What are the differences between the various modchips?
What are the differences between the various modchips? –
Sorry for a n00b topic, but I couldn't find a FAQ/tutorial, and wouldn't know what to search for.
basically 2 categories - originals and clones.
clones - cheap and sometimes naasty, non upgradable, specific clones needed for certain ps2 versions.
originals - upgradable, more expensive.
they all allow you to play backups. some have dev1/2 mode which allow you to boot from mc etc etc
are you looking for any specific things from modchips?
I'm not really sure which features distinguish them, so I'm not sure what I'm looking for, lol.
I was looking for one that didn't require an AR or GameShark, and played PS1 backups as well.
If it had other features, it wouldn't hurt.
Don't care if it's solder or non-solder.
You'd be hard-pressed to find a chip these days that does require AR/GS. You may want to check out Crystal Chip and Matrix Infinity.
I was looking at the Crystal Chip 2.0 anyway, but I was just wondering what firmware upgrades/hacked firmware did...
