Sep 24,  · To the surprise of absolutely nobody, it has been confirmed by Japanese publication Famitsu (via a translated tweet) that the Wii U will feature a region lock Estimated Reading Time: 4 mins. Nope, not a single one of them. Nintendo consoles have never been region free. Handhelds from them were region free until the DSi XL. Yes, DS games were still region free and DS games from any. Yeah like the Wii, and the 3DS, the Wii U is backwards with the whole region locking thing.

 

Is wii u region locked.So what part of the system is region locked? – Wii U

Apr 06,  · 1- Insert a Pal Game on Wii U. 2- Launch the Pal Game. 3- Eject the Pal Game during the first sequence of boot (when you see the wii U logo blinking on the left hight corner) 4- the Wii U Boot is locked to the Pal Game Sequence. 5- Insert a NTSC Game Wii U. 6- The NTSC should boot after few seconds. Second Method. Nope, not a single one of them. Nintendo consoles have never been region free. Handhelds from them were region free until the DSi XL. Yes, DS games were still region free and DS games from any. Is there anyway to bypass region locking? I’ve bought my Wii U in the UK 4 years ago, but now I’m currently living in another country where only NTSC games are being sold and no PAL games on sight. I’ve been wanting to play LoZ:Wind Waker for quite a while now and I’ve got my eyes on BotW soon. My only problem is, as stated, there’s no PAL.

Boards Wii U So what part of the system is region locked? User Info: BootLoxes. User Info: crazyj The power cords. A game’s worth is not measured by it’s replay-value, nor it’s length, but by the quality of the experience you had while playing. User Info: TerraPhantom. Is it the console, the games, or both? If i remember correctly the wii could be hacked to play games region free which makes me believe that nintendo systems are locked but their games are not.

What do you guys think? It’s both; it’s just that a hacked Wii won’t give a crap about what the region of the disc is. But it is plausible for Nintendo to release a disc that plays on all region Wii Us too they did do that on the 3DS actually. User Info: Eoin. The discs have a flag that say what region they are.

The system enforces the region lock by reading that flag and then refusing to play discs from outside of the same region. This could be bypassed entirely on the system side, if Nintendo ever wanted to remove the region restrictions or if the Wii U was hacked.

Interesting input from you guys. User Info: jsb User Info: n00bsaib0t. Yeah it has to be both. If the system and disc don’t both have a region setting it can’t be enforced. This is why I laugh at Sony fanboys that try to make Sony look like saints in regards to region locking.

User Info: Neonwarrior Both Sony and Microsoft have gone with no region locks this gen only Nintendo is behind on this, had stopped putting region locks on the games in the later years too. User Info: PS4Warrior. It’s pretty bad. User Info: sg Neonwarrior posted What’s ironic is that the DS had no region locks whatsoever. More topics from this board System Update!
