@rp17 Correct, i was talking about those clear plastic poles. Lots of Japanese anime figurines also have them and usually it just doesn't look right. And in this case (amiibo) it's not difficult to come up with a pose that doesn't require them.

@chucknorrmis
I 'm still not convinced. A couple of thousand consoles will not make them do anything. Let's say 5000 consoles times 50 bucks (and they don't make 50$ per console) makes 250.000$. That's next to nothing for a multi-national company like Nintendo and certainly not a major reason for region locking.

Oh please... how many people would actually buy a Japanese console to play import games? Even here on NintendoLife it would only be a tiny minority and i'm pretty sure that would not even offset the extra cost of implementing region locks. I sure hope this guy doesn't do any programming because his logic is seriously flawed.

MK Double Dash!!, Rogue Squadron II, Waverace Blue Storm, 1080 Avalanche, WInd Waker... the list of GC classics is pretty impressive in my opinion. First home console i ever bought was a black Cube with Mario Kart. Good times!

A more substantial or higher fence would send the wrong signal and make no difference when someone really wants to enter the grounds. But you can be sure the fence is just the visible perimeter - every inch will be covered by camera, motion detectors and other electronic devices that will pick up anything before it even crosses the fence.

I really wonder why Nintendo insists on releasing so many mediocre NES games that nobody ever asked for. Such a waste of time and effort. Put out the best 20 or 30, ditto for the SNES and then move on to the N64 and Gamecube classics.

The Stamper Bros. at Ultimate Play The Game were essential in development the early British 8 bit home computer scene. They set the standard and produced 100% machine coded and original arcade quality games software when other companies were churning out really awful shovelware They were also the first Western company to notice a quirky new Japanese home console called the Famicom and the threat it posed to their existing business. They sold the Ultimate trademark to Ocean, started Rare and met the challenge.

@Geonjaha
It all depends on HOW they implement this. It would be easy to filter out opponents that have or do not have the DLC. Or they could just replace the Mercedes kart with the default kart if you don't have the DLC. There are more ways to skin a cat (or kart)
