    From the original GameBoy to the Nintendo DS, Nintendo's handheld game consoles were never region locked, which means you could buy a game in Japan and enjoy it on your European or American console and vice-versa.

    Needless to say the news and the perspective of having to purchase multiple systems to enjoy games from different regions isn't to the liking of most gamers around here. Post your thoughts in the discussion thread linked below.
