    Will US gamecube discs work in a UK Wii?

    Hi,

    I'm really looking fwd the release of the Wii and am trying to decide which version to get.

    It might be a bit early for anyone to answer this i know but....

    Does anyone know yet if the consoles will be region specific?

    I'm from the UK and have a US gamecube at the moment with a fair few games so need to know if the UK Wii will play the US games. If not then i guess i'll have to get the US version.

    cheers

    steve

    My guess is that you'll be able to do that. Since Wii is region free

    Nintendo has stated that all 1st party Wii games, a.k.a. games that they develop, will be region-free, but 3rd party Wii games may or may not, depending on the game publisher.

    Now, will GC games from other regions work on the UK Wii? Um, I'm sort of guessing no because as far as I know, Gamecube was region-locked and Wii just emulates the Gamecube, so it's probably not going to happen. I was wondering the same thing about the PS3 a while ago.
