    Yes you are right, there are regions of games. E is Europe, U is USA, J is Japan.

    The differences in E and U are made by the developer, sometimes the Europe has more languages than USA version, sometimes they have different names, slightly different translations of English etc.

    I think the only difference is the wifi. I'm not 100% positive, but if you have a E game and you select the region option or w/e it is, I'm pretty sure, that it'll search europe, so if your in America, there might be lag.

    And everything xjonny said

    It also depends on the game. In Mario Kart DS for example, you could search continental or worldwide. It obviously took longer to search worldwide. Some games might just have continental/worldwide though.

    Thanks for the quick replies, I was going through a bunch of roms and I saw I have like 3 different versions of the same game taking up valuable HD space : )

    Yeah, you can probably get rid of the ones you don't need in that case. Alternatively, if you compress them with 7zip it will automatically determine that they're virtually the same thing, so they will compress very well. I've seen 7zip files containing 10 different versions of the same SNES game, the entire thing taking up less than the size of a single one of them uncompressed.
