    Hello, I have Haxchi CBHC, so I'm wondering what happens when I install a game from a diffrent region and try to run it?
    Will it brick the console? I'm currently on PAL, I want to run a NTSC game.
    Thanks!

    Ah the myth of out of region games bricking the wiiu strikes again. No it will not brick your wiiu and it will play just fine including online. Think about this how the fuck would an out of region game brick the wiiu it has the exact same code as the same game for your region other than the region code lol.

    When you install an out-of-region game and try to run it, it won't work unless you load into a CFW (you said you have CBHC so that part shouldn't be a problem).
