USA - Nintendo Wii Games

If I buy a Nintendo Wii game from the USA, will it work on my UK Wii ?

Only with a Freeloader - Wii games are region locked

Yea, the handhelds are all region-free, but some of the consoles aren't... You can pick up a freeloader (disc you put in before the import one) for about a tenner if you decide you want one.

The freeloader disc will cost you around £8-£12. Might be worth it if you can get your hands on US games. They are cheaper, so you'd make your money back on a few purchases...

Does the free loader disc work everytime, I was going to buy Wii Fit and Mario Cart, both half price in USA.

Haven't tried the Wii one, but I had one on the Gamecube that worked fine each time...

Thing with the Wii, though, is that it has updates, which could potentially stop the Freeloader from working at any time. So you run that risk, I suppose...
