    This is only one month after Japan release & who knows how long before North America and Europe release.

    Is that Australian dollars?

    EDIT: WiiU's thread says it's Australian dollars.

    Aus and EU are cross compatible for games, but what about connectivity? Is there an Australia specific eShop, and can an Australian 3DS interact with a European one, eg. for system transfer?

    In EU/PAL systems you can set your region to anywhere in PAL territories and it will access the eshop for that region so long as you have an IP address to match.

    I have used the UK eshop before the NNID update, but you should be able to use a UK NNID on it.

    They're called "Dollarydoos."

    Some people are so culturally ignorant.

    No plans to release in EU / US? What? Why? Surely those are bigger markets than Australia and surely it's not simply geographical distance that prevents them from shipping to the US. How much more could it possibly cost?

    Australia is waaaaay smaller than all of America and all of Europe.

    So they can probably only supply Australias units first.

    This says absolutely nothing about there being no plans to release in other regions. It's practically guaranteed to release elsewhere. Why Australia get it's own announcement is beyond me, but this definitely doesn't say "no" to anywhere else :rolleyes:

    Spare me your roll-eyes, he specifically said 'no plans to release in America or Europe in 2014'.

    Obviously the console will be sold outside of Japan and Australia eventually, but I was confused as to why that will happen significantly later.

    In 2014. We were already aware it wasn't going to be released this year, the initial announcement said basically the same thing, with an expected release in 2015 :rolleyes:

    Oh, how stupid of me not to have followed the news surrounding the new Gameboy.

    Boy is my face ever so red!

    yellows8 confirmed on irc that Australian and European 3DS are identical apart from the user-set region.
