I'm looking to mod my PS2 in the near future, but I don't have a clue on how the whole process works! I know nothing about mod chips or anything that revolves around them. I've been interested in getting one for awhile now, but haven't bothered until I saw a article in my local newspaper. A place called "CANMOD". I noticed on their site they have two chips: Magic V 50K($35) and Magic 3.1($25). Could someone give me a quick explanation on the quality of these two chips, and how do they compare to other chips on the market?
In a e-mail I received from "CANMOD", the guy told me, "So the cost of the chip is 35 for a v9 ps2 and 25 for v7 and down then it would be 65 for the install. So depending on the version it will be around 90 or 100 dollars." The prices are Canadian as well. What exactly is a v9 and v7? Does the model of my PS2 come into play when getting a chip installed, I currently own the model SCPH-39010.
As you can tell, I really don't have any knowledge on modchips, but if someone could answer a few of my questions, it would help considerably, since I have many more questions to come.
