Which FF XII and PS2 version should I buy?
I want to buy a PS2 (should be new, not used), mainly for playing Final Fantasy XII. (maybe I'll also buy the other titles, just to have a piece of history in my home :-) (and play them some day) )
Now there's a whole bunch of different versions of Final Fantasy XII around and I'm really not sure which one is the best to buy. Not to mention that not all versions run on all PS2's. (there's the original, the PAL version (seems to be speeded up by a few percent), a slightly modified/newer version of the NA/PAL versions, and an "International: Zodiac..." version with many improvements but I think only available in JP. And maybe even more versions I didn't find.)
Then there's the question which PS2 revision to buy, I guess the "slim" model, but even then there are a handful of versions, which different chips, etc. (see e.g. on wikipedia, sorry I can't post links yet).
Not to mention the PAL/NTSC thing. I'm from Europe (Switzerland) so I guess it might have to be PAL, but I'm not sure about that stuff, I have a Denon AVR-1911 where all my video goes in (mostly HDMI).
I would be very thankful for some hints on what to buy!
(maybe I should add this, I don't plan to mod the console. Theoretically I would be willing to if it provides some significant advantage, but I like the original and also original games)
