Ok, been reading up on softmod and hardmod, looks easier to hardmod it to me (i'd rather chip it and forget it). I see the Dou3 and the Mars 501, which is better? or is there something even better? Basically This is so I can play backup PS1 games, the softmod doesn't look to work well unlike a swap magic (which both look like a PITA!) I have the first PSTwo Slim (Like V12 I think). I already resistor modded the laser, so this has to go into account to I believe. I've already xeno chipped my GC and modded a few PS1 back in the day, just never kept up with the PS2. TIA!!!
