    yes. the issue comes when a ntsc anything is hooked up to a pal tv/console. I would suggest getting the a/v cables to get beter picture and avoid the sometimes problematic signal channel.

    alternatively you can file a small bit of plastic off your na snes to allow super famicom games to play on it.

    It works without issue. I actually bought a Super Famicom back in 2006 and it works like a charm :P Or, like what J-Machine said, removing the plastic tab in the cartridge slot would let an American Snes run Japanese games B-)

    For the record it is usually the other way around -- PAL TVs have supported NTSC for decades at this point where most North American and Japanese NTSC gear has never heard of it. That said the spirit of your post was accurate and it is usually when you try to use PAL (and/or SECAM) gear on such devices.

    I will note though that some of the VGA adapter devices had certain issues with various things like running 60Hz PAL.
