    So I'm planning to buy some wii remotes, gamecube controllers and memory cards and a balance board from America. So will they work properly on my European Wii???

    Pretty sure, lots of people imported the Super Famicon/SNES controller from Japan, the one given as a Club Nintendo freebie(I want one [​IMG])

    The Wii console is identical from region to region, just a firmware difference. I don't see why the peripherals would be any different.

    [​IMG] I have a Japanese SNES/Famicon controller, works great!

    Yeah, all that is different is the firmware on the NAND. I was thinking of importing one, never got to it. [​IMG]

    ((Offtopic)(Would you be willing to test a banner I made, it's my first and I don't have LoZ TP just in case to unbrick(a banner brick), if you can unbrick. Please? Or someone who can unbrick[I send the wad without the ROM file, which should be the game, right?]))
