Nintendo DS game compatibility

#1
Hi

Little flamingo has just bought a Nintendo DS. Can games bought in the US be used on a UK bought machine?

Cheers

Yep apart for some chinese made games which wont work.

Regional division
The Nintendo DS is region free in the sense that any console will run a Nintendo DS game purchased anywhere in the world; it is the same system everywhere. However, the Chinese version games can only be played on the Chinese iQue DS, whose larger firmware chip contains the required Chinese character glyph images

My nephew informs me that his dad always buys the update games from Hong kong on ebay they are a lot cheaper and arrive very quick .
