    Just like the NTSC version of SPM would brick a PAL Wii the current European versions of Mario Strikers will apply an incompatible update to your Japanese or American Wii.

    Go online and update your Wii before even inserting the Strikers disc and run an update to prevent the problem. Edit: 2.2U/J seems to be the minimum safe version afaik

    I can provide screenshots if necessary.

    No it bricked a friends console who lives in Asia. In places like Indonesia, Philippines, and the like its very hard to find a console that hasn't been modded. Because of this there are LOTS of pirated games being sold in stores and the retailers usually know nothing of the problem. A good chunk of the population with the system never thought to connect it to the internet and this was the first game to be released in Europe before Japan with an update.

    In short there are HORDES of users in Asia with broken Wiis right now. :(

    Edit: I guess I should have posted this in the Strikers forum? Didn't even realize one existed until a few minutes ago

    It means that your Wii is made useless. It turns into a brick because you can no longer play it.

    I can't say how well the code works but here is a link to the source of the more popular method for removing updates from current game ISOs.
