    I saw this a moment ago.

    Dick move by Nintendo. Should've said "no" from the beginning.

    WHY NINTENDO WHY DO YOU HATE US

    I can't believe they are doing this to the US. More importantly... I can't believe they normally do this to EUR. WHY when they know these games would sell well?

    Also... didn't they JUST confirm that Zenoblade IS coming out? [​IMG]

    Screw you Nintendo.

    I guess the only way I'll be able to play the game is buy pirating the EU game, or importing it, changing my Wii's region and running it that way although that's too much of a hassle.

    ...I bet this will also effect 3DS and Wii U titles.

    Which fucking pisses me off, because they're both very likely region-locked.

    The Nintendo fanboy army's wrath will be terrible, their retribution swift.

    (by retribution I mean hacking the hell out of every Wii in existence to play the Euro version, of course) [​IMG]

    Is it wrong that I expected this? Except for the Bieber reference by Nintendo, I somehow knew it would end like this. I hope this decision doesn't carry over to the 3DS and WiiU (by not localizing RPGs although with Tales of the Abbys 3D this doesn't seem to be the case)...

    Edit: typo.

    Since I've read people say this twice on this one thread I'll correct it.

    It's "Xenoblade".

    That's why I said both are very likely. We know one half of their 8th-generation platforms is already region locked (3DS). The other is a big question mark, but I'm sure it will be too.

    Now, all we need are the eventual exclusive games that get people pissed to hack those platforms. I know for a fact this WILL happen on 3DS.

    Aren't some of these Wii titles? Wouldn't the be region locked already or can you play PAL games on a US Wii? I was sure that Japanese games don't work on a US Wii.

    Dick move Nintendo. It's not going to help you (you pulling a Namco?)

    How does nintendo effect these titles coming over when they don't own them or make them? Hell one of the titles is from mistwalker a microsoft company.

    Yet, when other games in different genres don't get localized to the US, but say Europe or other areas where the game will be in English, everyone just says "Oh, guess I have to pirated the Eur version." Why should a group of JRPGs get more attention that other games?

    And don't even say "Oh well buying it to support the devs blah blah blah" because you probably wouldn't anyways. If you REALLY want to play the game, you'll either import it, or pirate it, because guess what...That's the only choice you have.

    And I like how Nintendo is being put on the spot, because they're the publishers. What about other companies that don't localize games? Just because Nintendo is bigger, doesn't mean they should get more hate because they aren't giving into a bunch of fanboys whining and spamming their Facebook posts.
