SG-1000:Region Information

Given that it was only largely sold in Japan with a very limited release in New Zealand and a semi-official release in Taiwan, the SG-1000 does not have any kind of region protection so games sold in any region will function. This also applies to the SC-3000, which saw a more extensive release in PAL regions such as Australia and France. However, games which were coded for Japanese systems (the vast majority of the SG-1000/SC-3000 library) will run too slow on PAL systems and will have a slightly letterboxed screen. Conversely, games coded for a PAL system will run slightly too fast.
