    I did this "mistake" and NTSC-J Wii can for example ONLY play the NTSC-J version of Mario Galaxy since the PAL and NTSC-U version looks for english system language which the Japanese Wii doesn't have so I haven't still enjoyed Super Mario Galaxy and also my Japanese Wii has the artifact problems so I'm quite screwed over...

    EDIT : Also before my NTSC-J Wii I had a PAL Wii and I still regret not getting a NTSC-U Wii but I will eventually get one.

    It happened to me with my preordered launch Wii... had to send it back to Nintendo after about a month. Fortunately Nintendo has excellent customer service and my new one has had no problems.

    Unless you understand japneese, I don't recommende you to buy one!

    The comptibiliy with PAL/NTSC-U is very poor.

    perhaps you could play ANIME games like NARUTO and BLEACH

    That's what I thought when I bought my NTSC-J Wii but since Bleach and Naruto Shippuuden 2 is playable on a NTSC-U Wii it's no problems and I got my NTSC-J Wii when Naruto Shippuuden 1 got out which wasn't playable on NTSC-U Wii but since Shippuuden 2 works on NTSC-U Wii I'll just get one.

    the ntsc-u/ntsc-j compatibility is pretty high...
