ARushAndAPush commented on Talking Point: It's Time for Nintendo to Drop ...:

My attitude is, Region Free would be nice to have, but it isn't a big issue. For me, an account system matters far more.

The fact is, if my 3DS / Wii U went region free tomorrow, I can't think of a single game that I'd want to play that wouldn't require me learning Japanese - especially as I can't even afford all the games I want to play in my own language.

Nintendo is now releasing games in a timely manner. Pokemon is even getting a worldwide release date, for example. Even niche stuff like Project X Zone and Bravely Default is getting localised.

Also, anyone who thinks that Nintendo is the most anti consumer of the three console makers is silly. Nintendo are now the only company with:

Full native backwards compatibility, (You can play DS games on a 3DS, Wii games on a Wii U. Good luck trying to play PS3 games on PS4 or 360 games on the XB1.)
Digital purchases transferring over to a new generation of hardware. (The games I bought from the Wii Shop are still playable on Wii U.)
Free online play. (Sony and Microsoft both now charge a monthly fee.)
