    Why no region protection?

    I love the fact that the DS has no region protection whatsoever, but why?

    Why would Ninty do this to themselves?

    Allmost every hand held has no region lockouts

    Its something to do with it being a self containded unit (the screen is part of it)

    well think of it this way.... the DS is a portable unit.... consider you go to Europe for one of your vacations and you decide to bring you DS along.... and you finish you game and see one that you are interested in .... then you can buy it ^^

    i believe at least 50% of ppl will use their DS during their vacations and even if there are not as many ppl who buy games on their vacations there still are ppl who do
    PM to add me to Wii and from there we can add different games!

    So, really the ONLY reason that ANYTHING has region coding is that the major movie houses (Disney, Fox, WB, Etc.) realized that with the conversion to a digital system from an analog system, it would allow people in different countries, with different price points, would be able to play each others versions.

    With cassettes, both video and audio, the difference in power frequencies prevented this.

    So an artificial system was added to simulate this incompatablity.

    Basically, any system NOT using a form of Disc (CD, DVD, UMD) doesn't have Region Protection.
    Back in grade school, a good friend of mine had like five Japanesse Import games for his NES.


    And the end result off all this is, I got Phoenix Wright, Justice for All like 6 months before it came out in the US and beat it just about the time it hit our shelves, because it had the English version already on it.
    Pokemon Diamond: Name:Sif FC:3952 3555 4891

    Now Trading 1st, 3rd, & 4th gen starters, Phione, Rotom, Porygon, Dratini, Kecleon, Feebas, Castform, Tyrogue, and anything else I can breed.
