    Wii Japanese Wiis Work In America?

    Well, Will They?

    I'm Thinking Of Preordering One From www.playasia.com

    But It Doesn't COme With Wii Sports,
    But Will America-Released Games Work On A Japanese Wii?

    THANX!

    well it depends on the developer. they are the ones who choose the game to be region locked or not but usualy games wont work in other regions

    They didnt lie exactly. The wording they were using is that First party games (meaning games by Nintendo) will not be region coded, I don't know if they kept their word on this or not yet.

    japan has the same power plugs as the us, but you might want a surge protector/voltage regulator for safety, since japanese specs are slightly different. Japan uses NSTC video signals, so that should be all good.

    Just no american games on your japanese wii without some sort of future hack/mod/bootdisk

    oh, and I'm just guessing, but I bet the DC in from the power brick is the same on both systems, so you could probably use a US power adapter.
