They want you to buy a new PAL model. 
So you can import their upcoming PAL only releases. 
 
It's good money, trust me.

I think he means the Operation Rainfall games like xenosaga - but you could also just softmod your NTSC wii, import a legit copy, keep it shrinkwrapped and dl the iso.

If you have an SD card you can soft mod your wii yourself to unlock it. It's so easy to not be region locked on the wii.

No, no. 
See, they want you to buy a PAL Wii, so you don't have to soft-mod your NTSC Wii, import a legit copy, unwrap it and play it.
