    Does anyone know the voltage compatibility of the US Wii console's
    power brick (PSU)? I'm tired of late releases and eye-gouging prices
    here in Sweden and wanna import a unit, but not sure
    whether it's really gonna be necessary to buy a 110V/240V transformer
    or juz a plug adaptor.

    Thanks!

    that wouldn't be all that wise. Wii's are region coded meaning everything you buy you would have to ship in instead of hitting up a local store...not to mention it voids the warranty if you do use it in another region

    Swedish Wii est. retail price is gonna be approx. $378,
    not to mention a lovely $90 per game,
    so on the contrary, I think it's very wise to import one
    especially (off-topic-> if I wanna play games like real Contra on Virtual Console, not that "Probotector" mockup we got here coz the original title was
    too fearsome, oooh..)

    Wow, I'd never guess other countries could increase prices that much. Why is that?
