    In a recent intervew with CNET, NoA spokesman Vispi Bhopti covered many topics about the upcoming Wii.

    Sorry to say but any Australians planning on stocking up on U.S imports will have to think again, Bhopti said "You won't be able to play overseas games on an Australian unit."

    This pretty much confirms the Wii will be region locked.

    This could just be a ploy to scare people into pre ordering and guaranteeing they buy the Wii, I think Australia would only need about 10-20,000 units on launch as we only have a population of 20 million and most of them are over 50 or have an XBOX 360 or are gunna wait for the PS3 . We are just a small drop in the ocean compared to the US and European markets .

    It's alright dude, ploy or not he did state that all the pre-orders are guarenteed so haul ass to either Myer or EB and reserve your Wii (Note: Myer have a Wii Pre-order package which gives you $600 in vouchers when you pick up your Wii) :D

    What is the difference between US, Jap and EU Wii? I live in the UK but would rather get a US or Jap machine as EU is always slow on games and some jap games never made it to the west.

    so what if we get games late, we get to read the reviews first to see if a game sucks.
