    Will American Idol brick the Wii?

    Hi there - I'm a n00b, but am going to ask this anyways. A friend of mine has a GC2-D2C Wii modded, and is trying to play American Idol US version straight from the shrinkwrap package (a gift).

    The game insists on doing a system update, but my friend is worried about bricking. Is this cause for concern?

    If the Wii is NOT a USA Wii then Yes it will brick it if you do the update.

    Ca

    It was purchased in Canada so I'm guessing it is.

    Any other way to tell?

    Yes, if you go to the Wii Settings you will see the current firmware version on the top right of the screen, something like 3.2U, the U represents a USA Wii (NTSC-U), if says J then its Japan (NTSC-J) and if its E then its Eurpean (PAL). If the Wii was purchased from a regular retail store in Canada then it will be NTSC-U and updates from all US games is safe.
