    Nintendo Wii or DS - from Canada

    Hello, i wonder if someone can help me, we are going to Canada next week and i am looking at getting a Wii and DS from there, could anyone tell me if they are compatible in the UK?

    The ds would be the better option as games on the ds are region free. American, japanese, uk games will all work etc. Also all you would need would be a UK charger which you can get for a few quid.

    The wii will only play american games and not uk ones that you buy here.

    I believe you will be fine with the DS, you will just need to get a UK charger.
    I would expect the Wii to be NTSC though, so you will only be able to play games from 'Over there' unless you go to the expense of getting it chipped.

    You may also get stung by customs on the way back.
