    hey guys,

    I followed a bunch of sites last night for the press release and i was bummed to hear that Australia didnt even get a mention [​IMG]

    We have PAL for a region code, the same as Europe, so i would be safe ordering one from europe? I'd get a nice discount too cause of our dollar [​IMG]

    I hate being last to get everything its kinda annoying, and they always jack the price up too [​IMG] but my USB loader wii makes me feel a little better about being left out

    thanks!

    The Australia has a separate region for the DSi so I think it will be region locked.

    It's probably locked by ratings bodies.
