Wii will be region-restricted after all

Wii will be region-locked

Nintendo of America's marketing VP, Perrin Kaplan, has supposedly erred in saying that the Wii will be region-free by default. A Nintendo UK spokesperson tells GamesIndustry that the Wii will in fact be "region-locked," meaning that games released in Japan (for instance) will probably not be playable on Wiis bought in Europe or the Americas. Conversely, it seems likely that PS3 games from the East will have no obstacles in North America.
