Petition To End Region Lock For Nintendo Games

We have started a petition on to end region lock for the nintendo 3ds, wii and wii u and discourage region lock for future nintendo consoles.
 10,000+ fans have already signed the petition. Nintendo's region lock policy makes it difficult for consumers to enjoy foreign games and there is a huge difference in buying the uk 3ds and the us/ Canada one.
 Difference In The UK Nintendo 3DS and The US Version

    Nintendo has region locked WiiU, 3DS and Wii
  • Games For The US 3DS Are Much Cheaper
  • Difference In Release Dates
  • Some Games Not Available For The UK Version Available On The US One (and vice-versa)
  • Some Content Available for Download On One Version And Not On The Other: A great example would be the pokemon mystery dungeon, a demo of it was available for usa customers but not for the uk ones and the game is not available for download for uk customers on the Eshop till date. However both parties can purchase it online. 

 If you would like to help end nintendo's region lock policy you can do so by signing the petition and linking back to this site ( or this page ( however if you don't have a website you can spread the word by tweeting or liking this post.
