DSi software will be locked to region

DSi-Only Software Will Be Region Locked

Say goodbye to the region free handheld gaming of before. Nintendo had always been region free when it came to their handhelds and now they will implement the lock due to its “internet features”. Huh?! I thought them internets were all the same wherever we went?

Let’s just hope they don’t release something cool in Japan that we can’t get on the North American version of the DSi. I also hope that the physical games will still be region free.

One thing I don’t get with the region locks in any console is the fact that the language barrier alone is already a turn off from buying let’s say the latest Bleach game. But I’m a fan and has a basic knowledge of gaming hiragana and katakan. Wouldn’t me purchasing the game be of any help to the game? If the developer would like it to be restricted to region, they can always build that in. But as for me I prefer region free gaming so I’m not always stuck with North American games.
