    I'm getting ready to install my wiikey, but I have one question...like the topic says, will a PAL game play on a NTSC system? If not, is there a program to convert PAL to NTSC? I've seen NTSC to PAL converters, but not the other way around.

    Thx

    some PAL games will have no problem being played on NTSC/U system. I've tried Blazing Angels Squadrons of WWII PAl on my NTSC machine. No problem what so ever..

    check this list

    (but that list confuses me.. i could play Blazing Angles PAL version.. hurm..)

    I've been having trouble getting PAL games to load up on my NTSC/U with a Wiikey. So far, the ones I've picked up just get a disc error. Bad luck maybe? I'll have to get a confirmed working one and make sure it isn't just my system...

    And let's all add our experiences to the Wiki you linked there. There is a fairly poor showing of PAL-to-NTSC/U games, 12 out of 130+?

    I too have problems running PAL on my US console. I wasted about 10+ expensive DVD-r's.....then I gave up. NOt worth the money + time. I'll just wait for the US releases. [​IMG]

    Um, pick up some DVD+RW discs. Then you can test any of them.
