View Full Version : Difference between Wii's?

December 24th, 2006, 14:21
I was just wondering if anyone knows if there are any major differences (such as hardware or software?) between the Australian Wii and the American Wii?

I'm planning on buying one from America but if the Australian one has anything extra (since it was released afterwards) I'll probably end up getting it here.

The Wii is also region locked (last I heard), so if you buy your Wii in America, you have to play American games. If you live in Australia, it'll definitely be much easier for you to buy it in Australia so you don't have to import all your games.

Looks like I'll be buying it in Australia.
Thanks for the help guys.
