I don't want Nintendo spending a single second resolving a non-issue as long as a serious issue is still present.
Furthermore, before complaining, we should understand why the reason Nintendo did it. Is it just an anti-consumer corporate greed measure? I hardly doubt it. If GamePad has a firmware, I can see how it can be a problem as it has TV functions implemented in it. No one complains that we don't have a universal firmware instead of European, American and Japanese.
This is very true, we never knew the Wii U's firmware could be updated until this problem happened. It's very possible that the GamePad's region lock is a consequence of ensuring that the GamePad remains usable for the system it was originally meant to be played with. The truth is that we don't know.
Until Nintendo comments, it is irresponsible to speculate and generate piles of slander
for something we don't understand.
In the mean time... :lol
