    Jumping the gun alittle since I have a long to do list. Thinking of doing a Ps2P but not going to even bother if I need the DD , so the question is can the slim Ps2's run without the DD? I know the Phat can but the gamecube cannot(I know it's nintendo).

    Afaik it should boot up fine without the DVD drive present.

    However I'm not sure how you would proceed in executing games ;p

    Hmm.
    Possible yes.

    But keep in mind that it's laggy with video's are playing.
    And doesn't have 100% compatibility.

    I will when I get around to it, First thing's first though I need to finish re-re-re-re-re-doing my GcP (did I add enough re-'s for it to be accurate?)
