In the Xbox One's giant backtrack yesterday, Microsoft announced they were removing the region lock on their upcoming console. The company's new console joins the ranks of the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Vita. All four of the systems are not region locked. By this winter, the only hardware devices that will not be region-free will be the Wii U and 3DS, both of which are distributed by Nintendo.
One NeoGAF user has had enough and is attempting to spark a revolution, aiming to remove region locks on all Nintendo consoles. A Twitter account called @EndRegionLock has been created, and it is encouraging users to tweet their concerns to Nintendo of America, Nintendo, and Nintendo of Europe divisions. #EndRegionLocking and #NintendoRegionFree are the encouraged hashtags to use. In addition, a petition has been created that anyone can sign. Check it out here!
Finally, to hit Nintendo's core, a massive list of Miiverse posts has been given. NeoGAF users are encouraging everyone to "Yeah!" all of these posts to get the message to Nintendo. See the entire list in the original thread right here! Make sure to "Yeah" all those posts if you want Nintendo to go region-free.
In addition, you can send letters via snail mail to the offices of Nintendo, Nintendo of America, and Nintendo of Europe. The addresses can be found in the thread as well!
I'm dubbing this movement Operation Region-Freefall! Let's all work together and make history! Check out all the linked pages to support the revolution!
