If you have no problem buying a game online before it comes out in a store near you. Why wouldn't you just buy the different region console? I assume its the US games people buy because they tend to come out first. But that is not nearly always the case. Still if the games you buy are always US then just buy a US console in the first place and you can still buy the digital crap that you always could now you have the ability to play games purchased through eBay.
