Best Answer

NTSC stands for National Television Systems Committee. It's the set of standards used for TV and video in the U.S. since 1953.

These are mandated standards for televisions sold in the U.S and some other countrys like Japan. They include an aspect ratio of 4:3, 525 horizontal interlaced scan lines, and 29.97 fps (frames per second).

Since NTSC allows the control of the HUE (tint) of the color unlike PAL that does not, many TV engineers used to say that NTSC stood for "Never Twice Same Color"

How do you play NTSC games on a PAL console?

Firstly you need to have a TV that has both NTSC and PAL color cding systems on it. Once you have that go to the settings of your TV and set the color system to AUTO. Then when you insert a NTSC disc it will automatically go into NTSC mode and vice versa. If you don't have an NTSC TV. You can buy a converter that converts NTSC to PAL. this is available in any leading hardware store. Hope this info was Helpful
