question about duo2 –
im just wondering if a modded v1, v2, v3, or v4 ps2 with the duo2 modchip, can play the newer games? or does it have the same problem as the magic3.1?
It should be able to play all games, except for the ones which their lasers don't support ;p
Which games would that be? I don't think what you said is true. All PS2/PSX games are on DVD9,DVD5, and CD-R format, if you can burn them you can play them. It's not like Sony uses DVD-RW... That's where they will have problems.

I think the main problem with those old consoles is exactly that what Artifact mentioned, and well many of the "problems" of these old consoles are mostly LASER related problems and if you use a quality mod it almost does not matter what type of console you solder that into, but you'll be in trouble if you waste 1-2 hours with soldering them into an OLD console with a dead/partially dead laser. (as then you either swap the laser which costs some bucks or desolder the mod and install that into a newer console which probably has a better laser...) The Magic 2/3/3.x had their own issues that were almost independent of the console version (let's not talk about the V7, as it had its own protection with those few games) but a quality mod solved everything in every console version.
Thanks for that uns. To clarify, I read into his question and assumed he meant which BACKUP games it could play. Of course all original games would work, otherwise Sony would be complicating matters for those who paid $800AUD for PS2's when they were first released (showing that those who buy the first model of a console don't always get the best deal, they're paying more for something which will most assuredly have issues later on in life). However, the games able to be played are simply limited by what media you're burning onto ;p i.e. if you had an uber old laser and tried to say... play a backup of Champions of Norrath (Dvd9), it may or may not be able to read it. I think we're all correct in this matter ;>
