I havent had a modded console for about 10 years and Im very interested in getting into the PS2 scene but I have a couple of questions which have more or less been covered in various FAQs but Ijust wanted to confirm a couple of things.
1 - I am thinking of getting a premodded system from this supplier. Modchipman.com
Does anyone have any horror stories about modchipman? from the site they look to be a respected supplier.
2 - Im not really interested in homebrew on my PS2 as I have my PSP/PC set up nicely for that. I am interested in the modchip souly for back ups. Based on what I have read the Matrix infinity offered by Modchipmanin the above link will auto detect and play original and/or back up versions of all PS1/PS2/DVD media simply by putting it into the drive. Is this correct?
3 - Final question, Im looking forminimum hassle with the setup, it looks like the premodded machine comes with the chip but no firmware (copyright issues or something?) and I just need to burn the firmware onto a disk (1.9 from the matrix site) and put it into the PS2 drive, turn the machine on and follow the instructions?
I appreciate these are some fairly basic question and may well have been covered elsewhere but you guys seem to be the authority on the matrix infinity and I wanted a little expert confirmation before I went ahead with the purchase.
