Nintendo’s Next Console May Be Region Free

There’s a good chance Nintendo’s next platform won’t be region locked, if recent comments from company president and CEO Satoru Iwata are any indication.

While Nintendo has no intention of removing Wii U or 3DS region locks, the possibility of not having such restrictions tied to its next console are being investigated. “Removing region-locking from current game machines presents various issues, so we don’t consider that to be very realistic,” Iwata said during Nintendo’s latest Q&A with investors (via NeoGAF).

Philippines becomes first country to create dedicated rules for ridesharing services such as Uber

The Philippines has made technology-based ridesharing services like Uber legal, providing a regulatory framework for them to operate in the country.

The Philippines’ Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) today enacts an order to create the new category of transport known as “Transportation Network Companies (TNCs),” which provide app-based services connecting private vehicle owners or drivers with people looking for a ride.

“We view technological innovation as a driver for progress, especially in transportation where it can provide safer and more convenient commuting options to the public. App-based transport services help address the increasing demand for mobility spurred by rapid urbanization,” says DOTC secretary Jun Abaya in a statement posted on the agency’s website.

The move essentially allows Uber and similar services to “exist within our regulatory framework,” adds Abaya.

Uber praises this “historic” development and says it makes the Philippines the first country to create a national dedicated framework for ridesharing. Uber offers peer-to-peer service UberX and limo-esque UberBlack in the Philippines. “This first-of-its-kind order is a shining example of how collaboration between government and industry can advance urban mobility, create new economic opportunity, and put rider safety first,” notes Uber senior vice president of policy and strategy David Plouffe.
