Quick question - will a PAL scope work with a Japanese Super Famicom?

Japanese pads work on UK consoles, but if there's any issue at all about the PAL Super Scope running on an NTSC console, I'm guessing it'll be the screen refresh rate causing an issue.

Thanks for the reply gunbladelad. The good news for me is that the scope worked fine with the SFC.

The bad news is I'm finding Yoshi's Safari a tad difficult.

That's good to know. Like I said, the only issue I could foresee would've been the 60Hz refresh rate on the NTSC signal being picked up on a device that may well have been configured to run on a 50hz PAL signal. Good to know there's no problem though.
