    This is honestly a guess, but the different languages maybe?

    NTSC-U Multi 2= English/French NTSC-U Multi 3= English/French/Spanish
    PAL games are either country release dependent for language or Multi 4-7

    Edit: Sometimes NTSC-U Multi 2 can be either Spanish or French

    multi-language games didn't start showing up until the playstation/n64 era there wasn't the space on the storage mediums for developers to put more then one language, and at that time north america wasn't as diverse as it is now.

    I think ubisoft is one of the big names that started multi-3, I'm pretty sure it was with Rayman 2: The Great Escape

    You should do some research on canada, I have 2 step-brothers from the US that now live here, from what I understand the school curriculum doesn't teach about Canadian history, where here in canada we learn about history about canada and the US
