@anthony12: Two things:

(a) When you post a thread here at Nintendo Life, it becomes the property of the community at large. It's not a thing for you to 'own', it's a place for users to have a discussion, and if the thread you've created is somehow against our Community Rules or if you make it do things that are against our Community Rules, it may wind up subject to locking. I would advise you to not take things personally if they don't pan out the way you'd like in a thread you create.

(b) your little 'bumps' are against our Community Rules (the one regarding posting constructively as opposed to wasting our server space). thread-bumps do annoy our users, as you've been advised, and they waste space in a thread. If you genuinely have something to add after a day or two has passed, great, but posting a nonsense 'don't let the thread die!' or the other comments along those lines every few hours as you panic is not kosher. I had thought you would've gotten the hint after I'd deleted a few, but I suppose not.

please, If no one has anything to add to a thread you've posted in (any thread, not just one you've created) and you were the last to post, give it a few days before adding something else. If still no one has anything to add, perhaps it's time to join an active conversation.

now, as you were, people :3

The best part was his response. "Oh, is that what they are doing?"

@You_Silly_Human: from the looks of your topic, you're asking whether to get a Japanese 3DS LL or a EU/NA 3DS XL. That's why it may be misleading; it's the only reason i popped in to check it out, really. Please stop leaping to insults as your first response when questioned by another user.

that said, yes, you are correct. from what I understand, it's a double-large, or 'XL' size — they use the same 'LL' abbreviation to denote the next size up from Large for other things as well, like clothing or food items. if you wind up in Japan and need an extra-large size of something, they may not understand XL off the bat, but they'd most likely understand LL immediately.

If you have any other Japan-related questions, you may want to try asking in our Japan Discussion thread. Good luck to you!

@You_Silly_Human: I don't think he was insulting you — rather, the ire seems to have been directed at Gamestop/EB. They're the same company, but their websites and operating methods are different, thus why GS would have helpful images up on their site and EB wouldn't, lol. please try assuming good faith in your fellow users before calling them 'noobs' :3

i do agree with the 'don't dish it if you can't take it' sentiment. you get what you give, after all.

After all the death threats and hate mail over the years (harassing to release the game), I'd be a little grumpy, too.

it's one thing to be 'a little grumpy'. it's another to say horrible things about other people and/or products, then cry foul when your paying fanbase (most of which who wind up enjoying some of the things you've insulted) gets on your case about it. it's a situation tailor-made for the world's smallest violin. perhaps an entire 'world's smallest orchestra'.

How about instead of being nasty about it, you just post the link to the source you're citing? That way you don't get those pesky requests for a source article in the first place. Thanks in advance, I'd hate to have to ban you over it or anything. :3

It probably costs more than it's worth as it is now, to have the thing region locked in Australia. I think the fact that Australia uses the PAL format would be enough to have things more flexible.
A digital trade market is possible, because otherwise prices would vary and that could cause some weird data if digital media was being sold outside of a company.

Just think about how you trade Pokémon on the DS games. You offer a Pokemon in exchange for another one, and it won't trade until your demand is met.
Really, the only thing you end up freeing up is bandwidth on a worldwide network. I just don't see selling games digitally working at all.

Maybe Australia will go DLC only, then Nintendo can just sell eShop cards which saves shipping space and Australia doesn't have to charge its citizens as much.

EDIT: Physical goods is what I believe is making things cost so much. You still can't avoid shipping consoles or other hardware, so perhaps they would charge less for hardware, but you're stuck using the eShop with an anonymous trade option, and the price as is on the eShop will require users to trade within the same price range.
Still, though, that's some pretty big speculation, as Nintendo would probably have to be twice as rich to let people trade games with each other online.

what does anything you've said have to do with Australia potentially banning the sale of region-locked consoles? all i see is a bunch of babbling about digital sales, and a weird Pokemon analogy that made no sense whatsoever.

why do they want to ban region-locked gaming consoles and promote their users accessing outside-region shops to get better prices? isn't this the same country that has banned Saints Row IV for a console that has access to cross-region digital shops (e.g. users will still likely be able to buy the game from the US or EU stores if they can't be bothered with importing)? You'd think they'd be all about locking stuff down, lol.
