    I have a PSone I am looking to sell on ebay that is modded with a chip. Problem is I don't know if my item will get taken down from the site due to console modding not being a technique ebay endorses. Has anyone here ever sold a modded console on ebay? Also should I say in the description that the console can play backups? Thanks.

    It is against eBay policy to sell modded consoles. Words like home-brew and backups gets your listing flagged (when you try and list it a message from eBay may even tell you these types of items aren't allowed). In short, I wouldn't do it.

    By the way, what are you looking to get for it? I may be interested in a classic DDR box. Been ages since I played and I don't even think I have my ps1 phat anymore.
