I'm sick and tired of region locking, and not a month go by without me wondering why we don't get a release in Europe.
Maybe I'm just seeing things, but I'm under the impression US has a lot more games available to them than us Europeans.
Therefor I'm thinking about importing a US 3DS XL, switch and never look back (not planning on walking around with two region consoles, just aint my style).

Anyone else thinking about this or have done this?

No need to get rid of your European 3DS. You don't really need to carry around both consoles.

Back to the basics.

Oh look! A Morphloggery.
Oh! eShop Gurus.

Which America is getting in only a few weeks if not less, You could always hack your 3DS but you may want to go on and just buy a U.S 3DS.

Lifes like a game there are those who are good at it and those who need some practice.

i was thinking of buying a used uk 3ds so i could play a few games we don't get here as well. I was going to just keep them both though. I couldn't part with my regular 3ds xl

We're getting that while there is still no word of SMTIV making it over to Europe. And I believe it was just confirmed that Rune Factory 4 isnt making it over there either.

Nintendo should really reconsider these anti-consumer practices.

Four more months until Bayonetta 2.

I think an american 3DS would only be worth for someone in Europe if he/she decides to go all digital(or finds a cheap way to import games)

My Dad brought my GBA at launch when I was visiting my nan just cause it cost less plus around 80% of my games were brought in the US, I did this again for the DS just so I could play it months earlier made my mates ridiculously jealous sometimes importing has its benefits.
