Just wanted to check whether the dsi is region free. Specifically, that my UK dsi will play "999" which, I believe was not released in the uk.

Any help much appreciated, thanks.

The DSi itself is, but DS games are not. It can play any DS game from any region

Grey-cartridge DS games are region-free, so any DS (DSi included) can play them. DSi-enhanced games (black-cartridge) are region-locked, along with DSiWare titles, so those cannot be played by any DS(i), only by those from the same region. If your case specifically regarding 999, because it's not DSi-enhanced (iirc), it should work fine in a UK DS. I know that there was a reissue of 999 late last year, rebranding it in line with it's sequel, Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward; I'm not sure if that version of 999 was released in the UK/Europe (I know the original run was exclusive to NA), but that's irrelevant since it's not DSi-enhanced anyway.

Exactly.
