    It's easiest with TV that accepts PAL, but it's still typically quite easy to force modes if not.

    NTSC means frequency of 60Hz
    PAL is frequency of 50Hz
    If you run a game from a different region and you get bad quality video (like black and white), your tv doesn't support that region
