Wii U to be Region Locked

Thanks to a recent translation of the latest Japanese magazine Fatmitsu, it is now confirmed that the Wii U will be region locked. The excerpt from the magazine reads: “What can be played on the Wii U is restricted by a region-lock feature; software not sold in the same region cannot be played.”  For those of us who were hoping to export games from other regions, this news comes as a real downer as we’re not sure why such a move is necessary in the first place.
