true but the best thing about the ps2 hdd is lets just say your ps2 laser ever die. Unlike the ps3 you can still play your backups from the hdd and you can rip your ps2 games from the computer and make an iso out of them and load them on the hdd and play. I think it haves an 85% compatibility rate of all ps2 games. But also don't forget not everyone haves a backwards compatibility ps2... but for me if anyone haves a soft modded ps2 try to get a phat with the hdd (I think the ps3 scene is just like the ps2 scene loading the games off the hdd) but the ps2 scene is much more mature. I never even bothered with swap magic or cogswap. HDD is the way to go
2/16/12 Being an active member on this site was cool hell I enjoyed it. But now I gotta move on from the PS3 scene hopefully in the future things will get better for the scene and I wish the devs good luck. So in this sig Goodbye fellow members I wish you all the best!
