    Alright. A friend of mine in Japan wants to buy a Wii there to bring home. The only reason that she's buying it is to buy that upcoming WiiWare game about the Space Invaders (Space Invaders Get Even). The thing is, will the Japanese Wii be able to download a US version of the game itself, or should she hold out for a US Wii?

    Thanks in advance.

    The store you're able to view, is determined by system region.

    Points are region locked as well. Each region's store requires compatible points.

    Thanks much. I'll tell her to hold out for the US Wii, then.

    Nintendo's setup is very draconian... [​IMG]
