Famicom Dojo Podcast 69: Region Free America

There’s a White House petition going around to make region locking a thing of the past — at least in the United States of America. Does such a law have any chance of passing, and can it even be effective if it did? And what would the side-effects be? Vinnk and Sean discuss the perils and pitfalls of region locking, if it even makes sense any more in an increasingly digital-only medium, and the kinds of odd behaviors it causes in those who actually want to buy games or consoles across regions. We also discuss the (successful) GCW-Zero Kicstarter, and its inevitable ROM piracy implications.
