OK guys I decided to buy wii at least got the money too and I live in Turkey so we are in pal terrority , but it seems it would not be possible to play every ntsc u/j game in pal consoles even with converting etc. I found a guy who got a jap console and thinking about buying it . My questions are , Does wiikey and the free solutions /chiip etc./ work on it ? Is the menus/etc on the japanese wii only japanese or can I change it to english ? Can I play US titles with this easily -to be clear , is ntsc-u -> ntsc-j always works ?- ? I know wii 's origin is japan and pal only got what the developers select for us from the us/j titles , so I dont really need to play pal games on it so its no big deal but, for curiosity can I play PAL games with the j console ? Thanks.
