    hi all, first post, looks like a great forum, just got a Wii for the family, and we are already internet connected and loving it, we have a PAL/British Wii, and am off to the USA in two weeks, if I buy a game over there will it work on my PAL Wii or do we have the usual regional compatability problems?

    many thanks

    no



    yes



    both answers could have been found with a search... but i'm actually not bothered by this one since a google search would've gotten you mixed answers depending on how old the link you clicked is, since for a while nintendo said that Wii would not be region locked, then they changed their mind and region locked it. and i'm not sure if it mentions that in the manual or not. you still could've found the answer fairly easily though.

    does this mean that when MoHH2 comes out in the UK people in the US will not be able to play people in the UK?

    I'm almost positive you can link up with anyone world wide despite region.

    i thought so too for MOH:H2, some games like Mario Strikers: Charged though you can only play against people from your own region

    I think that mario strikers might be the only one like that

    Well region locked DVD's won't affect online multiplayer ability, that is up to the game publisher. Since MoHH2 is an EA title, I doubt they have region locked online.
