanese exclusives? Japanese games are at least 50 to 60 dollars not including the tax that increased. I understand that it's your money but it's also a very expensive hobby.

Now you have the option of buying games that will never get localized.
