Enhcanced 3DO games by region

Post by Trev » Sat Feb 17, 2007 6:32 pm

I remember reading about how the UK version of VR Stalker was enhanced over the NTSC version (I hope it was substantial, as I thought that game was poor) It got me thinking though, are there other games that are superior based on the region they were released in? In the case of VR Stalker, I'm guessing a delay between the US & UK versions allowed them to improve it.

As collectors, I'm sure some of us must have multiple versions of the same title. Has anyone ever noticed a difference between any?

Lord god no. If the Uk version is enhanced, I pity anyone who played the NTSC version.

Yeah good old 17% slower PAL with it's letterbox display. There is nothing quite like sloppy conversion of a game to really make me want to move to the States or to Japan.

This is of course only if the original NTSC versions weren't adapted correctly (or at all) for PAL.

As for the two auctions: Same game, there's no difference! The game was not adapted to PAL, hence the back of the European box says that it displays in a letterbox format on a PAL unit (all non-adapted games do).
