    FYI
    NTSC J is Jap set (Japanese Language)
    NTSC U/C is US set (English Language)
    PAL is Euro set (English Language)

    Note:Games that comes out in the market 1st are NTSC J followed by NTSC U/C and lastly PAL.

    most ppl would buy the original and modify it to play DVD-r or CD-r(pirated). The final cost usually add up to around $650 to $750 depending on the modification and chip used.
    I personally got a modified PAL version with Action Replay 2. Paid S$750 for it. Its modified to play NTSC J, NTSC US, PAL, all pirated(DVD-r and CD-r) and DVDs from all 6-region codes.
    A friend of mine thought it was a very good deal(i think so too, hehe) since i do not have to worry about what i can or cannot play as i can play everything in the market.
    Got it from Deelie Wheelie(opp Supreme CD at Takashimaya), ask for Benson and say Kwok Lin referred. Hopefully you get a bit of discount.
    Cheers.

    Been really tempted to buy one for FFX.... but first, gotta do some homework first before I actually get it. /versus/images/icons/smile.gif

    Just wanted to ask, what mod is supposed to be preferred nowadays ? I keep hearing about Origa, etc etc. Some PS2s where you gotta keep pressing this button in order for Japanese games to play, so what should be the mod that I'm looking for which is relatively hassle free, yet gives me access to everything ?

    Then there are horror stories of how store owners cheat the consumers by selling fake PS2 controllers, removing the components of the lens and replacing them with inferior ones, among others, so what exactly should I be looking out for when getting a PS2 ? Recommendations ? Thoughts ? Advice ?
