I have a UK-bought Gamecube and Wii (which I have been told will not work with US televisions), and some Gamecube games (which I have been told will not work with US Gamecubes/Wiis) - is the same true of Gamecube Memory Cards?

They were bought in the UK and a mixture of official and third party, if that makes a difference?


Gamecube memory cards are not region locked however there is a special caveat to make note of. When using a different region memory card you may need to format the memory card first. Another warning to note, that when using a memory card from another region you can only save games from the same region on that memory card. For example you cannot save a Japanese Super Mario Sunshine save on a memory card with an American Windwaker save on it. However this restriction is only if you are playing Japanese games, NTSC-U and PAL format saves are allowed on the card but not Japanese games.

Hope this helps.
