I want to get one in the clear blue color like the ones only released in Japan. What do you guys think I should get the 2 magic swap disks or a Game Shark? Advantages, disadvantages? I know that the Magic disks dont allow you to play PSOne game, does the Gameshark let you do that?

Yes, the GS does load a PSX game using the knife trick, I know, I done it. I cant afford a DVDR burner or the media for it, so I got board one day and tried it with a PSX copy when the wife wasnt arround, and I was supprised that it did work. Just pop in the GS disk, load it, wait for it to stop spinning (if you listen closely enough you can hear it spin-down), use the knife to move the cog, swap the cd's, push the tray back in, move the cog back to lock in the drive, and then press x, or whatever it is, and away you play.

Hmm.. Maybe it would be cheaper to get a GameShark rather than the Magic disks. Does the Gameshark boot PS2 CDR's and DVD'R too. ->I know it doesnt boot anything past the regular CD size, so no DVD rips or anything.
