Is my game playable...

I have just received my first online purchase. The game is labelled NTSC J. Is that playable on ans Australian console. I think I may have made a monumental error.

Hi,

If you purchased your console in Australia you have a PAL console. If the game you purchased is NTSC-J on the cover then it will not work on your Australian console. You will get a region code error when trying to play the game on that particular console.

There's unfortunately no way to fix that, you would need to either return that game, or get the game exchanged for your own console's region (PAL).

In the future when making purchases, please be wary of regional console codes such as NTSC (North America), NTSC-J (Certain Asian Countries - mostly Japan), and PAL (Europe).

You can't play NTSC games on a pal console.
