    Wii not Region Free

    In spite of rumors (and confirmation) to the contrary, it turns out that the Nintendo Wii will not be region-free as had previously been reported.

    A Ninteno Spokesperson told GamesIndustry.biz this afternoon: "We are region-locked," and said the US arm of the company had made a mistake in saying otherwise. So no importing crazy Wii games from Japan for you, son.

    1. How has news gotten worse since yesterday. Why would want to order a game from a country in which you can't speak the laungue.

    2. It's not fake beacuse The Feed on G4's website would say if any article is a rumor and if they don't it's true until proven other wise.

    That's not what I heard, I heard that All Nintendo made games will be region free, but 3rd party publishers still have the same regions

    Seriously, turpentine? That would be great.

    I think you're right, PiRatCollective.


    Wii_Rulez, for the most part I agree that there's no real point in getting a game that is presented in a language you can't understand, but there have been quite a few Japanese games that were only available for Japan that were really cool.

    However, the only Japanese game I have and want to play is Vib-Ribbon, which I can't yet play because I don't know which mod-chip to get to play it on my American NTSC PS2.

    Maybe all the games with online play are region fixed while the non online games are region free

    It's all likely to be region-fixed. It has to do with TV standards (which is the main reason handhelds usually aren't region coded, no TV to worry about), as well as primairy languages. Region-coding makes a programmer's life a lot easier.
    ... but what do I know?...
