im considering swapping my new ps2 v7, with my cousins ps2 v4(he doesnt want to play backups), because of problems i get with splinter cell (have used quality media etc blah blah), not loading up and future copy protected games no working.
Im wanting to do this as, my friends both have a ps2 v4 with no solder and ar 1.9 and splinter cell works. I have been told that some games are copy protected and sony implemented new code in the ps2 v7 to stop copied games to work.
But my question is his ps2 v4 is 1-2 years old, it gets moderate use, will the laser be ok, and are v7 lasers better than v4.
Bascially do you think its worth (considering i dont want mesiah etc)
