Wii is Not Region-Free

Wii games will not be region-free according to Nintendo UK’s General Manager David Yarnton. Nintendo of America was incorrect in announcing that the Wii would be region-free, and that the console will in fact be “region-locked.” It means that games bought in one region won’t work on a console of another region, shattering hopes that imported games would work without any kind of special hacking.
