    Ah is this the VAST mem card (can't view the vid here (at work)). They say it will make all other PS2 & PSTwo chips obsolete. If it does work as well as the claims suggest ima get me the new lighter model PSTwo whoop!

    If this has something to do with the independence exploit, then wouldn't it not work on new pstwo units?

    I'm not 100% sure but I believe it uses some exploit via the MagiGate technology which is indeed in all versions of PS2/Two.

    It's probably going to be expensive as f**k! Cause like, no other place makes playing backups this easy, so they have the control and POWA!!!! But like, maybe it won't be, I don't know... Would be nice if it didn't cost too much.

    Great news for PS2 scene but isn't it a little too late for that? The Ps2 is dying slowly and there aren't any good games in the horizon either. If they can get the price right, then maybe this gadget might be a hit in the market.

    I read an article today on max saying that Sony intends to keep developing for PS2 for the next 2-4 years lol. Theys should stop imo and concentrate on PS3!

    Yes, it does use Magic Game to do it.

    The PS3 failed so they're going to to the original plan.

    Umm..I don't think PS3 failed. Not until we see PS3 sales when both MGS4 and FF13 come out.

    And how ps3 failed?
    It just takes some time until they get more games and people will get they're full hd tvs and start using blu-ray etc.
    Ability to play dvds was one of the selling points of ps2. Without it it wouldn't sell so well.

    And it's great to see that there's still some new things coming to ps2 too.

    by going for bluray and asking a huge retail price and losing too much money per ps3 unit they produce and by losing too many exclusives etc...

    the list is endless

    lol wut

    I jumped on the PS2 bandwagon a little late (picked up a PS2 Slim around January) and I'd love to get my paws on one of these!

    Lots of great games in the PS2's history... and I don't wanna pay for 'em anymore! [​IMG]

    ok little offtopic:
    blu-ray is winning the format war afaik. Atleast now.
    And ps3 enough exclusives imo.
    gt5, ffxiii, mgs4, heavenly sword, lair, ratchet&clanck, haze, killzone2, littlebigplanet etc. "the list in endless" ; )
    And there's many great multiplatform games.
    Retail price is not high. You'll get blu-ray player and hd DVR (atleast in europe heh) in the same package.
    And there's even cellphones what cost more than ps3 and sells fine.
    Of course cheaper ps3 would be better but what can you do?

    Yes they're losing money from consoles, but would you like to pay even more so they earn money instead? Sony will get they're money from selling games, tvs and stuff.

    YEAH XBOX HAS HALO 3.. oh wait you can get metroid prime 3 on wii. It's not the same, it's better. I thought that you would like wii, because it's cheaper. And you like consoles with cheap retail price? werijrijwqapqierj

    Ok ps2 memorycard modchip... sounds cool. Like someone said, they should have made it some time ago. It's almost late. :/

    this is not a mod chip, it is just software on the memory card.

    No mod chip is involved in the process.

    I'm SO getting one of these.

    I have been meaning to get 'Swap Magic' but i have never had the time.

    Nope.

    If it works like they say it does and it doesn't require a swap disk then I would so get one. So many PS2 games that I missed that are either hard to get or came out in Japan only and would require swap disk to play

    Has there been any word on when it might be coming out? or was it just another fake?
