Default A Few Questions

sponsored links

 
HI I WANT AN EXTERNAL MODCHIP FOR MY PS2 THAT WILL PLAY DVDR GAMES AND DVDR FILMS. IS THERE ONE THAT DOES NOT REQUIRE ANY SOLDERING OR OPENING OF THE PS2? IT WOULD REALLY HELP IF YOU COULD E-MAIL ME.



OH YEAH, PS2 SILVERS - DO THEY PLAY WITHOUT A CHIP?

Like ps2daddy says, nope...

You have 2 options:
The sbox/r-mod combo

Or the Magic2

Both have advantages and disads....

sbox/r-mod combo
Pros: Only 1 total wire to solder.
Boots everything
Cons: you still have to open the PS2 to fit the r-mod
Once you add up the price, $40 for sbox and r-mod, $25-40 for Gameshark, $10 for DMC Demo, needed to boot DVD-rs, you are looking at $75-$100+

Magic 2
Pros: COMPLETE NO SWAP
Awesome performance
No weird USB modchip(sbox)

Cons:
you WILL NEED a pro to install it, which is costly.
Obvious price, but not much more than the sbox/r-mod combo...

Hope this helps...
