Hi all this is my first post on this board..
I've got a V.1 ps2 I bought from a friend (hopefully it doesn't die) before that I had 3 different ps2 2 died (stupid sony) and gave the other to my family before I moved out. Then I got an xbox and modded that sucka and I love it. Well I wanna come back the ps2 so I bought one for a 100 bucks and plan on modding it.
I used to have my ps2 modded umm I think it was... Well can't think of it but it was about the size of your pinky nail and had wires coming out of it got it from www.modchip.com the day before 9-11 so if you know the name tell me. I rember having to hold the power button in then put in the gameshark then doing everything in gameshark and half the time it didn't work.. Well I've been looking around the ps2 mod chip scene again and noticed that now all you have to do is pop the disc in (Hurray)
Question 1: What is a good mod chip? I would like one that all you have to do is pop in the disc and it should work. I ike the Magic chips or whatever there called.
Question 2: Are they still a bitch to soldder?
Question 3: Can I put any old HD in the ps2 yet? or do we have to wait for it to be released or get on from Japan?
Thanks for all the help and I love the site.
