    Buying a Wii in Singapore...?

    So on my way home from Europe to Brisbane Australia and im spending a few nights in Singapore and my flatmate's wanted me to looking into buying a Wii so ive got a couple questions about it...

    Firstly im guessing there isnt going to be a huge price difference, the basic wii packages are going for around 400 AUD at home and i was wondering its worth buying overseas ( anyone quote a price, i couldn't Google any ) ?

    And Secondly would the console be compatible with Aussie Wii games as i dont think i can afford many if i buy it overseas?

    Cheers, Andrew

    Ps: sorry if i posted this in the wrong forum, oh and my spelling and grammar suck

    No, the games are region locked. Unlike DS games, Wii games can only be played if they are purchased in the same region from which the wii was purchased in.

    Basically, if you bought a wii in singapore, your australian wii games would not play on it.

    Hope that helped. =)

    Double check if you can buy it with a mod chip already installed. I wouldn't be surprised if its an unadvertised service...

    This is quite interesting its a map of all the different regions, im not sure which one is Singapore but a fair few east-Asian countries are PAL. You might be in luck..

    EDIT: Just did a bit more research for you.. Looks to me like Singapore is PAL! (same as Aus)

    I bought my Nintendo Wii package from Sim Lim square, don't buy yours at Cyber Maestro 02-77, they really tried to scam me and the service was poor. After I had paid and had to wait for a while, when I went looking around they had changed my controllers to the cheap copy ones and charged me extra for the real ones. The store at the 1st floor seemed good though!
