How to Buy a Wii in China
The Wii is Cheap and Awesome
So what special considerations do we need to take when buying a Wii in China? Since China is not an official Wii market, the ones on sale here are a mix of imports from other regions. That means that the ones for sale here are unlocked – firmware scrubbed – to accept a wide variety of discs.
Make sure you get an English-ready model
The thing you need to avoid here is a Wii that was made for the Japanese market, because it will likely be in Japanese. When looking on Taobao, make sure to keep English 英文in your searches.

Wii Motion Plus
Word on the street is that this new thing – Wii Motion Plus – is the real deal. It adds a lot of accuracy to what the Wii’s motion detectors can pick up. Right now, people are saying that the new Tiger Woods game is great for demonstrating what this new technology can do. Golf was my favorite Wii Sport, so I am pretty pumped for it.
