    Buying Moded Wii in Singapore--Issues?

    Hi,

    I was considering buying a moded Wii here in Singapore for around $310 with three games. My first question is that are there any downsides of buying a foreign Wii as I plan to only be here for about a month and use it primarily in the States. Will I have trouble getting on the WiiConnect24 if I buy a foreign Wii? Any compatability issues? Especially with games? Thanks, I'm new to the Wii so don't know much.

    Hi wiensalzburg,

    It depends... im not sure what kind of system they use there, I assume PAL?

    If you are going to be spending the majority of your time in the US, I would suggest you getting a NTSC wii as you may encounter problems finding PAL versions...

    I wouldn't recommend it. Just because it's impossiable right now to fully crack the Wii Region protection. Which, means your going to have a hard time finding games that work correctly.

    Hmm, just came across this forum. I will be bringing back my Wii from US to Singapore. I will tell you how it fares. FYI, the US version does not have "Singapore" as a country selection, it is technically not for use in Singapore.

    From what I have gathered on the internet, consoles in both countries use NTSC-U. Will be in Singapore from 15 May onwards and would need to purchase an AC Adaptor before I can test it out.

    Editted: You can get a Wii with for $310 USD? The conversion rate is around 1.52, rounding up to 1.6, it is $496 SGD? In my knowledge, a normal set goes for the retail price of $500 SGD, not modded and no free 3 games. So maybe that set is not a local set and could be an import set.

    wiensalzburg,

    according to many Singapore forums that I have read, Wii has been overpriced in Singapore and it is the same set as the US version. Only the US version comes with a 110V (only) AC Adapter. Not sure if the Singapore version comes with a 220V (only) AC Adapter or a universal adapter.
