Default Jap vs US PS2 ?

sponsored links

I am sure this has been asked before but a search on the forums did me no good. Perhaps the topic is too old for discussion now. Just curious as to what benefits the Jap PS2 is supposed to have over the US PS2, as I noticed a few shops pushing the fact that they sell Jap PS2s - claiming they are better because they are "universal." Will US consoles not play Jap games? Bit lost here. TIA for any help.

Don't know why those shops claim they are universal. Jap consoles will not play US games unless you modify the console.

One advantage that Jap consoles have over US ones is that they have some cool colors.
