Is it possible to use the controllers from an NTSC (Japanese / US) Nintendo 64 system on a PAL (EUR) system? Are they the same item or is there a difference?

I don't see why they'd be different; just the power supply and display output devices for consoles should differ from region to region. –  Frank Jan 29 '13 at 23:21

@fbueckert - It appears the original NES controllers were region locked: retro.mmgn.com/NES/Forums/Nes-Controller-NTSC-to-PAL-Conversion –  xiaohouzi79 Jan 29 '13 at 23:25
    
Interesting. I hadn't known that was a thing. –  Frank Jan 29 '13 at 23:27
    
@xiaohouzi79 So, did you try? –  Zommuter Jul 22 '13 at 7:52
