    And you're right, if Japanese Wiimotes work, then it'll only be 17/$32.

    Would an American or Japanese bought Wiimote work on an UK Wii?

    There will probably be no answer for this for a little while, but if I'm able to get a Wiimote for 20 from America rather than 30 here, I'm all for that.
    I think it depends, if the wii is region free they will work, if no they won't, the official message says it won't work, said from nintendo, although the day before they said it will work, we just have to wait for the real one and then you will know.

    yeah, the UK price is a bit of a rip, but the US price of $40 is perfectly reasonable. Forget about what other controllers cost, this is no ordinary controller. Based on the components inside, that is a perfectly reasonable price and people need to stop complaining.
    ... but what do I know?...

    The UK price is a 'bit' of a rip? That's a 'bit' of an understatement.

    I don't care about America complaining, probably because they definitely don't get it as bad as we do, ever.


    I'm all for spending $32 rather than $56. (Put into American currency so you know the difference between the higher UK price and lowest Japanese price)

    ermmm.... i believe wii is japanese, even if it isn't, it Wii is a name of a product, therefore wouldn't change unless they released different names like sega master system and sega genesis

    and the warnings on back of controller would probably be in japanese, and possibly ABXY, start etc.

    I don't think so cause i think that nintendo would have put something in the remote that doesn't allow you to use it in other countries....or something.

    sorry to bump this thread but i am also very interested in importing myself a few controllers form japan.

    for a set here in NZ i will pay apporox $150NZD and i can order them in for $90-100 NZD from overseas.

    if anyone has any news on this then that would be appreciated.

    Or just buy Wii Play for Wiimotes, extra fiver and get 9 games too, and if you want more then one Wiimote, buy say 2-3 Wii Plays, take the Wiimotes, then sell the game itself on eBay. Probably save yourself some moola
