    I heard that Nintendo DSi retail games (not Nintendo DSiWare) is region-locked for the Nintendo DSi. Is that true?

    Do you not read the forum at all?!


    There are NO DEDICATED JUST FOR THE DSi games out there other than the downloadable DSiware! (DSiware IS region locked)

    What there is are a few recent DS games with extra features that are only available when using them in a DSi!

    All the rest are just plain standard DS games which are NOT REGION LOCKED ...As is the DS both Lite and Phat and DSi are not REGION LOCKED consoles for these standard games [​IMG]

    Well, I created this topic if this is true about the Nintendo DSi retail games. It could be played region free in the flashcart (I guess), and on the original Nintendo DS and Nintendo DS Lite. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    DSi Exclusive game will be out soon just not now.
    Copied from Nintendo:

    [Is the Nintendo DSi internationally compatible?]
    Because the Nintendo DSi utilizes region encoding, international compatibility is limited.

    Nintendo DSi exclusive game cards
    Nintendo DSi game cards that are only compatible with Nintendo DSi (and not Nintendo DS or Nintendo DS Lite) are region locked. This means Nintendo DSi-specific game cards manufactured for the U.S. market would not work in a system made for another country.

    That is true, but have you read the forums? I don't think so.

    I have to admit, you have become a better member now (not using Arial anymore, and being polite and all that)

    I really, really hope you become a nice , helpful member. I really do.
