My Wii came with the white remote and numchuk, and I wanted to get a second one, but the white remote has apparently been discontinued in the U.S. The stores only sell the black ones at a higher price. So I bought another white remote on e-bay. The ad said it was imported from Japan and is region free. The remote does work with my Wii (United States, version 4.2u), but I often have to press the Home button multiple times for that button to work. This doesn't happen on the remote that came with the Wii.
Has anybody purchased or used any Wii remotes intended for use in another country and experienced anything similar?
