FEATURED VOXPOP samsmith614 Since game design is a business, I decided to see what's really selling well for the PS4.

3DS Region Locking Makes Us a Sad Panda

When I used to work at Best Buy, every once in a while, you'd walk by the racks of Nintendo DS games and see an imported cartridge. It was like someone dropped a $20 on floor... except you had to pay for it.

I mean, of course half of the time it was an import cart of something kind of stupid, like a Shonen Jump fighting game...

Alright, it was something cool every time. It was nice knowing some random gem could come in the store and it would still work on your American DS.

Of course, region locking consoles means more control for platform holders and publishers. Take away freedom and you get money. That's how the Republican mind works, you see?

It should come as no surprise then that Nintendo's recent DSi and DSi XL region locking will carry through to the Nintendo 3DS. Of course, that's what a Korean website basing their story off of a call from a Japanese consumer to Nintendo Customer support is saying.

That might be pretty shaky confirmation, but I'd still take the odds and make a bet on it. $10 anyone? Seriously, if anyone is willing to bet the 3DS isn't region locked, I'll take it.
