On a more disappointing note, the DSi is not region free, making it Nintendo’s first handheld to be region locked. That’s bullshit if you ask me; one of the sweetest things about the Game Boy, GBC, GBA and the DS has been the ability to play games from around the world. My brother and I literally bought Zelda: Link’s Awakening in an airport in Europe and played it throughout the plane ride back to the States. It’s been especially nice on the DS with games such as Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan!, Starfi 4, or Daigasso: Band Bros.. To think about what undoubtedly cool import games I’m going to miss out on DSi has me bummed. And reluctant to jump on the DSi bandwagon.
