    Ok, I am about to burn Mario Strikers Charged onto a disc. Is there anything I need to do to play a PAL game on an NTSC console?

    Shouldn't have to do anything special.

    But if you want you could use Brick Blocker on it, and then use RegionFrii to change the region to NTSC-U before you burn.

    Short answer : No
    Long Answer : Yes - click SEARCH and look for a previous posting about this because it depends on if you wii is modded or not , and if your game is patched etc etc etc.

    p.s Follow the red links - they lead to down the rabbit hole.

    This game is available on NTSC, why did you get the PAL one?

    Probably more seeders on the torrent.

    That's my guess at least!
