Well... it is extreme (X-TREME?), but you can get a different top for your PS2 that has a flip cover for the disc. When the PS2 opens it's drawer, it resets, thus rendering a boot disc unusable. They do sell boot discs with a clam shell top for the PS2. Personally I'd rather just get a Japanese PS2 or mod it rather than have a funky looking system.

Talking about prices how much is an average American PS2 now?:)

It retails for $179.99, and $199.99 with a network adapter.

I'm not sure about that flip top ps2.. But the only way I know of that will let you play import games is by modding your system.

However a guy has found a way to load up games without modding. Something to do with editing a file and downloading it to your memory card, then loading your system with a psx title and then switching it for a ps2 one. Supposedly works with import games, but I dont know. Not much info out on it yet. You can buy modded ps2's or get it modded by someone. Its messy but here in PAL land its a must.

Very true unfortunely! But i guess its the publishers/developers fault for taking so long to release on PAL areas... really i think all games should be developed for all regions in mind since the start, that would lower the time gap of releases between regions and thus we wouldnt have to mod our consoles!

Unfortunaly that would also course 75% of publishers and developers to go Bankrupt. :(

I've always they should release a game in America and then release it in PAL in the UK/Austraila at the sametime or shortly after.

and then the rest of EU later if there gonna at all, if the people from other countries can speak english can import from UK/Aust even that's better then it is now.

so alucard,you trying to say that this guy use a method involving doing 2 disc to load 1 game.........or what ? by the way my ps2 is nstc........................

08-26-2003, 11:43 AM
I'm not sure how it works. Its not really..uh.. could be only for psx games. My tiny brain doesn't understand it. I dont think its perfected yet. Someone else will take the idea and make it better or something. For now you need to mod.

08-26-2003, 12:14 PM
what type of ps2 are you using right now alucard ? cause worried that my ps2 cannot be mod cause my ps2 version is 30000 something.... or my god what should i do ...should i throw it away or buy a new one........:confused: :confused: :confused: :confused:

08-26-2003, 12:56 PM
My 30000 model cost $250 from videogamedepot.com, not a bad deal at all.

08-26-2003, 01:32 PM
My older 30000 is half dead so I was forced to buy a newer one. And wouldn't worry because the chips these days can be fixed to any model system.
