MY SS will know who I have in a few days (or minutes by my post). Just a quick question, are the Nintendo Wii motes (and accessories) universal. So say I buy an American Classic Controller, or Motion plus (as examples) will they work in Japan?

Supposedly PS3 games are region free while Blu-Rays and online are region locked. No reason. :teehee

Yes, accessories are region free.

I have a question too.  Do American Blu Rays work in Japan?  No reason.    :teehee

Yes, America and Japan are the same Bluray region.

All of Nintendo's controllers have been region free, at least up until N64.

I know DREAMCAST LIGHT GUNS ARE REGION-LOCKED, but I won't get into that.

Yeah, Sega locking the accessories was not only mean-spirited, it was kind of scarring -- I think they were the only console to do that (or at least the only to activate it) but that same damned question enters my mind whenever I think about buying out-of-region accessories for my mixed-bag gaming environment.

Consider my gift sent! :rock

Last year when I was sending to Australia it took me 10 minutes at the post office. This year it took me over half and hour. I had to fill 2 Customs Declaration forms! WTF, I am not sending any biohazard tanks!

It should arrive at its destination in "over one week" the post lady said.

I won't be able to ship mine out until after Thanksgiving. I have to think of a few things to send and look up the regulations for international shipping. Plus I'm hammered at work for the next 2 weeks installing a few projects.

So I'm expecting to send my gifts out somewhere in the next week.

The way you can tell I'm joking is this:
All of Japanbore already has a 360.
Japanese 360s are not actually $5; at one point they were about 80 bucks but not anymore.
While Japanese 360s are cheap-ish, shipping is not, and international shipping even less so. It would likely cost over a hundred bucks to ship something as heavy as a 360.

That being said, I may ship Distantmantra a copy of Operation Troy just because he DOESN'T have a  360. My love is mixed with cruelty, because that's how I roll, yo.

I've actually considered snagging Operation Troy off Play Asia for $15. One of these days I'll get a 360 and they'll figure out some sort of region hack.
