Yeah but Nintendo do have the best games! C'mon show some love for the big N!
Nintendo of Europe have been awful since day one! Ever seen the Super Nintendo I have imported my Nintendo consoles for 60Hz goodness. Metroid Corruption only costs like £27 delivered from dvdboxoffice as well, a instant win!
I do think NOE could learn quite a lot from Microsoft's attitude to Europe. They've really impressed me with the 360.
If you are bashing Nintendo then don't use Sony as an example. Region free the PS3 may be but Sony will do everything in their power to stop you importing. Also what was the deal with the release date for the PS3? How many months after the US did we get it? The Wii was like 3 weeks delay!
