Nintendo Screw over Gamers Yet Again

According to recent reports the DSi is to be region-locked. If you're not sure what that means, then it basically means 1) Nintendo are being dicks, 2) They've lost the plot again and 3) European DSi games will only work with European handheld consoles and so forth.

Don't threat though, DS games will still remain region free. Like all portable handheld software should be. Speaking to CVG, Cammie Dunanway said...
"DSi is region locked because DSi embeds net communication functionality within itself and we are intending to provide net services specifically tailored for each region. Also because we are including parental control functionality for Nintendo DSi and each region has its unique age limit made by different independent."
What this basically means is that Nintendo are once again doing what they heck they like in order to control its market as much as possible. It also means your better off just sticking with the Nintendo DS. Or what the heck, why not treat yourself to a PSP.
