I was in a similar situation, not wanting a situation where an RPG like Radiant Historia is available in English but tantalisingly out of reach due to region locking, or having to wait a year for Rune Factory 4 like Europe does for all the other RF games. |
But on balance I thought a Euro DS was the best option. As Cappy says, that way you don't lock yourself out of your own market and miss out on the ridiculously cheap games we often get. The US don't seem to discount as aggressively, and even when they do you have postage to consider.
Plus I always worry that something will go wrong and I'll have to deal with returning a console overseas. That isn't appealing.
