Wii Not Region Free after all?

September 18, 2006

Nintendo UK is now reporting that the Wii is region locked after all. Nintendo of America is credited with the initial statement that the Wii would be region free. At this point we have 2 different statements from different arms of the company. I think it’s safe to say that any plans on the Wii being region free should be put on hold until NOA confirms or denies the initial comment.
