That's some kind of old analog TV spec. from days of yore. Has it come to be shorthand for anything that is region-locked to the US? And is PAL as inappropriately used to mean "European region." I mean, when folks say they have an NTSC/PAL 3DS, I want to LMAO: it sounds like they trying to hook it up with some coax or SCART cable to the old TV in the attic because they're not satisfied with the small screen and would like lower resolution on a huge CRT? Talk about retro!
