    They're PAL (European). Games from different regions, but in the same language, should work together.

    Regular aussie consoles are definitely PAL, but I haven't a clue about the ds. From what you've said it sounds like the games are (U) though

    I always find it amusing Australians get games before Europe.x

    Most/All of Nintendo's hand-helds are region free.

    People are used to using PAL and NTSC when referring to the different regions.

    This is especially true in europe where NTSC is more a description of release dates than it is a TV standard

    We get a mixture of U and E games when it comes to the DS. Pretty much, if the game comes out around the time of the US, then its the U version, but if it comes out around the same time as Europe, then its the E version. I wouldn't make that a hard and fast rule, but it pretty much is correct.

    No idea as to why some companies decide to release a E version here instead for a console that doesn't require any standards other than their own. It's not like we speak any other official language than English.

    Handheld consoles are neither PAL nor NTSC, because those are TV-standards. Handhelds don't require a TV. The Nintendo DS is also region free.

    I would assume Australia get the same version as the US, since the games are only in English. Correct me if I'm wrong? European releases get delayed when games have to include translations to French and crap like that... Don't know why Aussies would have to wait for games longer than Americans though. That's a mystery to me.

    mostly we get (E) but sometimes a (U) slips thru, eg. warioware twisted

    They just love making Aussies wait till June for Pokemon to come out. Cause you know, it's soooooo hard to simply import a batch and sell them at EB.

    England shouldn't have to wait for an E release. Why should we have to wait 2 months for a game to be converted into french and german when there's already an (almost)english U version?

    Neither should Scandinavia have to wait. They also only play games in English.

    The reason behind it is simple though: They hate us. [​IMG]

    It's because the video game industry doesn't care much for us. It's also why we get over priced games for no reason.

    Could Aus be like a bridge between U and E like how Hong Kong gets both PAL/NTSC, that is Japanese and American versions? I so wanna go back to Hong Kong, Canada isn't as game paradise as Hong Kong.

    And yeah, Canada gets "U.S." version games. Damn haters. It should be called (N) for North America, (A) might be confusing with Asia or Australia. PSP price drops in the states, I never heard any price change of PSP in Canada (maybe because I own one already and not interested in price drop)

    Americans kill for freedom, Canadians negotiated independance [​IMG]

    It's funny how FIFA placed Australia under Asia.. Well either Asia or Europe, Aussie is half a globe away...

    Is it really hard to divide game versions into Language instead of location? That'd solve Aus/UK people waiting 2 months for (E) release.

    Australia is technically in the Asia region of the world.
