Question about Sony PlayStation 2 Slimline Console
Is pal and ntsc same or different
NTSC and PAL refer to two different analog TV broadcasting standards. In North America and Japan, PS2's and other electronic devices generally are sold in the NTSC format only, as that is the standard used in those parts of the world. PAL devices, on the other hand, are primarily used in Europe, Australia and portions of Asia.
While NTSC and PAL do share some similar properties, images are not displayed the same way on a TV screen with both formats. What this means for the average consumer is that in order to ensure that a PS2 will work with their TV, it will probably need to be purchased in the format used in their home country.
Please keep in mind that while NTSC-to-PAL/PAL-to-NTSC adaptors do exist, many electronic devices (including PS2's) are still subject to regional lockouts that prevent the use of any media/discs that were not purchased in the same region of the world.
Hope this helps you out.
