    So I recently got a Wiikey installed.

    I'm very unclear on the nature of PAL games on an NTSC wii. I have friends who say it works fine, however I've also read that a PAL update can brick a NTSC wii. in addition, i've read that some PAL games do not work on an NTSC wii. on the wiikey homepage, it states that PAL wiis can handle most NTSC games, however it writes nothing about NTSC wiis handling PAL games.

    Right now I'm afraid of sticking a PAL game into my USA NTSC wii.

    Can someone clear this up for me?

    I don't know much about it yet, I just modded my Wii a couple of days ago.

    I'll tell you this though; Japanese and European Gamecube games don't work on my Wiikey'ed Wii.

    I thought the Wiikey bypassed all that region stuff.

    thats weird. USA gamecube games work on my PAL wiikey wii.

    Also: wiki.gbatemp.net check the region compatability list before trying to play!
