    It definately will. It also features S-video out which is really nice.

    If you venture into the FM Towns marty realm. Make sure the games are compatible with the Marty. Just because it says FM-Towns does not mean you will be able to play it on a Marty system.

    It should, both US & Japanese TVs are NTSC. The only thing you might need to play it on the safe side is the convertor for the power. I believe you can do it without it, but you still run some risk.

    The item weighs 3800g, so go to row "Up to 4000g" in the chart, then across to the second column ("North America") and read the prices:

    EMS $68 SAL $62

    EMS = ( Express Mail Service ) 3-7 DAYS ( insurance )
    SAL = ( Economy airmail ) 7-30 DAYS ( No insurance )

    Thanks alot. He made that chart REALLY confusing. I guess he made it universal for all his items.

    Brazil & Argentina are PAL-M (I think), which is actually closer to NTSC than it is to European PAL. Australia & NZ are PAL aswell. Oh, and France is SECAM, which is pretty close to PAL.
