Your kidding right? Its says $7 US wholesale so about $15 US from the cheapest supplier on the web. If this is for real all I can say is "WOW", and how do i go about installing this gizmo, hope someone veifies this soon.

Bleepster, got to give it ya on a plate mate! what a load of crap!! LOL...

If you look at the top open piccy you'll still see the little metal plate stuck in with a bit of white sticky paper as you would on a original PS2 top. This metal plate is for the expansion bay screws...

You can even see where they've rubbed down the numbers on the memory card ports.. and even see where they've hacksawed along the ridge in the front of the PS2..

The receipt says Cub Foods on it and includes ' complimentory phone calls ' on it!!

and why oh why would you have brass hinges on an all plastic moulding?

I've got to admit its a good idea to have a flip lid to swap the disc but... sorry I'm not convinced about this site at all.. Just my opinion mate.

If its for real then I will take my comments back and give the owners of the site a pat on the back. Just can't see it.... Why spend $6000 dollars on a tooling then allow you to download the plans... don't make sense to me...

Mike ( Spagboll ) ...

damn, heh.......guess we just have to see. It's a nice idea though.

I think he built the prototype and is wiring $$ to China to have someone manufacture it. The pics are the ones he made, not machined.

Anyhow, new ideas are always cool.

How about lets discuss in theory, would this work? Can you do a swap with the cover completely off? Say I have no cover at all on my PS2. How about the cover on the Laser Assembly, can that be removed easily?

good point on the laser assembly. if it looked anything like the psone in there, then there might be a chance of this working, but my guess is that it won't.

You know, my friend did this to his system...not this particular way, but with flexiglass instead(more sturdy than plexiglass. All he did was measure the drive(which I think was like 5"x 5"), screwed in some metal hinges, then glued the flexiglass with some type of glue that came with the flexiglass itself...he was selling this process at my college for like 15 bucks...but I don't know if it's reliable though...I mean, the heat from the system itself could possibly melt the glue and + hot glued leaking into system = bad ****...

So, his system does work? I guess the cover on top of the laser assembly just comes off with couple screws?
Well, the glue stuff being aside, once it's manufactured (if it works) there would be no problems of that.

The only thing is the cover on top of the laser assembly, that I can think off. I don't want to bother taking apart my ps2 just to look. Maybe you can ask your friend if the cover for the laser is easy to remove, therefore exposing the disc so we can do a swap
