    Because, it’s really not about you or me.

    It’s about Wii.

    And together, Wii will change everything.

    i am not sure if uk games would work i dont think that region is PAL. but i could be wrong. and yes it will be difficult to sell in uk.

    If your pal's in China and it's a Chinese Wii (is there such a thing?), then it'd only play games released in China. However, I'm pretty sure it's a Japanese Wii, in which case it'd only play games released in Japan.

    Mod chips are coming out JUST NOW, but they don't yet have a mechanism for disabling the region lock. You'd have to wait for one of those if you wanted to play UK games on your Wii.

    yet again a better explanation than mine.
