1UNSOLUTEDSALTTue 12th Mar 2013 I have been looking around for a deal on a 3DS XL system and I've been perusing ebay. I notice the systems have the distinction of PAL and NTSC, but when I google searched what this meant, there are only two topics about it. One says such a thing isn't possible on a handheld because it relates to TV signals, and another talks about region locking. I'm just curious if it IS possible on a handheld or if there is another way to tell if a system is from a different region. My thinking is that since most of the sellers are from the US (like me) they don't know about the difference and so even though it says it's a PAL system, it really can only be a NTSC system. But any help to clarify would be helpful. Come visit my site, Casual Monster Hunter. It's a collection of online resources to aid in learning the ropes. It also has a tool to exchange/organize hunting sessions with friend codes. There's also a Google+ community for those who want to do more than read about Monster Hunter.
