do you think that it will be possible to go online (gameplay and virtual console) in the UK with a foreign machine?Tetlee said:Sounds very promising, especially for me as I'll more than likely be importing the Wii console from Asia or the US anyway. Would like to still be able to buy games from the AVForums Classified section so this would be perfect!

i agree, if the release dates are so close together and they wiis are region free then it makes sense to buy a uk machine for the peace of mind of a warranty. i can't wait.barijohn said:I could be wrong but I remember reading that the Wii was being released in Europe either 1 week before USA and Japan or 1 week later.
Not really importing if this is the case which why it might be region free.
not long to go though!!!
Currently that is my thinking. However I just can't get excited about the 360 as there are no games jumping out and saying buy me! (IMO)dgibbs said:That could be a great touch, and another selling point for the machine. I can see a lot of people getting the 360 for power and the Wii for innovation, for the best of both worlds, instead of paying about the same for a PS3.
i read in a nintendo magazine today that the wii will almost certainly be region locked - gutted.eddidaz said:Although that would be great, it would be a very bold move from Nintendo.
Handhelds are always region free. The bloke might have been on about the older games we'll be downloading.
