    German Wii -UK compatability

    Hi,
    I am in the UK and looking to get a Wii from Germany and was wondering if anyone knew of any compatibility issues?

    Particularly, I have heard a rumour that there will be problems connecting to the internet, as the server will be different.

    Does anyone know anything about this?
    Or anything else I should be aware of?

    Many thanks

    Slystor

    Check out www.wiipreorder.co.uk

    Through that site, I decided to purchase my Wii from Germany. Expected delivery the 12th. Personally if theres almost 1000 happy comments on there, I'm going for it.

    I can however let you know about the online part, once it arrives if your not purchasing anytime soon.

    I know now that all games are compatable, and the plug wont be a problem if you use a travel plug.

    Cheers Guys,

    I am mainly worried about the internet connection, do you know if this is customizable from the console itself, or were the sales people in my local shop trying to dissuade me to keep the sale??

    Also I have seen that there is a 2pin to 3pin plug attachment that you can get from this site-

    Thanks again

    Nice find! I may order one of those to make life easier. Sorry I cant be of any more help with the internet questions, but I'm praying it is compatible online as its on the way. Seriously though, one of those 1000 comments would surely mention the problem, if it exsisted I expect.

    I have just purchased a console from Komplett they send european versions from the Netherlands. Arrived within 3 working days, Brilliant!!!. They also included a conversion plug 2 to 3pin which is really good. Can you help though, do you know if US games will play?:
