    Due to the UK shortage of consoles. I am considering buying a unit from France. I believe that the manual etc is in French, English and German and i can select English as the language during the initial set up. However i have on major concern. The French use secam as their format, however the Wii boxes are described as Wii PAL. Has anyone any experience of these units in the UK ?
    Are there any issues when playing UK games.
    I would appreciate any help and advice that anyone could give.
    Thanks

    All it is is a diffrent TV cable and plug in the box

    Most if not all modern tvs should handle the signal

    Well it should just fit right into the tv (I havent seen the French wiis bits)

    There should be no probs with a German one (all the ones fron Euorpe are the same)
    Aside from it wont play any WW2 games
    And dont mention the War to it
