Question Swap Trick for PSX

sponsored links

It seems to me the only way to get pass in games where they do not allow you to save before swapping disc is to do the swap trick.

Unfortunately, the swap trick damages your psx.

How long did it take your psx to be damaged after doing the swap trick?

How much does it take to repair it though?

Some say theyve been using the swap trick for years with no problems but others say the opposite. It all depends in how good your laser is and how well you treat it. To repair the laser is like 15 to 20 bucks.

15 to 20 bucks to repair by yourself or by a Sony?

Why not buy the ps-x change, it's like a boot disk and works for all models of psx. The swap trick is a sure laser killer, spend the $20 and get the boot disk. Tronix sells them
