    Pretty much this. Next Nintendo handheld won't have a charger, digital only instruction booklet, and you gotta buy your stylus separately.

    As for the topic! Nah, they'll just make the game slots different per region, so even if you do get some sort of home brew and get software region free, it won't be able to bypass the hard region free! Kinda like Snes region lock! :P

    2. Region locking a handheld in the first place makes no sense at all, it's what Nintendo do best.

    No. Nintendo will do anything to make a quick buck, and making a console region free would result in them losing money.

    I'm still waiting for the "rumored" Metroid game that was supposed to be released for the Wii U.

    Please don't pretend you know my feelings better than me. It's needlessly arrogant and doesn't help the discussion. I just want to hear people's reasons for why nintendo might or might not do it and talk about it (which means: replying to one another). I'm fine with us disagreeing on the topic, but jeez...keep it civil, will you?

    Please forgive me for interjecting, but I have to point out that saying things like "Sorry...you're not important enough to me to become upset over your ignorance" seems to be rather escalatory. I know that in normal conversation it would be considered inflammatory. At the very least, can you see how it could be considered aggressive language?

    I do see that, yes. And yes, I'm now sorry that I posted it like that.

    Region locking is both nonsensical and bad for us gamers, so it certainly should be but Nintendo is super weird about shit like that so if I had to guess, I'd say no. Prove pessimists like me wrong Nintendo!

    I personally doubt it, but seriously though Nintendo must take a note from Sony or Microsoft.

    I have my doubts. Nintendo tends to be traditional and stubborn.

    Nope. Knowing Nintendo, it'll never happen.

    This is a reason why lots of people buy cards like Gateway or Sky3ds.
    How do I know?


    I'm one of them.
