    Welcome to WiiChat. Regarding your question: The US Wii consoles are NTSC standard, so they will only play NTSC games. Even if you brought the console to the UK, which is PAL standard, the US Wii console will not be able to play European games. You will have to import.

    Thank you for your help. So it is fair to say it will work in the UK on UK Televisions as long as teh games come from teh USA. Thanks gain your advice is very helpful.

    Welcome,and UK has a different electrical system, so you need a converter or something like that, and no, UK Wii accessories wont work on an american Wii either.Just to confirm and add to wat others said above.
