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.

Wii sports resort brought in america for present in england but will not work will it only work in america or is there anything we could do. many thanks.


Do not think so as the television standards in England are different that in North America. I suspect that it will not work in France either as those standards are different. When the games are decoded, they are decoded for the American standard. You could offer it on E-bay for some one to purchase or perhaps exchange it for an English version

We bought the Wii Mario Kart in England and it won't work on our Wii station in the US. We get a message that says "unable to read the disc". What should we do?


It's from a different region, so it won't work at all unless you either:
A) Buy a european Wii
or
B) Mod your Wii to free up the regions.
North America and Japan (as well as some other random places) use NTSC format, while Europe (and other random places) use PAL format. You can't play PAL on NTSC and vice-versa.

My son bought a PS3 game from the UK but it won't play on his game system here in Canada. What has to be done to fix this problem?


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.
