    I believe so. When I got my Wii there was a very nice couple from the UK behind me who said everything should be compatible and asked inside the store to make sure and they were told that it should work fine.

    EDIT: And this was at the NWS so I would assume those guys know what they are talking about.

    Most of the time systems are made for games that are released in that country. You might want to call Nintendo and ask them about.

    It will work but you wont be able to play pal games on it. Pal is the region code UK uses and USA uses a different code (cant remember it right now). So if you buy the american wii you will only be able to play games from amercian.

    So basically you will have to import all your games and any games bought from the UK wont work
