You don't know how daft they are? Just search any popular gaming forums, and you'll find hundreds of topics on this exact issue, and how no one likes it.

Yesterday when I was telling another friend about my hate for "N" after this announcement, he asked why I didn't just import like he's known me to do hundreds of times over the years, and I had to explain how the 3DS was region locked, and his question was the same as yours.

Why, when all their past systems have not been. This is what they now do, and why their business is so in the toilet. Every other major system or console is region free, but not "N".



...Wow. I never even thought about it, I just assumed the handhelds were still region free, it just seemed like common sense.

Oh well, I guess now I can spend that money on retro games instead.

Great video clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-uPR8gLQbQI

Starting at about 2 minutes, these guys discuss how the new XL is more of the same really, and how the new standard one is the biggest improvement all around and how EVERYONE in their office is opting for the smaller unit(of course they are, it's the better choice overall IMO).

More proof that NOA has their heads so deep in the cave(ass), there's no way to ever see the light. NOE sales systems online, and offer choices. Reggie always gives shit excuses on how retailers don't have room for tons of SKU's, well guess what? You clowns do.

Sale as much shit as you can store in a HUGE warehouse some where and collect funds from all over the states for as long as you have inventory. WTF is Club Nintendo for? Offer special items and system there. How fucking hard is that? Why does ever major region except America operate in a sensible way?

That pictures a classic, but I like the ones where Reggie is shrugging his shoulders more. LOL

Sadly, there are way to many pictures like this out there to choose from.

I don't think I have seen the picture in question. I do agree there are plenty of pics to choose from though

Summary: A guy swapped the CPU and flash from a US New 3DS XL into a Japanese New 3DS.

The place I work for probably has the stuff to do this, but I doubt if they'd ever let me do it...
