    I was just wondering for sure if anyone knows that the system is infact region locked or not. I understand the whole PAL vs NCTS tv nonsense but all I care about is if I import a copy of Super Smash Bros Brawl in 3 days will I be able to play it.

    No you can't the only way of doing that really is modding your Wii or buying a Japanese Wii's and a cord converter. I also know that codejunkies has a Freeloader that will let you play the game but sure that the Wii updates have taken out that from working.

    OMG, when I saw the "YUP" i got well excited, then i crashed when i saw "IS INDEED REGION LOCKED", god damn did you do that on purpose?
    LOL

    Yeah it is region locked, but i hear that the ps3 isn't though, kickass or what!
    Consoles better tackle this issue better man, i can see in the future stores will be selling imports just for an extra 5 bucks. That would be great would'nt it!
    PS3 clearly know what they're doing.

    Did you know ps3's are transformers in disguise, why else would they be so expensive, GEEEZ!

    No, ps3 isn't fun, not yet anyway, I'm sure they'll make some new accessory to level the playing field though.
