    - Virtual Console games will be not be Universal, ie, European gamers will get the European versions.
    - Nintendo also said that it expects to release RGB and component video cables that fit current pricing models.

    I think something like Freeloader might still work on the Wii. Or you'll have to get a Wii Freeloader when they release one. Or you could just play them on a GameCube .

    The consoles will most likely be hard coded to connect automatically to their own region's wii site for downloads, so it you import a jap version it will most likely contact a japanese site even tough you'd be situated in the UK or NZ.

    Good news that they are making official RGB and Component cables, I'll be buying a component cable at release if they get them out for sale by then.

    Bleh, that sucks. Though I have US GC games and I'm getting a US Wii. So it's not a problem for me, though it still sucks for others.
