    I'm French and I have an American 3DS. I totally understand why games and their 3DS download play feature are not region free. But why the hell is the local multiplayer and street pass of DOA not region free when Street Fighter 4 was... I'm really disappointed... If all future games are like this my 3DS is useless...

    until the 3DS is hacked or something... I don't think there's much you can do... other than get an European 3DS.

    I always bought imported video games because in Europe games are more expensive and released later. Well it seems that has changed for the 3DS...American 3DS games are released one day later than European release.
    This means that if you travel you can't play against people you meet in other countries : that's stupid. I hope this will be the only game like that because street pass plaza and SF4 have no problems to connect with different region 3ds.

    This, and because I was in New York for the 3DS launch event. It was great to see Reggie by the way!

    Yes you can play online mode with anybody in the world. But not in local wifi multiplayer...
