I'm surprised there's never really been a thread about modding on this site. For those who don't completly understand what I'm talking about, modding your console will allow you to do things like play import games (games made in Japan, for example, will be playable on the US version of the console), use emmulators to play old games like NES, SNES, and N64 games, and you can even back-up your games to a blank disc and play them on your console. Now, this is not necessarily legal or illigal because you should be allowed to make a backup of a game just as you make a backup of a song, which is completly legal. PC gamers copy their games to their computers all the time because in many cases, they have to or else they can't play the game. So, I'm trying to figure out what modchip I should get for my PS2, so that I can play import PS2 and most importantly PS1 games. A few months ago I bought this Japanese game called Vib-ribbon but I don't know what modchip to get for my US PS2. Also, I would like to be able to play games that I've copied on to DVD. Does anyone here a modchip installed in their PS2 and/or know what modchip I should get?
