some big nintendo youtuber "nintendomination" says he has a source(rumor) that claims this.

would this entice anyone to upgrade their 3ds if you werent planning to?

I'll believe it when I see it. Seems too good to be true.

If the new 3DS is region Free, Nintendo will have just took a huge dump on all the current 3DS owners. That being said, I'm getting a New 3DS since I dont own the current one.

Yup. I'm ok with it too. All of the outrage is a knee jerk reaction. In the end this will help the 3DS have a longer life than it could have had with the base hardware. Not only that its standardized button layout will make it so that games can be ported over easier and won't need weird controls or a add on.

If true, then Nintendo further shitting on people and then praising Nintendo for. Do you people even hear yourselves? Way to go, it's no wonder they can get away with what they do.

I have had 3 different 3ds systems including my current Zelda xl but I am looking forward to an actual upgrade even if a small one.

It shouldn't have been region lock in the first place.

If it is region free I'll import one, but I doubt it will be.

This guy has a history of spreading false stories, so I wouldn't even bother getting excited about the possibility of this being true.

I didn't expect it to be region free, so I'm not disappointed. I probably wouldn't even import games anyway.

People whining that they fill slighted by this new system are ridiculous. Perhaps you should wait and see the next Pokemon, Mario and Zelda be exclusive to the new model to complain. Because as of right now, I believe its main reason for being released is not for games like that. But to simply support the Amiibo business, which in the end, will do nothing to impact the current 3DS owners.
