    Japanese Wii Vs American Wii: Which one should I buy?

    I am considering buying a Wii, but I do not know if I should get a Japanese one or a American one. Buying either one, or using either one is not a problem for me. My issue is that I want to play both American and Japanese games on my Wii. I understand there are mod chips and loader disks out there, but what is the best route? If it is not possible to play both regions on one system, I think I will just get the Japanese one.

    Also, I read something about Japanese Wii's not playing on certain American Tv's, is this true?

    You should really just get an American Wii, Japan gets things earlier than us in North America for the most part, but theres no need to buy a Japanese Wii. Unless you live in Japan, but if not then just get an American one.

    Well with a Japanese Wii, people will probably charge you loads on shipping... and they'll be a lot more expensive in general.

    Just go American.

    Assuming you don't live in Japan, you're much better off with an American Wii.

    If money isn't an issue, I guess you can go with a Japanese Wii.

    Why would an american buy a japenese wii? Thats just the most pointless thing I have ever heard of.
