    Got my wii a week ago. Been great so far, but I thought the wii's were region locked, that is to say that I can't play Japanese games on a US wii. But.....I can. I think I purchased a modded one, but everything looks normal to me so far. I made the purchase in Jakarta, Indonesia.

    Welcome to the forums Apocalypse. :) Japan and America are both NTSC, so the region issue shouldn't be a problem.

    Well I'm not complaining, I just wanted to confirm that they were region locked. I remember reading about that before I purchased one. I'm also able to play pirated games on it, which are much easier to find here then the authentic ones. :cool:

    Understandable. I'm not trying to advocate piracy, but I'm loving my wii. I just don't like many of the FPS games. I thought Red Steel would of been great, but after playing it, I'm not too fond of the controls. I still love the idea though, hopefully it will be improved if they make a Red Steel 2.

    Medal of Honour: Heroes 2 has excellent controls apparently and supports 32 player online. You should have a look into that one, it releases soon.
