Okay, I was researching the different versions of PS2 that were out there. All of the sites I went to only listed 7 versions in their version ID guides. And I made sure that the PS2 I bought at the store was the 39001 so it would V7. Now, I happened to be looking around at different places and have seen references to a V8 which is identifiable by the 080 BIOS. This same site also had info regarding a Magic 4.1 chip that would work with the new V8. But I haven't seen this anywhere else. All other sites I've seen reference Magic 3.6 which is compatible with V4/5/6/7.
Is V8 bogus? Is Magic 4.1 bogus? What's the real deal?
