Step down converters are very easy to get hold of now. I recently bought a new one of eBay for about £7.

Because it wouldn't work on the vast majority of their TV's. Might as well ask why foreign games aren't in english.

There are probably some legal issues too, like how a game can get a yes from SCE Japan and a no from SCEE. Most publishers do not have branches in all major regions, some strike a deal with another publisher (NISA and Koei), others just don't bother (Working Designs). And Square Enix Europe just plain sucks, but we know that by now.

TVs shouldn't be much of a problem though. TVs made in the past 10 years support 60Hz. It doesn't really matter if they support NTSC or not, a RGB-cable (which costs like £5) will solve that issue.

Suikoden V is getting a European release by the way, it should be in september, though there is no confirmation on the Konami website yet, Contact Data have promised us a reviewcopy (one that I will have to send back within two weeks, bastards).

Sure they're much fewer and the production quality is relatively lower (budgeting etc), but I've heard of some great EU games.


What. like every game Rare made for Nintendo, and Second Sight and Timesplitters?

Or Disgaea. I actually enquired with the European publisher if it will be like the US version... and it's not.
50Hz pal-barred and NO JAPANESE VOICES. When I asked why he said because SCEE didn't approve that O.o

PAL releases, pshaw. Only rarely are they better (see FFIV Advance).

Yes, SCEE didn't want the game on a DVD or something equally stupid. But I heard Koei did get permission to leave the Japanese voices in newers titles.
