you can softmod the console (like swaping with the magic swap in the PS2), you need either a PSO Ep I&II with a Broadband adaptor OR a Max Drive PRO. (and it makes wonders)

well I saw one of those SD card adapters on Ebay for $50 + I would need an action replay also so that option would be out of the question..

Or if you are really cheap, you could get a Ninjamod. They're 19.99 at divineo.....that's where I got my modded GC case from.

I can get the Max Drive PRO but does it really work like a Magic Swap for PS2? (put in the disk, boot it, then put in the backup game?)

Max Drive Pro is probably more than your $30 budget, but you won't have to solder. You can only get it from one source and they used to be on back-order for a while in the past. I don't know they well they handle multi-disc games, although there are only a few multi-disc games.

Viper is probably one of the more expensive chips along with the Qoob Pro. As others have mentioned, the Xeno, Duo and Qoob SX are excellent options. The Xeno and Duo are not upgradeable.

    I'd say there would be more PS5 exclusives...if people could actually buy PS5s.

  • AkiraKurusu @ AkiraKurusu:
    I mean, if no-one can buy a PS5, and thus is stuck with PS4 (Pros), then companies would still see some profit from developing PS4 games with PS5 upgrades; meanwhile, if they developed a PS5 game, then everyone who can't get that console won't buy that game, especially at launch.

    Nah every console starts early with low libraries

    well theyre churning them out as fast as they possibly can, not like Xbox or PC are faring much better with the chip shortages

  • Xzi @ Xzi:
    and games still take 4-6 years to develop regardless, so its not like sony can conjure up new exclusives out of thin air

    Makes me wonder what they have now and are actually hiding from the public

    I hope in the next 5 years they can move on to even more realistic skin renders and not just make characters look like Shiney clay molds
