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

Simply not true. The truth of the matter is, There are plenty of Titles released only in one region. This alone should be enough not to use region locking for a couple of reasons, because distribution should be about getting titles to those who would like to play them (even if they don't know about them yet). Even if the international audience for these games is small, leading to the game being labeled as "obscure", the company is still denying customers something they want without any good reason I can see. Am I the only american who wants to play project mirai? I don't think so. And I don't think Sega or Nintendo are losing anything by not letting me import it (other than the $230 for a new japanese 3ds that I shouldn't have to pay for just one game). I also don't think that every game requires an understanding of the native language in order to play it. I had been playing Rhythm tengoku long before they decided to release the sequels Internationally. I never needed to read a lick of Japanese to play it and now that the series is international, I still prefer the Japanese versions because I find the English voice tracks to be somewhat dopey-sounding. This, of course, is beside the point because If I needed to and DID speak Japanese, I'd still want to play the game. What I'm trying to say is, I really can't see what Nintendo gains by region-locking me out of a game I want to play and would pay money for, other than to put up wall between themselves and potential fans. As a part of an admitted consumer minority, I'd prefer the 99% (conservatively) didn't try to speak on my behalf.
