    This sounds sexy. Hope it won't cost an arm and a leg, though... And I hope it's compatible with PS2 as well. Just for lulz.

    hell yeah that will be sweet! i got a psone and a psx, ready to mod both!

    i really want this added to dreamcast, i know there is one, but its complicated to make.

    now that people are making ODDE's its time they start coming out for older system. screw lasers and discs, time for digital content!

    You can check out the work progress and vote on sd/hdd on their forums at their website. (The source I posted)

    Er, what.
    You need a specific PS3 for mod it plus it's costs like three times more than a PS1.

    You can play psx games from the hard drive of a ps3? I thought you could only play burned psx games with multiman.

    What, 3 times? Did you take that figure because it is the PS'3' to the PS'1'? You can pick up a Playstation 1 for about 5 - 10 pounds... /sigh

    I was just saying you should not just throw random figures out. It's pointless and mis-informing. Something only morons do

    Okay if you're playing that game.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    Really, who cares. Mostly everyone knows the estimated price of a second hand PS1 and a PS3. My point was clear, you're just nitpicking.

    Edit: Oh and if I have to give the right prices, I'd have to look up prices for each region to suit everyone on this forum.

    I don't even know why I am writing back, it hardly seems worth the effort for someone like you. I am not 'nitpicking' like an ape, I was just saying. People should not just spew rubbish from their months and not even give it a second thought.

    Plus I just had a quick look myself, if you choose completed listings, it shows PSX should £5.99, and a similair sell for dozens.

    Three? I got my PS1 for less than $20. Show me $60 PS3s and you have a friend for life.

    yea...there are three methods

    PS2 SLIM (BEST ONE)

    tape the sensors down [sometimes there is 2-3 sensors depending on your SCPH model] (not going into tedious details) so the disk spins witth the lid open...get a game with a big file size like Tony Hawks Pro Skater 2...and when the game slows down to check for piracy...swap it out..ONCE...it slows down enough to where it's not going to damage anything...(if you're careful..which how slow it slows down to check..it's pretty slow)...i've played all Syphon Filters, FFVII, Dino Crisis 2, Medievil, Crash Bandicoot, Spiderman 2 and more using this method...with 100% emulation with zero skipping or video / audio issues....

    MAGIC PSX DISK SWAP TRICK METHOD: (second best. done on original PSX)
    years ago there was actually a swap method for the original PSX...but that one you CAN do something stupid...as that method, you swapped it THREE TIMES

    you had to get some cotton to hold down the little grey button near the corner of the disk tray...or you could open it up and put an item there so it spins without the external button being pushed....
    you would put in a game with a large file size...with research I found out that Tony Hawks Pro Skater 2 was the best one for this method..so I bought it just for this purpose...

    once when it slowed down to check for piracy (BACKUP IN)...you had to listen to the "whirr" it gave when the disk slowed down
    SWAP TO REAL disk once when the PS logo slows up
    and When the logo dissapeared, SWAP with your BACKUP

    if your timing wasn't SPOT on...certain cutscenes might skip, or sound might not work at times..or you might even get a black screen when a certain time came up...I remember trying it hundreds of times and some PSX games like "ONE" didn't work using that method

    the tape and tissue mod on the PS2 Slim is a cheap method that works pretty damn well and is not well known much...

    PS2 HOLD SWAP *NOT RECCOMENDED*

    There is ONE PS2 swap method that will eventually fuck up your drive motor...

    *YOU WERE NOW WARNED*

    go to the PS2 menu by not inserting a disk...when the CD icon shows up...put in a legit game...

    now once the game show up instead of a CD icon HOLD DOWN THE DVD MOTOR and Swap to the burned PSX One...it will read it like it's a legit game..push X to boot to it

    . stupid method. and it wil break your PS2 slim eventually...

    Credits go to a fellow ol' english sounding bloke with the youtube name of "hoptoitgromit" it was THE best and most imformative video on youtube for this...and it seems to have been removed....

    I made a video that pretty much mimicked his tutorial...if people want to I can re-upload it.
