    I noticed that on this site they have Wii Remotes and Nunchuck's in stock and cheap shipping to the US, but it says for Japan Wii....

    Are they really region locked? I mean, I can understand the games not working, but the controllers not being compatible? I would think they would work with any system.

    There are US versions listed on the site but of course they are out of stock:

    Can anyone explain/elaborate?

    Controllers for the Wii are not regionlocked. I once asked the Scandinavian distributor of Nintendo, and they confirmed this. Besides, I'm using US Wii Remotes on my EU Wii, and a friend of mine uses a Japanese Classic Controller on his EU Wii/Wii Remote [​IMG]
