I live in Hong Kong and I imported the North American Wii. I cannot select any country in Asia for my console registration, so I chose Connecticut, US, even though I am several thousand miles away. Could've been Antigua. Could've been Venezuela.

I was also amazed by the number of game stores around - they were everywhere. Im guessing you would mainly get Japanese Wiis? (I wuold have bought more DS/Wii games - but I can't speak/read Japanese :
