It doesn't matter. Without region locking, those products wouldn't be sold in those regions

Totally missing the point. I'm not arguing about what is happening (or would happen), I'm arguing about what should happen. Why should people who happen to be making $10K in a "poor region" be able to buy a game for substantially less than someone making $10K in a "rich region"?

Kind of an inane question. Should these people be arrested for buying goods? The question is, why shouldn't a company be allowed to set their prices in this fashion? Because first world message boarders are going to whine? Or are governments supposed to be stepping in and mandating what prices goods must be sold at? Setting regional prices obviously gives a company more flexibility to meet local demands, and is generally in the interest of both sides in poor markets.
