    Or they could be 99 years in front [​IMG]

    Now that the Korean Key has been released though I wonder if they'll also switch to scrubbed releases that end up XXXXd.

    Seriously, how long does it take to localize a golf game?

    why should korean people even buy a korean wii, when there are only a few games out???
    importing from US is the better choice...
    (does the homebrew channel work on korean wiis?)

    The homebrew channel works on Korean Wiis, but it requires a modchip to install (Twilight Princess has not been released in Korea so there is no hack)

    Also it's really silly for EA to release this game now. They have already anounced a release date in December for Tiger Woods '09.

    Sales for the Wii in Korea have been extremely low. It's always funny to hear about Wii shortages in other parts of the world because any shop will have stacks of them here. The serious gamers already imported Japanese or US consoles long before the release here, and Nintendo has not been attracting the targeted casual market. This is also the first time in console gaming history that Korea was not placed in the same region as Japan. Koreans are accustomed to buying Japanese games because they usually come out much earlier than localized Korean software. With the Wii it's not possible without modding, and people are not at all happy about it.

    What really bombed in Korea was GBA. Only had about 6 or 7 Korean-language games released, all were third-party. None published or developed by Nintendo.

    That's not true. The GBA actually did very well in Korea considering that it was never officially launched by Nintendo. Japanese imports sold like crazy. The fact that 7 Korean games were released when no Korean GBA units were available must say something. Nintendo of Korea wasn't started until 2005 and the reason was mostly the success of the GBA. The DS was the first Nintendo product to be officially sold in Korea and it has been selling very well. The Wii so far seems to be a failure.
