Cube Games Region Locked On Wii

Eurogamer's recently had the chance to speak to Nintendo UK about some more of the specifics relating to the region locking of the Wii.

A nintendo spokesperson has told Eurogamer that the Wii will be region locked when playing GCN games. So if you imported your GCN games, you will have to get an imported Wii to play them.

Nintendo also confirmed that the Virtual Console will in fact have region specific releases. Could this possibly mean that we will have the traditional rest of the world to Europe launch delays?
