Eurogamer has reported that they received confirmation, from Nintendo UK, that the Wii U will be region locked. Now, this comes as no surprise since the Wii and the 3DS were also region locked, but it is a bit frustrating. There is nothing worse than finding a rare, or obscure title at a flea market, or online, and finding that your system cannot play it because of the region lock.
I know that region locking is nothing new, but it is still frustrating that one country can play a game, while others have to wait for a localized release, or mod their existing systems to play. What are your thoughts on this rumor, is it a big deal?
