Nintendo 3DS Region Lock Defeated?

Nintendo DSImportNintendo and Sony and most other hardware manufacturers have been great about keeping their portable systems region-free - I myself have some Japanese GameBoy Advance and PSP titles, and I love 'em. (They weren't cheap!) I was disappointed to hear that region locks came to the 3DS, but it seems there's a way around that, too.

This is not a hack to let you play pirated software - it's for actual legit imported games that you presumably paid for. (I don't know if you're a shoplifter.) There are a few caveats, like if you updated your 3DS in the last nine months it probably won't work. But hey - it's a start!

Ultimate Spider-Man Cheapo Wave 2 at Kmart/Walmart, $5.99

MarvelCheapAs of last week, I saw Ultimate Spider-Man All-Stars Action Figures Wave 2 at an actual big box store for the very first time. A few, actually - one Kmart and two Walmarts so far. Online stores have been getting these for many months - they even have wave 3 - but odds are you've never seen these at a US Walmart, Target, Toys R Us, or elsewhere until just the last few days.

Wave 2 includes the two figures from wave 1 as well, but wave 3 has both waves 2 and 3 in it. This is how you can tell that the cases you're seeing aren't wave 3. As such, you can order a case of those online if you don't feel like waiting until 2015 for them to show up near you. Don't forget, wave 1 of this line hit retail stores January of last year.
