    I am going to canada in the Winter and i wanted to know if i bought a game there would it work on my Wii!


    I live in the USA ! And the Wii is region locked so im wondering if a canadian game will work on a USA wii!

    OR since we are in the same continent it does not matter?!


    Thanks!

    Unless Nintendo are aiming to piss people off, games'll work across territories

    Canada & USA share same region coding as you are indeed in the same continent ;) :D


    WRONG :eek: Sorry but Nintendo's games this generation are fully region locked between territories. It's a bug bear for me as most of my cube titles are NTSC so I wont be able to play them in a European wii.

    Sorry, I meant across territories as in "across the Americas" or "across Europe". Bad wording :p

    Hopefully the GC Freeloader works on the Wii. Maybe a polite email needs to be written to IGN asking them to test it out. :)
