No, the American Ps2 game will not load on Australian one because in Australia the TV system mode is PAL and the in America its NTSC standard.You can't load any game until your Ps2 is modded.You can buy a modulator than can convert PAL to NTSC and vice versa.
While Nintendo Wii games are not region-coded, the hardware itself is made in both NTSC and PAL formats. In order for a video game to function with your Wii, it would need to be in the same format as your Wii console. This unfortunately means that video games purchased from NTSC compliant countries, such as the U.S., will not function with the PAL consoles sold in Australia.
Hey abinanth, NTSC and PAL refer to two different analog TV broadcasting standards. In North America and Japan, PS2's and other electronic devices generally are sold in the NTSC format only, as that is the standard used in those parts of the world. PAL devices, on the other hand, are primarily used in Europe, Australia and portions of Asia. While NTSC and PAL do share some similar properties, images are not displayed the same way on a TV screen with both formats. What this means for the average consumer is that in order to ensure that a PS2 will work with their TV, it will probably need to be purchased in the format used in their home country. Please keep in mind that while NTSC-to-PAL/PAL-to-NTSC adaptors do exist, many electronic devices (including PS2's) are still subject to regional lockouts that prevent the use of any media/discs that were not purchased in the same region of the world.

Nope. UK TVs are set up for PAL video format, which isn't compatible with NTSC format. The only way to do it would be to get a modchip for your Wii (I personally don't recommend this), or find somebody with an American TV.
According to information provided by the manufacturer, the Nintendo Wii is currently available in both the NTSC and PAL formats. Due to fact that the U.S. primarily utilizes NTSC-format devices, the vast majority of Wii's sold through U.S. retailers most likely would be NTSC-compatible models - this would also apply to the video games sold for the console itself. Keep in mind that there may be some exceptions, but they will most likely be limited to specality stores and direct importers.
In order to ensure that a Wii purchased within the U.S. functions overseas, you would need to make sure that the TV it is connected to is capable of supporting the NTSC format and that the video game(s) purchased for the console were obtained/imported through a country that utilizes the NTSC format as well (U.S., Canada, or Japan). Unfortunately, PAL-coded games may not function in an NTSC-formatted console, and visa versa.
