I live in Taiwan and am looking to buy a Wii primarily to buy, download and play Virtual Console games.
If my understanding is correct, only an English language Wii could play the English language games?
Today I saw a Wii with multilanguage (English/Chinese/Japanese) functionality. I assume either these are hardware chipped or firmware upgraded - does anyone know?
Does anyone know how the language switching functionality on a multilingual Wii would work? (i.e. would I need to restart each time I want to change language?)
Would I be able to play English language VC games on such a multilingual Wii or does anyone know if Nintendo would detect it (if that's not allowed - I don't know) and block it from the Virtual Console online store?
Any help would be great as I don't think the people in the shops here really know what they're talking about.
