    American Purchased Wii from amazon.co.uk -

    Hello,
    I purchased a Wii last night from amazon.co.uk since they had stock

    So, i am wondering if purchased games from the US will work on this console? Basically, what are the main differences?

    Any information would be appreciated! Thank You.

    Buying a wii from the UK means you cannot play any games bought in America. They are on different formats.

    Yeah it kinda sucks, also UK games cost more than an American ones do, if they had the same currency, also games come out later, also you'll have to pay for shipping, basically it sucks, cancel it if you can. Local Best Buy's and Targets have are getting shipments on Sunday guaranteed get there at 6 tomorrow!

    with the US currency being so crap against the £ it would cost you mega money to buy UK stuff!

    However, it does mean that us brits can buy US goods and take advantage of the sweet exchange rate.

    the only way u are gonna play games is if u keep buying them from the uk, which is gonna cost alot cause of importing, or if u mod ur wii

    still just wait till best buy or walmart has one in stock

    I love the to $ ratio!

    It means I can order custom t-shirts and such for 8 including shipping

    Hooray for weak currency!

    Too bad you got the sucky EU releases like us Europeans have.
    Tip of the day:
    A big mistake a lot of you make is that wiiware games will be free.

    Wiiware is just the same like the virtual console. Its different in that it offers new games instead of old console games.

    I can think of some easy games ( Like tetris and some other in that direction ) that can be free but the majority will cost money.
