Nintendo Wii U will be region locked: Boo Hoo from Gamers

Nintendo Wii U

Nintendo’s upcoming console is coming on 18th November and unfortunately its region locked. This is in conjunction with previous consoles of Nintendo that have also been region locked.

The news was released by a Japanese magazine who reported that a Nintendo representative told them that the device will play only games that are bought from that country and not elsewhere.

The region locking system has always been criticized by gamers who cant afford to buy a game in their region where it is expensive as opposed to getting it from other region where it might be cheap.

Nintendo has continued its legacy of region locking after 3DS, Wii, GameCube, N64, SNES and NES, all of which were locked devices.

There has been a lot of buzz lately regarding Nintendo’s upcoming console with many games not getting release for it including Far Cry 3

Stay tuned for more updates regarding this gadget…IF they also don’t get region locked that is!
