    Is it true that evenutually you will be able to play games from any country on the Wii? Like the DS? Did the DS not play US games when it came out?

    I don't see why they will make region free games, because some countries will have the games cheaper with the currency exchange and all, I don't think Nintendo would like that. Would kick ass though

    I know that we in the UK could get cheaper games but we can do this for the DS so I don't think we can rule it out, that is unless whether the DS was region free from the start.

    The DS was always region free. The Wii is region locked and will most likely stay like that due to virtual console and Nintendo Europe being unable to release games in a timely manner

    Yeh the regions have got something to do with NTSC and PAL so its not just a thing of unlocking it. Am I right?

    Yeah... I doubt they'll change what was originally done.
