    If you want to be carefull yet are desprate just buy a Japanese PS2.

    *edit* Oh by the way i suggest buying the games. PS2 games arent gone yet so you can still buy them. Burning is mean and hurts my pay

    wats a slid disc?? is it one of those flip top??
    i would have done dat before... but what am i ganna do with all these burned ps2 games i got?? i have nearly 60 burned games. it would just be a waste all those DVDs i burned

    edit: by the time ps3 comes out on Nov. ps2 games will probably harder to buy out stores dats y ive been burning ps2 games and saving them.

    I heard about those flip top..
    but how does it work??

    The PS2 will be still getting new games for a couple of years. Sony intends to keep the PS2 alive to keep their market share till the PS3 can hold on its own.

    I have dozens of ps2 games. All pirated. I guess that sums up my opininon. Not having a modchip is dumb in a monetary perspective.

    Doesn't having a modchip wear out your PS2's laser? I'm not positive but the life of a modded PS2 isn't a long one (then again some people's PS2 don't last long anyway).

    I envy Americans who always get games 2+ months earlier then Europeans, I bought an American PS2 and buy legit American games, I can't see why you can't just get a Japanese PS2 and import games instead...

    Technically, no. Just using the PS2 normally wears out the lazer, Chipping' your PS2 just lessens the time till it wears out completely. But you can get a good 3 years play before that happens from what ive heard.
    My friends Modded PS2 only works when put upright.

    But i intend to chip my PS2 when i get my PS3. For somewhat obvious reasons.

    As to buying a Japanese PS2, and importing the games, it works out alot cheaper to chip the PS2 and download the copied games, or even buy them.

    Yes, but I'd rather support the gaming industry by buying their games upfront. I'd like to help hardworking developers (which I will someday hopefully be apart of) to continue making more good games.

    And in saying that I mean supporting good companies who make good games, not people who do those shitty movie > game transitions...

    Cough* EA.

    I agree that supporting game companys by buying their games is a good notion. But my main interest is games from the japanese market. But some of these games do make it into the english language via the american market.

    As you personally know, i live in the UK, meaning if i were to support these companies, i would have to buy both a japanese and american PS2 console, and import the games. Now if your lucky you can get both for about 150 - 200 pounds, so thats around £400 [about 755 US Dollars] for just the two (soon to be old) consoles. And the games, depending on where you buy them range from £10 - 50 (not including ebay).

    Now i can understand if you are an American, you can simply buy the Japanese PS2. But some gamers like the European Extremem difficulty setting that we get with most mainstream games, and would be spending over 700 Dollars just to play the games they want, at the convienence of making the games designers happy. Not just that, the PS3 is just around the corner, and its going to cost even more to buy that, and like the Xbox 360, there will be more expensive games, with minimal satisfaction.

    So, tho' gaming piracy is wrong, the smarter choice would be modding your console. I know what most peoples wallets will agree with.
