Right, I just wanted to ask one simple question. If I were to buy a PAL version of the game (I live in the UK), would there be any way to play with friends using the NTSC version? From searching around I'm pretty sure the answer is no, I just wanted to make sure.
I do not know for sure, because I never played the game, but I do not see any reason why you cannot play online with your friends when you are using a PAL version and your friend use the NTSC version. Let's take Mario Kart Wii as an example: even though I have a PAL version, I can still play online worldwide.
If it would have been me, I would have downloaded the PAL version of the game and try playing it with my friends and if it worked go to a store and buy it. But, that is what I would have done in your position, you are free to do as you wish.
