    Us Will American games work on my Japanese Wii?

    Hey fellas,
    I'm in Japan and have softmodded my wii with priiloader etc, it plays backups fine.
    I want to play call of duty black opps. As I'll have to order it from Amazon because it's not available here, will it work on my JP wii? Priiloader is region free isn't it?
    Thanks for any help!

    Priiloader allows you to force region on a game so you can play an original out-of-region game on your Wii but sometimes, it isn't perfect. Plus your Television has to be able to support both video types.

    You have to go to priiloader and turn on the region free hack. It may not work 100% , your other option would be to load it from neogamma.

    SO in theory there is a high chance that it'll work, or have there been problems with C.O.D? Perhaps if I ripped it to my hard disc would it play on that too?

    Yes, there is a high chance it will work. If it doesn't work with priiloader, try neogamma like i said. If you wan't it will work fine on a CFG usb loader also, i dont htink it will have a problem.

    Well...Japanese games play fine on my US Wii. We're both NTSC regions so you don't have to force video or anything.
