England uses a different video standard called PAL. Only use games marked PAL standard. US uses NTSC which has a different method and unreadable on a European Wii.

Can i use my wii i brought in england in usa


I believe England uses a PAL system as USA / Canada uses NTSC. You'd have to set your Wii settings to compensate. Also, power outlets in England are different from outlets in North America. You'd also need a new power adapter.

I had bought a new nintendo wii from america and when i used for the first time in india there was apower fluctuation and bam my wii is not working what is the problem?


i believe the voltage in India is in the 230-240 volt range here in America around 110 volt if that is the case you might need to talk to the Nintendo repair center http://www.nintendo.com/corp/distributors.jsp
i wish you the best of luck

Hi yeah most of the time you can't play foreign games. so sorry mate. on a homeland original console you can't play specific games from other areas. like America and Canada are same but America and england are not.

Wii won't load new games


That sounds rather odd to me, as I have bought a variety of games with really good graphics and such and none of them have given me that kind of message at all.

I would recommend checking with Nintendo before 'upgrading' the console, to make sure it is okay with them. It is odd that the game is making the recommendation, in my opinion.
