I purchased a Wii U (PAL) from United Arab Emirates. Am I limited to buying games for it that originated in that country or can I buy say, UK games?

  • Well, if it's really a PAL console, you should be able to play every PAL game. BUT I would test it first - do you have a friend or a place where you can lend a game? – 5pike Jul 31 '13 at 6:51


as long as your Wii U is a PAL console, it can play any Wii U PAL game, as the PAL region is one single region.


Yes, your Wii U will play any region game which works on PAL systems.

  • This question isn't asking about PAL to NTSC. It's asking about a PAL console playing PAL games from a different region. – Frank Aug 16 '13 at 19:03
  • i answered it will play any region game. only this can't play region:america games – iMAGEbox Aug 16 '13 at 19:06
  • According to your answer, the Wii will only play European and Asian games. This console comes from the United Arab Emirates; how does that work with only Europe and Asian games? – Frank Aug 16 '13 at 19:08
