Does Nintendo Wii work abroad?
Nintendo Wii's sold within the United States will primarily be NTSC-formatted devices. Unfortunately, because Europe utilizes the PAL format instead of NTSC, you would need to have an NTSC-compliant TV in order to use a Wii purchased within the U.S.
Please also keep in mind that video games are often region-coded to work only with the consoles sold in the same area of the world. In other words...if you were to purchase a Wii within the U.S., you would only be able to play video games purchased within the U.S. as well.
Additionally, remember that the United States and Europe use different electrical standards: 110V/60Hz for the U.S. and 220V/50Hz for Europe. In order for any electrical device purchased within the U.S. to function properly overseas, a voltage adaptor may be required.
Hope this helps you out.
Go Ahead. Use Us.
