Question about buying PAL/JP versions of games

Post#1 » Wed Jan 25, 2017 11:14 am

So I've noticed that PAL and JP versions of games like Power Stone 2 are usually way cheaper than their US versions. So I was wondering if it would be worth it to buy these versions of expensive games like Power Stone 2 instead of the US versions to save money, or if I should just save up for the US versions.

it's your choice, as it is your money...personally I prefer games of my own region over the others, as you won't need a boot disk to play em

It's depending. If you're buying the JP/PAL games for your video games collection, buy what you like. If you're planning to play with that JP/PAL games, you will need JP/PAL Dreamcast console to play with that games.
