PSX-J help needed
Hello, yes I'm new here but have using Playstations for many years. Yes this is the PS2 section, but a "PSX" is essentially an upgraded version of a PS2. I recently purchased a PSX 250GB playstation/dvr from Japan model DESR-7100, and obviously the XMB is in Japanese as is the manuals. Is it possible to change the XMB to English on one of these machines or should I start learning Japanese now haha.
Clearly I cannot post a link directly as this is my first post, but the PSX can be seen on wikipedia as PSX (DVR).
Hope this is possible!
and sorry I didn't know about the angry icon in thread title, I'm not angry!
lol, I didn't think they actually released this console, I thought it was buried before reaching production. But after some googling I doubt there's a way to make the xmb english, simply because it was never released outside japan and the amazingly low sales so no real "scene" developed.
Yes, as you can see it was most definitely released :), just as there are PSX only released games around also.
And yes, I have gone through countless hours of searching the net/google playstation sites and the like. All come up with PSX-OS which is for the original Playstation. This site seems the most comprehensive with Playstation knowledge/know-how, seems fair to ask here.
Don't get me wrong I'm not bashin at all I was just surprised. You might have trouble finding help though, I'd suggest trying Free McBoot but I'm guessing not since that works off an update(?) procedure which would probably be totally different for the PSX. Good luck, hope someone can give ya the help you need.
I'm not sure using Free McBoot would be a good idea, the PSX DVR was the first sony product to use the XMB gui that is still used on the PS3. So I would have to assume similar coding, although for all intents and purposes it is still a PS2 with extras...if anything something similar to what the PS3 could have been.
I certainly hope so, my Japanese isn't all that great!
