    advice needed - Black wii v4.3U (Pal formatted disc question)

    I'm new to this forum and have extensively searched to find the answers to my question but haven't been able to find anything.

    I currently own a US Black wii running 4.3U and I would like to import / purchase an upcoming PAL format wii disc from the UK but was wondering if a soft or hard mod would allow me to do this or which would be better. From everything i've been reading I understand that it would work with a backup but just wanted to confirm before i purchase the actual disc and mod the system.

    any help would be greatly appreciated.

    thanks

    You can indeed use a disc from another region using either a hard or a softmod. Which one is 'better' is mostly a matter of personal preference and most people who have hardmodded their wii, also softmodded it.

    A backup disk? not on a black wii console.
    Sent from my van, down by the river.

    Thanks, when I mentioned backup as far as i understand can only be done via USB and not with a burned DVD and if I'm reading your response correctly an actual purchased retail disc from another region will work even if it's in the pal format.
