    Hi, I am aware that if you have an Aussie wii and try to use American games (or vice versa), that without patches, there are numerous issues- in otherwords they're not compatible straight out of the box. I recently moved from the US to Australia and made the decision not to bring an American one home with me for that very reason. We are now wondering if we buy and Aussie wii, could we use American accessories- like the guitars for Guitar Hero and the controllers?

    You'll have no problems with accessories eg. Wiimotes, Nunchucks, Guitars.
    You'll have problems with games though.

    you so call patches and games only apply to modded wii and backups. if you put a normal US game into an AU will, it just would not read at all. there wont be any problems with it .

    I have two Japanese imported controllers which work perfectly fine.
