    a modded wii doesnt mean its region free.
    we still gotta play our own regions. Unless there patched.

    In order for you're wii to be region free it has to be modded, although some games still don't work. Check out the compatibility list below
    http://wiki.gbatemp.net/index.php?title=Wii_Region_Patcher_Compatibility_List

    Best way to know if it's modded or not is to try a burned game or a NTSC-U game, although be careful when running games from other regions, if you're wii's firmware isn't up to date and the game you're playing has a firmware update on it you could brick you're wii.

    So if the english games you're playing are indeed NTSC-U then you have a modded wii.

    I think Gamecube games are going to be region free with the new update Wiikey.

    It's already partially region free with GC games, it's just hit or miss which ones work. But yeah the wiikey guys are saying that it'll boot all GC games region free once the update comes out.

    If you are playing out of region games on an NTSC-J wii, then yes, it has been modded.
