Just curious about this as it has been mentioned in various places over the years that the US console/board is the best for compatability etc? Is there really any hardware difference (other than the board versions) or is it all down to the region flash?
I know there is a single wire mod for US consoles to correct some display issues with PAL games so I guess there is some kind of a difference? Here is a link to that simple mod:
I can vaguely recall some minor issues on a PAL console with things like the VCD kit that was released in Japan....among others....but this could all still be down to the region flash, whcih could easily be changed
Anybody got anymore detailed knowledge on this?
