I was looking into PS2 Modding for the PS2 the girlfriend and I just bought, settling on a softmod option - until we realised we can't play ps1 backups!
I used to have a chipped PS1 back in the day, but it was broken some years ago, however I did end up buying a new PSOne (one of the small ones) that I didn't do much with. I found it, and the old backups I used, but theres the problem I have - backups, with an unmodded PS1, and I'm certainly not keen on the potentially-dangerous (to both my hand and my hardware!) swap-trick.
I'm not sure how upto date some of the PS1 info on this forum is, and google seems to be conflicting. I'm assuming modchip install would still be the best option, but does anyone know where I could find some that would post to the UK? (If not UK based) Also, I'm not overly brilliant at soldering - would the install be difficult?
Cheers for your help everyone!
