PAL vs NTSC Gamecube ( or Wii ) purchase inquiry -
| posts: 8,301 | Location: NZ
Im wanting to purchase a gamecube or wii with gamecube compatibility, but i would like to get an NTSC version of the gamecube as to avoid the PAL issue of being locked at 25fps/50hz vs the NTSC's 30/60fps (which is important for Star Wars Rogue Squadron/MGS TS (imo).
Do you think its worth it or do you think im just having a moment of materialism?
Is the PAL Wii with GC compatibility affected by the 25/50Hz issue?
Is it worth the effort of locating NTSC games, or would i have to look at modding the console.
I can emulate pretty much all the games i like from the GC on my PC ( except Star Wars Rogue Squadron ), but i agree with OP and the other posters in keasy's thread about how its nice having the OG kit on hand.
Edit: Ive just found this site in regards to imported games and playing them.
Hey thanks for the offer Veteran, but i think your right, i'll just stick to emulating.
Thanks for that info scatman839.
Also, for anyone else who's had the issue with Resident Evil 0 not going above 25 frames or frequent drops from 30, the latest master build has the game running a constant 30 (game itself is hardcoded to 30).
