    it's simple, more money by separating regions (including publishers) and probably control too. that's why companies have offices in different countries usually. comes down to money

    Step 1 - Put Super Mario in the US, sell for $50. People will buy it.
    Step 2 - Put Super Mario in Ethiopia for $20, since they'll buy it at that price but can't afford it at $50.

    Region-locking prevents US people from getting it for $20 by importing.

    As far as programming goes, there is much more to it than just knowing the syntax (that's the easy part), the hard part which comes with experience is knowing how to effectively use the tools you are given to create something useful. Creating new software is absolutely engineering and skill in it comes from experience

    I think Xcution is just herpderping around with his DevMen kit. I don't think this is anything related to Yellows8/neimod's work. Could be wrong.

    People just seem too silly for me. "They don't want piracy because they don't want to hurt the 3DS" I am sorry, but I call this bullshit. If the devs lose money I don't think the hackers could care less, it's not their problem.

    Nintendo don't want the 3DS to be hacked, even if it's just for homebrew. If Nintendo wanted to allow homebrew in the 3DS, they could easily do it themselves. That's why they blocked sudokuhax and the dsiwarehax in the DSi.

    My guess is hackers don't want to be sued and, also, they don't want their own homebrew to face competition from Warez, they want the homebrew developers to be valorized and piracy is in the way. Just think about it, if you had a piracy-free hack wouldn't you want to download a free homebrew game while you don't have the money to buy a retail/eshop game?

    Why are you posting so much in this thread? Why do people post so much non sense to begin with?

    it seems you haven't played TWEWY. The picture is totally referencing it.
    I think it's just a test to show a full, working custom notification.

    stop assuming things too much mate because you know someone loc/race/etc., it tickles, kinda rubbin the wrong side..

    anyway i got my own games I BOUGHT em to show support to deserving RPG's companies , what i want its to be able to load em on SD, all of em so i dont need to change cart everytime. so ya dump my cart and save em to sd type of scenario and most of all, is to be able to load JRPGs. yes regionlock sucks.

    some people should stop thinking that theyre the only one that can afford to buy an airplane. ;)

    I didn't assume anything.
    1: You set your location to the Phillipines. So apparently, that's where I know where you're from.
    2: I said "Maybe he is too young to afford games", not "He is young". I don't know what your age is, I haven't checked.

    but its true as i come from tanzania and here games are $60 or more. Most people's salaries are $600 with the rent being something like $400 and food,electricity etc. Its not plausible for an average joe to buy something at that price. thats why piracy is very rampant here.

    Isn't this example the exact OPPOSITE of what happens? For example, people who purchase in Japan are almost always paying more for products, and this is why Japanese companies are particularly hellbent on region-encoding anime and games. The hardcore Japanese consumer can very easily import from the US and save money. America has one of the cheapest fixed prices for video games in the world, so I doubt this is done to damage US importing.

    Considering I don't think Nintendo even does business in Ethiopia, it was obviously something pulled out of my ass.
