Can someone please let me know how the Wii U is region locked?
ie. what are the regions that games can be bought from for both the Wii U and how this applies to backwards compatibility for Wii games?
From what I could find on region locking for Wii games , Australia and Europe share the same region (PAL), so one would surmise that Nintendo would use the exact same region methodology for the Wii U, as it has not changed since the Nintendo 64.
