I read all the reviews for this, checked my software version etc and thought I had covered all bases. I was sent a game from family in Canada for Christmas, so purchased freeloader to be able to play. I loaded it as it says in the instructions, and it did an upgrade load which I couldnt stop from happening. Now my Wii will not work at all. I have just spoken to a Wi repair plce and have been told that this will cost between £30 and £70 to fix depending on the "bricking" which is what has happened. Now I know the software people will not tak responsibility as there are warnings all over the instructions, BUT I couldn't cancel the upgrade, I had no option once I had inserted the game disc it just did it. In theory this is a great item, but I do wonder whther the new games have something in them which means the updates stop the machine working, wouldnt be hard for Nintendo to do this to stop people having multi region capabilities??????? I dont know, all I do know is that I am left with an unusable Wii, and it's now gonna cost me a fortune to be able to play anything on my console again! So as my title says - be wary!!!!!
