I didn´t know where to post this. I had three possibilities: TRLegend section, General Chat section, and Technical Support. Well, I chose General Chat. Mods, feel free to move it. Here is my doubt:
I have the possibility to get the PAL version of TRL. An uncle of mine works in Europe and might bring me a copy of it in a couple of hours when he comes here. I was wondering...do I need the copy to be NTSC. All my games are NTSC. But, for example, Scoopy loopy told me that I just needed a TV capable of supporting PAL. I don´t know if my PS2 is PAL or NTSC. He said that it just depends on the TV. Does anyone know? Thanks in advance:)

I think, it needs to be NTSC if you play all the rest of your games in NTSC? Have you got any PAL games that you could try?

PAL is English, if I'm correct.

PAL is European I think ;)
NTSC is Asia/America I think ;)

So, what should I do? Is it true that there are PAL and NTSC PS2. Then, my PS2 would certainly be NTSC, as Im from America. But if the thing is about TVs, then I would be able to support it.

It's the PS2 not the TV ;) So, I think you should wait till you've got the NTSC game or you're Uncle will waste his money.

Why don't you ask him to pick you up the PC version. It should work on your PC ;)

I wouldnt see the point. It runs in the lowest resolution (and I wont try to enhance it) and I kind of SUCK with the mouse camera system. Im not saying its difficult. I have finished the demo in 8 minutes and its quite easy and fun. But Im not used to combining the mouse with the ASWD movement. I prefer the arrows but its hard to combine with the mouse and everything. Id rather have my beloved PS2 version, even if have to wait some more time:)

Well, now is your time. All of us use NTSC while you and the European countries use PAL. This is the first time something like this happens to me:pand I don´t really like it at all. Almost suffering:D

The best news so far :D
Why was PS2 made with a region system?
