    Should be. Hardware usually works cross-region for the most part.

    I´ve heard that the Gamepad is "semi" region-locked. Technically you can play games using any Gamepad, you just need a same region one to apply firmware updates.

    So you have a second source I have 3 black and 1 white WUPC and all are JP models I bought off Amazon. They can be $5 or so cheaper sometimes. The only thing you miss out on is English "instructions". :)

    Personally I get concerned with counterfeits on eBay. I would get it from Amazon for same price with shipping.

    Where on Amazon are you finding the JAP WUPC cheaper than the USA one?

    They have not been cheaper the past couple of months but they were when I bought 3 in December and May when when I bought the white one. That's why I said "sometimes". :)
