    Hey,

    I really feel as though I need to talk to some Wii dudes and this is the only place. I purchased my Wii off of e-bay on Sunday, and I know they sell them for RIDICULOUS prices but this one was from Germany and I got it for £250, which is great considering other prices. However, I need some reassurance! I just really wanted this Wii badly and couldn't possibly wait any longer for stock to come in and Christmas without the Wii would suck very much so, I know it.

    So I just want feedback, preferably detailed feedback, critical or not (hopefully not too critical).

    Thanks v. much! :D

    I have never had a bad experience on ebay. Hope you paid using PayPal though.

    only thing is that you may experience problems with VC cause Germany is Euros and we are Pounds also you'll need to change the language setup so a small knowledge of the german language is probably required.

    Also, the dude has 99.1% feedback from like 120 people. So thats only 1 person who left negative. Thats pretty damn safe right? Also, what day do you think it'll get here? He sent it off yesterday.

    ... Aren't game for the Wii games regional?

    So that means you can only play German games with your German Wii.

    Correct me if I'm wrong though.

    afaik europe still includes the uk, so you should be good. at least dvds share all the same european region code.

    If you consider Wii Sports as a game that "came with that". Then yes, otherwise no.
