    Only problem is you'll need a modded PS2 to make one. Ask around, there will be people around who has a PS2 or even an FMCB they don't mind making for you.

    You can get a mod chip put in. Easy.

    The main reason is the Wii has an SD card slot, while the PS2 doesn't.

    Isn't the main reason software/OS based?

    I'm not talking about the difficulty to create an exploit for hacking, I'm talking about the hacking process itself. With a Wii you can use an SD card, which is something most everybody has. With a PS2 (and other old systems) you have to get something like a modchip to load custom software with.

    Dreamcast could boot CDR games with a CDR boot disk -- because of an explot in the OS.

    Yes, but that is a very rare thing. Besides, I'm talking about the PS2, which can't. The Wii has 3 exploits that only require an SD card. That's not an option for the PS2 since it doesn't support SD cards.

    Just saying it is certainly not the main reason.

    Consoles without SD cards can be hacked without using mod chips; therefore, SD cards can't be the main reason.

    Might be pretty hard to find one this day and age, but it's worth a shot

    While he's at it, he could look for Swap Magic or something too.

    Or heck, just buy HDLoader

    PS2 is not hard to hack by any means. Its just that the wii is easier.
