    Wow. That's a slap in 3DS' face xD

    Although I have an 3DS I'm still thinking about picking up the NGP.. uhm PSvita.

    Not shocking. [​IMG]

    Importing the games from other countries (especially Japan) would be a killer though.

    Now I hope PSV/PSV games won't be costly in Singapore.

    Also, I can't say this is fully reliable/true, but Nintendo region locked the 3DS mainly for Anti-Piracy measures.

    I love Nintendo, but they really should take a lesson from Sony here and go region free in the future.

    uh no.
    region free doesn't mean the 3DS will get hacked any faster.

    I didn't say my statement was 100% correct. [​IMG]

    But think about it, there was little reason (LITTLE) why region locking on the 3DS seemed logical.

    If the 3DS games were to have an international release (just like the update), that would cover up the region lock issue.

    Anyway, this gives me a reason to get Vita. Now what worries me is the crazy prices Sony Singapore can hatch out with... They just launched their 3D Smart TV 46" on the IT Show for a crazy price of $5,688 with no freebies. [​IMG]

    Next thing you know Nintendo releases a region free 3DSLite, screwing all existing 3DS owners over.

    Nintendo wouldn't do this...would they? [​IMG] Cause aren't the games region locked too similar to the 360?

    couldn't they just update the 3DS to remove the region protection? or is it a hardware thing? [​IMG]

    Good move by Sony, and no it's not a 3DS killer move. We shall see who kills what and how when the PS Vita releases. Does PSV take revenge of its precious PSP or go down with it.

    It's not really considered a good move, but rather an expected move. The Vita can stream easily with PS3. Since PS3 is considered largely region free, the Vita should be as well.

    Best to his knowledge its regionfree?
    Well, that was expected, but it could be optional to developers.
