Frequently Asked Questions About Our Retro Games




Are your games compatible with my console?

All games supplied by Trippy Trades are 100% compatible on PAL systems, unless stated otherwise. Whilst we do offer NTSC games, Games from other regions are in their own separate section.  

What is PAL? What is NTSC-J? What is NTSC U/C? and what is the difference?

PAL and NTSC is the format of a region. Majority of retro games and consoles that are played in Australia are PAL region. Games and consoles released in Australia are PAL. A PAL game can only be played on a PAL console, a NTSC-J game can only be played on an NTSC-J console And a NTSC-U/C game can only be played on an NTSC-U/C console and so on..... 

But rest assured we have games from regions other than PAL placed in different sections which are separate to your PAL games so you're browsing PAL only games! 

What languages are your games?

All the games we sell are the full English language versions, unless stated otherwise. However some games offer the option to change the language to English in the settings.
