    The Wii is region locked, meaning that if you buy a US Wii, it will NOT play the Wii games sold in Europe. You would have to import games from the US.

    you will have to also buy a new power adapter, or use a step down converter, i have a US wii in the UK, works great cause they charge to damn much for games in the UK.

    so basically...

    All games in the US has some kind of blocking thing. If you buy your Wii in the US, the games from the US will work on it. European games, however, hates US Wiis and will NOT run if you run it on a US Wii.

    BUT I'm pretty sure the Wii itself will work (US or European in the US or Europe). Just don't buy games from Europe if you but a US Wii.

    For anyone who added me in Brawl and deleted me because it still said "Awaiting Registration", please re-add me. It just means we both haven't been online at the same time.

    You could get the Wii chipped, but that's frowned upon, and also has the added benefit of voiding your warranty. It may be best to wait to find a Wii in your home country, but If you need one by Christmas, get ready to import.
    I tend to get on around 8 o'clock PM Eastern time, and mostly play until I get too drunk.
