Did you read that full article explaining what's going on? This concerns products made and authorized for sale only in another country., like if you choose to pick up an MP3 player while you're visiting Hong Kong since it's a bit cheaper than it is at home, and then you try to resell it a few years later after you've replaced it. It's not going to make selling any used Nintendo device illegal, it's going to make selling an imported Nintendo device illegal. If you import an EU 3DS and then try to sell it down the line, that's where you could run into trouble.

It's still going to impact many of us who choose to import items from other countries for our homes and daily lives, and I don't think it's going to hold water in court down the line when some judge realizes he can't legally sell his mansion with its imported-from-Italy fixtures and such without getting permission from the copyright holders for said fixtures. but it's not going to put a fork in GameStop or Best Buy's used device sales by any means, and it has no bearing on your average everyday iPod or smartphone. I'd say the antiques world is going to be the ones in real trouble if that passes and people actually start enforcing it.

@Mickeymac: improperly cooked snails are quite dangerous, actually — you can wind up with parasites. Also, regarding snails as a food source, i know apple snails were introduced to Taiwan and are now a major threat to rice farming and indigenous wildlife. They're also a threat to taro production in Hawaii (again, introduced as a potential food source) and to agriculture in the US as well. There's nothing wrong with the idea of eating snails IMO, but there are other things to be considered in terms of having them as a major food source (or even as a pet; that's the only reason i know all this D: )

Guys, I made the mistake of biting at his bait last night, and I apologize for getting it going up in here, but fair warning: I can tell you for an absolute fact that nothing you say will ever persuade Otaku to do or say anything other than what he's saying now. In the entire time he's been here at Nintendo Life I've seen absolutely no change whatsoever. You may as well save yourselves the wasted effort and return to discussing things you would like to discuss, because he's done exactly this thing before, and I'm sure he'll wind up doing it again to other kindhearted souls like yourselves who just want to do their best to help someone.

I know it's harsh, but it's true. I'm just tired of watching him drag other people down into frustration over it. :(

Well college degrees don't give you a free pass as in you don't have to work hard, but it seems in my experience people with higher educations get more just because they went to college

It opens doors that maybe wouldn't be available to non-graduates. That's all. College graduates still have to make the effort to walk through them. You're not guaranteed anything upon being awarded a degree, i can't tell you how many friends I have who have been to college and work entry-level jobs because there's nothing available in their field where they're at.

Your assumptions about things will not help you at all. You can either start looking into these magical jobs you think you're going to have while you're in Japan, see what their requirements are, and then work toward them as goals, or you can continue to sit there, moan about how all you want in life is to meet a pretty Japanese girl, and piddle around for the rest of your life, Otaku. The choice is yours.

ah, i see what you're talking about now — for some reason i thought 'Uno' was the name of a pokemon you were trying to transfer from game to game between systems, lol. that particular error code seems to have to do with IP addresses on your network, perhaps your 3DS and DSi are grabbing for the same address at the same time. Have you ever had a problem transferring DSiWare between your systems before? if it worked before and isn't working now for some reason, the error code page at Nintendo recommends power cycling your router as a potential fix.

You fixed the problem with the 'DS games wi-fi' setting on your 3DS, but that doesn't have anything to do with your DSi... if your DSi can connect to the DSi Shop and use the Internet Browser with no problem but has trouble playing DS games using WFC functionality, chances are your internet settings haven't been set properly on your DSi. Remember that DS games require a WEP connection, they can't do anything with WPA.
