    3DS WILL BE REGION LOCKED

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news--but if any potential 3DS buyers were hoping that Nintendo would let you play ANY 3DS games, from ANY regions--then looks like you'll be disappointed.

    Nintendo has announced that the 3DS will be Region-Locked.

    This, of course, means that if you buy a 3DS here in the U.S.--that you'll ONLY be able to play 3DS games for THIS region's 3DS.

    Same will go for Europe, and Japan--each Region's 3DS can only each Region's games.

    --This comes as a no-doubter in today's Gaming World, but there were rumors whispering around the Gaming community across the Web that MAYBE 3DS would be non-Region locked...but alas, it'll be just like all of its DS Predecessors.

    This doesn't really matter to me that much, but it would suck for some people.

    When I first saw this on someone's FB status, I was like "Meh I'm not getting one anyway, so much hassle by the looks of it" but he seemed to be soooo heartbroken. So he decided to import his xD
