Console region locking - has its time passed?

RogueyWon (735973) writes "One of the more welcome details of the recent E3 announcements, which got slightly lost in the furore around used games restrictions, was the news that games on both the Playstation 4 and Xbox One would be region-free. The news leaves Nintendo as the only console manufacturer still committed to region locked games. Now a fan campaign, reminiscent of the successful Operation Rainfall is seeking to persuade Nintendo to drop region locks from its 3DS and Wii-U consoles. Are the days of region-locked console games, a long-running bugbear for internationally-minded gamers, finally coming to an end?"
