    You're pretty screwed, since Wii's are region-coded, so unless you get a freeloader like on the GC, there's no way to play non-Japanese games on your system for now. Your bro was pretty stupid =/.

    P.S.: First post ^^

    Yeah Games such as Wii Play and Wii Sports will work on Any Wii apparntly but normal games won't

    Looks like you'll have to ship your games from Japan. As long as the Shipping Fee is low it shouldn't cause too much harm. Of course you can't go and get a game as you like you have to wait =/

    Umm yes it can, but only the japanese versions.

    Yah your bro screwed you, I guess he thought he knew everything and bought it anyways. Sell it on ebay you may be able to turn a profit and get yourself a wii for your region of the world.
