    Subject: About games in differant countries.


    I am about to buy a Wii, but I have one concern... I am living in Sweden atm but I will move back to Australia shortly. If I buy a Wii from England or Sweden, will it be able to play Australian games? Will any Wii be able to play games from every country?

    Thanks alot!

    Dear Customer, thank you for your e-mail.​

    Yes the standard for Europe is PAL and that is the same as Australia. You will need a plug shape converter to plug it in over there but the voltage is the same.

    Kind regards,

    Your Nintendo Team



    He may of misunderstood what I was trying to say though. I think he replied in the sense that I wanted to play a European Wii on Australian TVS. Although even so, I'm not sure what system US uses.

    Kind of. Video standards and region coding are two different things. Video standards are the difference between NTSC and PAL. However, the US and Japan both use NTSC, but the Wii is region locked so Japanese Wii's will only play Japaese games, not American; and vice versa.

    Most of the games are the same. Usually they are just in the appropriate language by default, and it discourages importing.
