    DS and DS Lite are Region Free.



    DSi Adds Region locks.

    The region lock on DSi only applies DSiWare and not normal DS games, so saying the DSi has a region lock is not wrong but not entirely true either.

    So True Minox_IX .... I definitely should have specified that it was DSi Specific things like DSiWare that is region locked.

    Since I'm curious...

    Is there any way for a normal DS game to detect the system's region? I'm aware no games are known to do so, but I just mean the possibility.

    I wish the DSiWare is not region locked. [​IMG]
