Haha yeah I spent 100 on an Xbox with upgraded RAM recently but I guess I'll import a fat NTSC console and change the PSU. I have a spare one ;)

Fifo was banned for insinuating thay I can't import a console when I actually can if I want.

I'm looking to get all NTSC consoles :)

Yeah I assumed you had trouble getting one:

Great :)

Steo was banned for wanting to give NTSC a try. It does mean you’d (N)ot get (T)he (S)ame (C)olor through a compos-h-ite video connection.

(referring to the “Never The Same Color” joke):
A Wikipedia user wrote:When compared to PAL in particular, NTSC color accuracy and consistency is sometimes considered inferior, leading to video professionals and television engineers jokingly referring to NTSC as Never The Same Color, Never Twice the Same Color, or No True Skin Colors, while for the more expensive PAL system it was necessary to Pay for Additional Luxury. PAL has also been referred to as Peace At Last, Perfection At Last or Pictures Always Lovely in the color war.

I'll always be using RGB to get colour but I had never heard of that joke :lol:

Fifo was banned for even thinking I might use compos(h)ite video these days (JK) :P

I know PAL was 50Hz vs NTSC 60Hz but 576p vs 480p. The game being slower in PAL though is what bothers me.

Fifo was banned for calling me out for not having reasons to ban people, yet did it himself a few posts ago.

Composite does have its own charm though.

I’d like to get a VCR someday to be able to record PS1 footage to VHS for that retro look.

Also, yeah, the PAL/NTSC thing is like a two-way fork – PAL has higher vertical resolution (576 lines) & better colo(u)rs but a lower refresh rate (50 Hertz), while NTSC has higher refresh rate (60 Hz) at a tradeoff of having a lower res (480 lines).

The Jonster was banned for ninja-ing me while I was in the middle of writing a post. It’s not fun, having to rethink what to write. >:(

Haha I just scrolled thorugh the post history to get some inspiration for a ban reason.

The guy nicknamed Jonster was banned for being too lazy to figure out that I scrolled back & forcing me to explain instead.

The Jonster was banned for somehow being able to function on very little sleep when 8 hours can still leave me feeling pretty bad some days.
