    PS2 modding thingy ma-bob

    Just wondering if anyone has any personal knowledge of PS2 modding.

    No, not XBOX modding, a PS2.

    yes there is ps2-scene.org

    but it "sucks" compared to xbox-scene.org

    in that there are NO tutorials, and no real "newb FAQ" that answers all.


    Dammit I want a HDD in my PS2, I want to be able FTP games to the PS2.

    I want to turn on the PS2 and see a list of games on the HDD, choose one and it plays.

    I also want the saves to go onto the HDD.

    I digress, no one has said they could help!

    Not sure about the legality of this... Whether it _should_ be legal is another issue altogether, but you might want to think again about posting here and risking the wrath of an admin... :/

    That said, I don't know the first thing about console modding. If I did, I'd have no problem helping you out

    Hmmm good point, but modding a PS2 only voids the warranty.

    nothing illegal about wanting to run imports or backups.

    True. Saving games to the hard drive is perfectly legal so long as you own an original copy of the game. If you own a CD, you can make a cassette copy to play in your cars stereo. You can't, however, give that copy to a friend.
    As far as modding PS2's go, looks like it will be a *****. The chips that I have seen all require lots of wires to be soldered. Not as easy as an xbox, thats for sure. But if you trust your soldering skills, good luck with it.
    Spent so far: $1,755

    Well I am not in the market to mod it myself, I know plenty of places to get it done.

    What I do need to know is what to buy and how it all works.
