Lyndzi commented on Soapbox: Why Region Locking Is A Total Non-Issue:

Firstly I do agree to some extent with regards to this article ie age restrictions, but it shouldn't be based on the fact that people want to import from Japan. This is not the case!! What about importing from the US? As a 32 year old female gamer I find a lot of the 3ds games in Europe to be very child orientated, especially in the stores. I find many games that are appealing to me are not available in the UK or Ireland, and if there were I definitely wouldn't be able to buy them in the shops. I would have to Amazon. So naturally I tend to buy my games whilst holidaying in NA. I find the services from Nintendo America and Nintendo Europe to be completely different too ie stars reward catalogue has far better things in America and not to mention game DLC. Take Animal Crossing New Leaf for example, in the game there is a feature to street pass and feature a streetpass home in your showcase, that's fairly simple to understand. Now here is the problem a lot of Europeans are having, myself included and the reason why I wanted to purchase a NA version of the game. As well as streetpass there is spotpass, spotpass is controlled by Nintendo, they release houses and characters to feature in your showcase just like street pass would but these players are CPU. NA have received around 8+ of these houses from Nintendo America. Europe have received only 1 from Nintendo Europe. So what I'm trying to say is if the region lock is to remain in place then all regions should be treated the same!! Games and dlc should be released across all regions!!
