    It's the region format, PAL is for europe, australia, and a few other places
    NTSC if for north america

    edit: There's a slight chance it might work, but generally no, they do not

    if you live in the USA, make sure it either says NTSC or Region Free. PAL is the standard in asia.

    Sorry if you read a little down the page it stated that PAL was used mainly in Europe and Asia.
