    The reason is im trying to get a hold of Resident Evil 4 and none of the usual online retailers have it in stock. Had a look on ebay and all the UK versions are a bit expensive. But there seems to be a few USA versions going cheap.

    Thanks in advance
    Lol. I see that game at Gamerz all the time. Best Buy probly even has some in stock. I know Wal-Mart does, I was just there.

    And yes GC games are region protected on Wii.

    Question: Why do companies care what country you bought the game from? I've always wondered why they insist on making systems incompatible from different countries. Cause they can obviously be played, so what the deal?

    Those stores were the wrong side of the pond though

    As for why games are region protected, i guess its the same reason why DVD's also are. To control supply and therefore the price in each region.

    They do this to try to protect the local dealers and retailers. Most things in Europe are more expensive than anywhere else. Without region locking, a significant chunk of the market would simply buy online from the US.

    Instead, that significant chunk now downloads everything for free instead of paying outrageous prices for things.
