    Can anyone tell me whether the Nintendo Wii gaming machine is cheaper in LOS than the UK

    Or has anyone got one for sale in the North west England?

    Checked price of Wii last week when buying DS Lite games in MBK Centre. The price was similar to UK but was offered with choice of 10 games (machine probably chipped and supplied with copied games).Electronic products have high import duty in Thailand and so are not very competitive. Checked cameras and compared mobile phones recently bought for the kids at Xmas in UK, UK prices were cheaper.

    Funny enough I have just returned from a friends place and we was just playing the tennis game. First time I have played on it and it is fabulous.

    I saw them in LOS - similar price but I was worried about region coding etc.

    Price was similar to UK but they were available.

    (also looked at EEE PC which they had at 12900 baht so yet again similar price.

    Highly likely that your Wii was modded to play 'backup' disks and all regions.
