    i am still quite new to wii mod scene and still looking for information.


    I have 2 question about regions on wii games. If i install a mod chip (any mod chip) on my wii (pal) can i just buy backup copies of other region games and play it straight away, assuming the copies was not region patched.

    can i buy other regions of the retail games and play it on my wii with no problems?


    if yes, which mod chip can do this?

    Um...nar. Region free with any modchip is really dodgy atm.


    I have a better question for everyone else. Are Wii save games region free if you have a modded wii?

    Most mod-chips (?) currently support region-free on-the-fly (ie, no patching required). However, not all games from all regions will currently play on different consoles, regardless of mod-chip. This is a limitation of the current mod-chips themselves. So region-free is only partially supported.

    As far as I know, save games are not interchangeable between regions...
