    Well, I'm buying a japanese Wii next week while visiting Tokyo. I'm going to softmodd it with the usual stuff, allowing it to play imports and occasional back-ups. However while serching the net I came across som trubbeling info. The info was quite old though so I decided to post this topic in hope of getting some clearification. My questions are:

    1. Will I be able to play all (or close to all) PAL/US-Games with USB-loader on my japanese Wii?

    2. Will some games only display japanese text and audio even though it's an english version game?

    Maybe the smarter thing would be to buy a PAL Wii or maybe use AnyRegionChanger? Or is the compatibility issue very small or even non-existing?

    Thank you for your time!

    1] yes. USB loaders override most settings and can play most games no problem.

    2] i doubt it, if they do you can force the video to NTSC.

    Excellent, thank you for the answers and also, thank you for the superb mod-guide. Will definitely use it as soon as I have my Wii!
