i'm in the process of moving, and through all the clutter and garbage in my closet i dug out my old dreamcast and the giant folder of game backups from my high school days of l33t haxor-ing.
hours and hours of awesome fighting games and skies of arcadia later, i got to thinking - first of all, i need to finish packing up all this crap. second of all, i need to find a way to play all the cool, obscure, and exorbitantly expensive sega saturn and psx games i've always read about. unfortunately, since my computer is an aging, loud dinosaur and i'm the kind of guy that likes to play video games in bed on my TV, emulation is out of the question.
fortunately i can buy a pre-modded saturn with RAM cart and such for about 130 bucks, which isn't bad. unfortunately, buying a pre-modded ps2 seems like kind of a ripoff, considering all of the various swap and softmod options available.
so my question is: which one is best suited for playing PSX backup discs? for either a ps2 fat or slim? there's all these things like swap magic and breaker pro and free mcboot and it's all really confusing, since i've done a lot of reading and it doesn't seem like there's any one simple solution that everyone uses. everyone seems to use their own preferred method for booting psx backups.
i just wanna play the recently translated policenauts, guys!
