Yesterday Nintendo's Nintendo's VP of Marketing Perrin Kaplan was asked if Wii would be region free. She replied "yes".
Today, a spokesperson for Nintendo UK said that "We are region-locked" and that Nintendo USA made their declaration in error.
well its not that bad maybe some games will be region free just like it is on the xbox 360, wher some games are region locked and others are region free.
This sucks... I wanted to import the Japanese Wii but now I'll just wait till the price drops in Europe.
Too bad Nintendo, lost a customer (for the time being untill the price is 170 Euro also overhere/25.000 yen in Japan)
