    Ok im giving up on the mod chips for the PS2. None of them sound like they will for sure work, 100%. Buyritegames.com had a Jap ps2 for 320.00 I was going to go buy it then today I saw they jacked their price up to 350!. How lame. They just added a stupid feture that letsyou watch DVds from all countrys. I don't want that crap, I don't need it. Anyone know anyplaces that sell just Jap PS2 that can play on U.S circuts and nothing else? I don't want extra BS.

    So far iv tried

    All I know is that buyrite sucks. That's what I've heard at various forums including this one.

    I actually got my VF4 at Japan Video Games... I didn't even know they had a website. /versus/images/icons/tongue.gif It's a small place, but I've been going there for more than 5 years, so you know they're legit. Of course I've never had to order anything (them being 10 minutes away and all).

    It doesn't look like any are in stock at the moment, but <a target="_blank" href=http://www.videogamedepot.com>http://www.videogamedepot.com</a> gets a few Japanese PS2s in every week and sells them for $299. I'd write/call them to inquire about one. They most definitely will not try to unfairly jack up the price. If they do, I personally will go over there and yell at the manager. (^^)

    If you really want the most out of VF4 without knowing Japanese though, you're best off waiting another month for the US version. There's more text in VF4 than usual for a fighting game, especially in the training modes.

    Hmm. I don't know. I just installed a No-Solder mod chip for my v5 PS2 (actually, Howard helped me install it), and it took no more than 15 minutes, no fuss, no muss. Even if you don't use a mod chip, you can use the knife swap trick + GameShark 2 to play JP VF4 on US PS2.

    Also, FWIW, I ordered 3 PS2 VF4 sticks from BuyRite last week and the shipment came promptly.

    Howard bought a couple, I *think* it was the Stealth 4, but I'm not completely sure. Check www.lik-sang.com for details.

    Doesn't really have a name, just "No-solder mod". But it doesn't play original imports, so it's up to you.

    Try Foundmy.com. They get messiah chips (aka "The Device") every now and then . I got mine a couple of days ago. It direct boots everything (including import originals). It is a lil' pricey - around 95 beenz with shipping. Its a bitch trying to get people to install it, as it has 23 wires! Foundmy.com just got a shipment in, but that is going towards filling pre-orders. They will be taking new pre-orders in a couple of days, so i would keep checking that site. Also check out freedomlives.com for modchip info. This place installs Messiah chips, but you have to mail in your ps2 - they are located in Chicago.

    Hope this helps.
