    I'm not neccessarily against modding, but when you mess with the insides of a console, you're really on your own, and have nobody to blame but yourself.
    I agree that it's not a good idea to mod consoles (mainly because of all the internet firmware updates which companies now do with them).
    I also protest that we shouldn't have to wait 2 months longer than USA to get what is by then an old game.

    Close but not completely accurate. PAL and NTSC are standards used in Video Systems. So lets say a DVD purchased in America (NTSC) will not display correctly on an European dvd player (PAL) . You'll probably get a distorted B/W image (the audio will work correclty though). This limitation alone does not limit you on what kind of console you want to play the game, that is why an additional coding is added to the games.

    So you now have America - NTSC-UC
    Asia - NTSC-J
    Europe - PAL

    So even though America and Asia both share the same video standard (NTSC) the "UC" and "J" designations are the ones telling us that the games are coded (read region protected) for those areas only.

    I second that. We have to wait unbelievable amounts of time just to play a game that is already out in America. Sometimes we don't even get any different content either. Really looking forward to Paper Mario, even though I haven't played the others.

    Although the UK does sometimes get games before the US (rarely though). Things like Warioware, Wiiplay and stuff...

    Oh, and here's a couple of things on regions:

    So much for undetectable chips.
    That turtle has a brief case. It must be going to work. I hope it has a good day.

    hey guys, im one of the unlucky bastards who now has a brick, i was wondering if anyone has tried connecting to the net using one of those lan cables that plug into the USB? i was thinking since you need to define the SSID, encryption, etc and with a wired you dont have to do anything perhaps it could connect automatically?? if anyone could try that and get back to me thatd b great. im working on a possible solution so ill keep you guys updated

    I would laugh at all these PAL users who bricked their Wii's with illegalness, but if I had the chance to IMPORT the game and it buggered up my Wii... so I laugh with a sad face for you.
    I mainly want to get the Wii chipped, as many people said, because we get Wii games very very late, or even never, after US release. I mean, I was looking forward to Trauma Centre for so long, I didn't buy the DS version so i could get a whole new experience. It was a launch US game, and no official release date here yet...
    Thats were importing comes in
    Mehhhh... I need to move to US or something just to get all these games and bring them back or something...

    Hi guys, just thought I'd put my two penneth in. The reason the consoles are bricked is because there is a NTSC firmware update in the USA paper mario game. If you have not got the 2.1e firmware on your PAL Wii then it will try to update it and as its different hardware it will brick it. If you've got 2.1e then it wont bother trying and plays fine.
    Sorry to the guys who have bricks, so far, even if your on the update screen there is no fix.
    So if you have the latest firmware, 2.1e, on your PAL , then this game plays fine on a chipped wii, but this will keep happening to chipped consoles unless you keep the firmware updated, both on the console and your wiikey.
    Maybe someone will figure out a fix for a bricked wii, but personally I doubt it, sorry
